Important school information for 2019/20

26th Jun 2019


After lengthy consultation with all the stakeholders ( parents, BOM, staff and pupils!! ) we've decided to continue the normal arrangements ( Tuesday / Friday tracksuits ) with the following amendments :

All pupils will be permitted to wear runners throughout the year . At certain stages , particularly during cold patches,  pupils may wear tracksuits throughout the week similar to this year . 

In light of this it would be advisable to have more than one tracksuit for your child . The main reason we are altering things slightly is to facilitate the teachers in doing PE on random days when the weather allows during the winter. 


Please note that on the basis of survey feedback from parents we will be trying to provide swimming every year  from 3rd-6th . There is a possibility that 1st/2nd class pupils may partake also but this is dependant on the swimming pool and the bus company being able to facilitate such large numbers - further info will be provided during the summer .

For pupils going swimming the arrangements will likely be 4 weeks from mid-Nov to mid- Dec and another 4 weeks during January  . We have met Sportslink in Santry and agreed a booking provisionally- we have also brought 5th/6th class on a trial run two weeks ago and received positive feedback .

The expected cost would be €10 per session to cover tuition and transport . We would envisage going on Fridays after small break to arrive back before home time . All pupils are required to partake as this is part of our PE curriculum , although if there are medical/other reasons for not partaking they should be relayed to the school by email by Friday 5th July 2019. 

Staffing arrangements for the school year 2019/20 are posted in the tab ' Our School ' under the heading staff
