We are hosting a Cake Sale on Friday 26th May as a school fundraiser for our End of Year Disco and Graduation Day. If everyone can support by dropping cakes/buns/baked goods into school on Thursday 25th May in the afternoon that would be much appreciated. We will be selling Tea/Coffee and a slice of cake for €3 for parents at the gate from 8.50 to 9.20am - all support as always greatly appreciated. During the day we will have a 'coffee shop' for each class with a selection of small treats and a drink - we are asking for a €3 contribution from each child if possible please.

Our amazing school football team plays in the Fingal Schools Final on Thursday 18th May at 10am. Supporters from Junior Infants to Sixth Class will travel to the game by coach - we would kindly ask for €5 per child to cover the park entrance fee and contribute towards the bus. Adults will be charged an entrance fee of €5 at the gate so please have cash on the day if you wish to attend! UPDATE May 18th - FINGAL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS 2023 -  massive congratulations to the team on a brilliant performance and their coaches, Trish, Amy Fisher & Daniel

It's that time of the year again - we need your uniform orders by Wednesday 17th May please. Based on feedback from both children and parents, we have asked for the netting to be removed from the tracksuit bottoms and for a label to be added to the top to allow for a name to be written. The kit comes with a jersey, shorts and socks and the price is €65 - it is not possible to swap out the socks unfortunately. Just a reminder that sizes run at 4,6,8,10,12,13, XS and S. Please text/email Rachel with your child's name, size and quantity required by Wednesday 17th to avoid delays. Anyone who has small sizes that will not be used by siblings is welcome to drop them in and we would be happy to keep them as spares. UPDATE 25th May - ORDERS HAVE NOW BEEN PLACED and cannot be changed

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 .
