We are all using the online platform, Seesaw, from Monday onwards. Seesaw is one of the suggested methods of communication by the Department of Education and Skills. Those at the junior end of the school are very familiar with this for some time now and, to connect in a more meaningful way with those at the senior end, every child and family is invited to connect with Seesaw. If you wish to  get instructions on how to do this, please ensure that your teacher has a parent’s  email address.

If you need further instructions on how to upload work to Seesaw once you have connected, click here. How To_ Home Learning with Seesaw One Pager for Students

Well done to all for continuing your learning in so many different ways.

Welcome to Term 3, 2020!


As we begin Term 3, the days are bright, the sun is shining and we see signs of Spring all around us. We know that we are all learning something new as each day passes, albeit in a very different way. We, as teachers, are really enjoying seeing some of your work and we hope that you all continue to stay healthy.

Homework for the new fortnight starting next Monday, 27th will be posted  here on Friday. You can continue with the work assigned before Easter for this current week.

Finally, it’s great to see our good friends, Gillian, Leonie and Staff from Penhouse Design (down the road from the school) collaborating with Túsla to create some active learning ideas. Click on the picture to see the full page!
