Health and Safety

We are currently reviewing our Health & Safety policy. If your child has a medical condition of which the school needs to be made aware, please inform us as soon as possible. Parents have advised us of medical conditions on enrolment. However, if there is any change in your child’s medical condition or if a condition has recently been diagnosed, the school needs to be made aware of this.  

Access Control System

In the event of a Late Arrival for school parents will be required to bring their child to the main front door, ring for access and sign their child in.  


Ms Patricia Griffin will train the children for cross-country athletics every Monday from 18th September to 23rd October from 3.00- 3.40. Next Monday 18th September the photographer will be in the school to take photos and children will be in full uniform. Children can bring in a bag their running gear and runners for training and will be given time to change into this gear at 3.00pm. Children will participate in a competition on Wednesday 25th October. More details of the competition will follow at a later date. Please ensure that your child is collected on time after the training.

Gaelic Football for Boys

There will be Gaelic football training with Mr Nick O’Brien in Harty Park on Thursday 21st September from 3.10-3.55 p.m. Boys from 4th, 5th and 6th classes may attend. Each boy should have Gaelic football gear, football boots, a gum-shield and a drink of water. Please sign and return the permission slip if you would like your child to attend.

Gaelic Football for Girls

Gaelic football training for girls from 3rd class to 6th class will begin on Thursday the 21st of September. Mr. Dónal Neville will take the girls for training after school. All girls will get changed into their gear in school and can then make their way down to the pitch. Training will begin at 3.10 and will finish at 3.55 at which time the girls can be collected from the pitch. Please sign and return the permission slip if you would like your child to attend.

Please note all girls must have appropriate training gear- boots, gum shield, socks, jersey/t-shirt, shorts/ tracksuit pants. This is most important as ground conditions deteriorate over the coming weeks.

Lost and Found

Many items of uniform remain unclaimed since the last school year. Please check if you are missing any item as any unclaimed items will be disposed of by the end of September.  

Le gach dea ghuí,

Marie Griffin (Principal)
