Access Arrangements
To minimise heat loss and for the safety and security of all the children, we are implementing a new system of access for children who arrive late for line-up in the morning.

  • 2nd 6th Class children will enter via the Diswellstown (Tigers) Door only.
  • Junior Infants 1st Class children will enter via the Main School Entrance only.

Icy Weather
During icy weather, cyclists should use the “New” Pedestrian Entrance as all gritting will be concentrated on this area and the coloured pathway around the building. Please dismount and walk through school grounds.

Choir resumes this Friday, 11 January.

Dropping in lunches, bags, homework etc.
It would be greatly appreciated that if you are dropping in any of your child’s forgotten belongings e.g. lunches, bags, homework, etc., that they are all clearly marked with your child’s name and the name of the class teacher.

Labelling/Lost Property
Please ensure all your children’s property (e.g. jumpers, tracksuit tops, coats, hats, scarves, lunchboxes, drinks bottles, etc) is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Staff Car Park
Please note that parents are asked not to park in the Staff Car Park between 8.00am and 2.30pm, the only exception being parents collecting disabled or injured children. We would be grateful if you could also inform anyone who may be collecting your child/children on your behalf of this procedure. If you are returning to the school to drop off forgotten lunches, schoolbags, etc. during the school day, we would ask that you park in the bus stop area and enter via the Pedestrian Gate. (Please close gates after you leave). We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
