The BOM and School Staff are looking forward to welcoming all our pupils and parents/guardians back to school fro Term 1 2020/2021.
We are satisfied that we have control measures in place to ensure that this will be a safe reopening. It will take some time for all of us to get used to the “new circumstances” as we become familiar with the new routines and procedures designed to keep everyone safe and to prevent the spread of the virus. There will, undoubtedly, be some unforeseen challenges and we will deal with these as they arise.
We would like to thank you for your co-operation and patience and look forward to working with you as we assist the children to adapt to the necessary changes. We are also conscious of the fact that our pupils have not been in school since March and that they are looking forward to coming back to school to meet their friends again.
A letter detailing the protocol for returning to school has been posted to all families today, Aug. 19th. The Board of Management are happy for children to wear whatever is manageable, practical, appropriate and comfortable for parents/guardians for the return to school.

I extend a very warm welcome to you as you visit our school website. I hope it will give you an insight into the educational experience we offer. Every child in our school is valued as an individual and our aim is to develop each pupil academically, spiritually, morally, physically and socially. As children progress through the school, our team of experienced and dedicated staff plan meticulously to deliver a stimulating, engaging curriculum for the pupils in their care. A calm, safe environment prevails throughout our school leading to the wholehearted engagement of both pupils and staff, who create in turn the ideal atmosphere for teaching, learning and mutual respect. Ours is a close knit and inclusive school where respect is consciously taught, and where children are instilled with a lifelong love and enjoyment of learning.
