Fáilte chuig ár suíomh idirlíon ! Important info for Aug 27th

Dear Parents/Guardians :

 

We are delighted to announce the reopening of our school on Thursday 27th Aug in line with the government document " Roadmap to reopening " from the dept of education . This is , as always ,  dependent on current advice from the governmentbut there appears to be a very strong will to re-open the schools safely if at all possible . 

There will be some basic information here which will be added to in the next 10 days .

 

Booklists

Booklists are available here- check the latest news section -  and the easiest way to organise your child's books is through Bookhaven in Ashbourne using their quickcodes system . If you would like to get the books yourself you are welcome to find an alternative source but for handiness the quickcodes system is hard to beat and delivery can be organised aswell .

Please note that the booklists in the policies and documents section on this website has last years ( 2019/20 ) - this years will be uploaded but in the meantime the lists from last year are identical EXCEPT for the small world book - we use a two year rotation on them , so this year (2020/21) , Juniors & Senior Infants buy the Senior Infs book, 1st and 2nd buy the 2nd class book, 3rd & 4th buy the 4th class books and 5th & 6th class buy the 6th class books

 

Uniforms

Please wear the same tracksuit as last year if it still fits !! If buying a new tracksuit please just get a cheap navy one in Tescos/Dunnes etc .. as we intend to change our school tracksuit when things settle down . Also we are more than happy for the moment for kids to wear the tracksuit all the time with runners . 

 

School Fees

The school fees for the year will be confirmed later in the week . Last year the fee was €120 and this year the figure will be the same or slightly lower . 

 

School calendar

The school calendar is uploaded to this website .

 

Please see attached letter (in the latest news section) from the dept for parents/guardians of our pupils .

 

***** COMMUNION DATE ***** will be Saturday the 3rd of October , time TBC .

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 .
