NPC Special Education Conference

Reminders

Junior Infants September 2016

Application Forms for Junior Infants September 2016 (Yellow Form for siblings) are available for collection from the main office from Wednesday 16 September.  Registration will take place on 12, 13 and 14 October. Please note that parents of siblings can drop their application forms into the main office at any time during 12, 13 and 14 October.  It is not necessary for you to attend the formal sessions.  Please also note that sibling applications do not require proof of residence documents e.g. utility bills.  

ePayment System 

As you are aware, we have an ePayment System here in St Patrick's and we therefore no longer wish to accept cashThis new method allows parents to pay through a very secure system, using your ATM/Debit/Credit card. It will cancel out the need for writing cheques and sourcing exact amounts for payments, etc. It will also automatically enter the record of the payment against your child's entry on our school database. An email is sent to parents with all outstanding payments automatically listed. You will also receive an email receipt which will contain details of the transaction and a reference number. Please quote this reference number in any queries you may have as regards this payment with the school.   We are confident that the system will benefit both parents and the school in monitoring and recording payments.

Extras Fee 2015/2016 

(e.g. Book Rental/Photocopying/Pupil Insurance/IT/Stationery/Visual Art)

Thank you to everyone who already paid their Extras Fee for the 2015/2016 School Year. If you have not yet paid the fee (€65 per child), an email has been sent to you with the link to our method of payment. This is our preferred method of Payment for this and all future school payments.

Junior Infant Parents should note that your fees for this school year were paid on return of your Acceptance Form last November.
