Dear Parents/Guardians :

In light of the unprecedented events surrounding the coronavirus , and the knock on effects it is having nationwide and worldwide , we are endeavouring to provide meaningful schoolwork that we hope can be done without exerting major pressure at home in already difficult circumstances . 

By going to the latest news on this website you will be able to see work left by the teacher online and comments regarding learning and assessment . Please note that a huge amount of work was done in the form of workpacks for the infant class by Amy and these were distributed on Saturday 21st March and Wednesday 25th March - the online work is in some ways a bit more difficult at that age level . That being said , these links may be of assistence to parents of infant pupils :

A lot of the pupils in our school last year did an online coding course called "hourofcode" https://hourofcode.com/ie/learn . It's quite user-friendly and you can adjust for the different age levels very easily . I would suggest the minecraft hour of code to get started as most kids are familiar with the concept and it's quite easy to begin with .

Also there is a good coding website offering free access during the school closures called codecademy https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-how-to-code

*****************************************************************************

2nd-6th have been swimming on Fridays in Sportslink in Santry and did their last lesson on Friday 24th Jan . 

Aoife O Connor's class (3rd/4th) were on News2day in September  !! https://twitter.com/news2dayRTE/status/1169275859582107649

You've probably noticed that the school is looking really well inside and out !!  - a big thank you to the DAA ( Dublin Airport Authority ) for providing over 70 volunteers to work as part of their community day for Kilcoskan NS in mid August . https://twitter.com/dublinairport/status/1167370166163910657?lang=en

 

We have had a number of enquiries about after school childcare / pick ups for infants . Just to let you know that we have a local childcare centre called Tippytoes situated less than 1km from the school , the brochure is located in the 'policies and documents' section on this website- Click on the policies and documents tab itself to bring you to the brochure  .

 

Some brilliant photos of the school ( and an amazing video ) taken by a drone from the Glenveagh company are on the homepage/news section - the visit was organised to inspire children in school to have a greater interest in the STEM subjects ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths )

Dear Parents/Guardians, we are still experiencing problems with traffic and parking in the school grounds . A letter was sent home with the pupils on traffic management around the school grounds . If you require further information please contact us .
