A Thuisti,

Hope everyone had an enjoyable summer. The school was a buzz of excitement yesterday as parents/guardians dropped off their children to school after the summer holidays. Everyone looked eager and ready for the new school year. Our new Junior Infants settled in really well and are enjoying their new surroundings. For this week only the Junior Infants will be going home at 12 noon. From Monday September 5th the Junior Infants will be going home at 1.40p.m. We wish all the children and their families a safe and enjoyable year.

Book Rental

Thanks to Bridget Copeland who organised the Book Rental Scheme again this year. Please ensure the children take good care of the books as some of them will be used again next year.

The children got their Copies, Folders and ( Homework Journals 1st to 6th ). (Payment for copies etc will be collected next week).


We ask all parents/guardians to please put their child’s name on their Tracksuit Tops. If your child takes off their tracksuit top in the classroom or the playground it can easily get mislaid.

Parental Permission Form/Contact Form

We ask parents/guardians for their permission for their children to participate in certain activities. Please read the Parental Permission Form and tick the relevant boxes and return the forms in an envelope by Monday 5th September.

Please complete the Contact Form and return it to the office in an envelope by September 5th.

Your child will take home both forms today.

Administration of Medicines
