Concert times – 9.45 and 12.15

This year our Christmas concert will be held in the school hall at 9.45 a.m. and 12.15 p.m. Both performances will feature all classes so it does not matter which one you attend. The performance is expected to last around 1 hour and 45 mins. We ask you to remain in the hall until all classes have performed. There is no charge for the concert but our ASD classes will be having a small raffle on the day for a beautiful Sam McCauleys chemist hamper.

We look forward to seeing you at what is always a very enjoyable day.

Important dates

The important dates page has been updated with the dates for Confirmation and Communion and with the school calendar for this year.

There is one day yet to be fixed which is a training day on the new language curriculum. Further information on this day will be given later in the year.

School Lunches

This year our school is delighted to again offer a piece of fruit and a snack to the children in cooperation with the Department of Social Protection.

This year we are working with our supplier Bradbury’s Irish School lunches and offering parents the opportunity to have their child’s lunch delivered to the school for €7 euro per week.

The lunch would include a sandwich or wrap, two snacks, a piece of fruit and a bottle of water. The items can be different on each day of the week.

Please see the images below giving details of the offer and a sample menu.


Gerry Creighton’s visit


Yesterday, I had a visit from Gerry Creighton, Operations Manager of DUBLIN ZOO. It was a shocking surprise for me . He gave me a DUBLIN ZOO hat,  DUBLIN ZOO magazines, DUBLIN ZOO DVDS  and he signed my elephant project book . He told us some facts about DUBLIN ZOO and the animals . It was the best day of my life!
