Dropping Off/Collection Procedure
For their safety, children should be dropped at/collected from the school side of the road only. Please do not let your child exit/enter the car anywhere except in the designated area. At collection time, please do not beckon to your child to cross the road to you. All traffic must go around the roundabout in order to exit the school avenue. Please do not do a U-Turn on the school avenue.

Early Collections
If you are collecting your child early from school, you must come to the Main Office and sign your child out. Children are not allowed to leave the school building unaccompanied.

Science Club - Trip to IBM
"This Tuesday, some children from the Science Club went on tour to IBM. The children had a really good time and did the school proud. They learned a lot about electronics from the hosts John Wafer and Mike Kehoe. There were lots of interesting things there, like the "I" series and "Z" series, which are both very powerful servers and are worth up to €5million." - Aidan Doherty & Matthew Doyle
