Keeping Our School Open

We would like to express a huge thank you all for your continued adherence and diligence towards the new necessary school procedures!! The children have been truly amazing with how quickly they have adapted. Unfortunately, cases have risen significantly both nationally and locally in recent weeks. 

Below are a few documents to keep you updated on COVID -19, we are currently working on our remote learning policy and we will upload it here when ratified by the BOM at our next meeting. 


Inspectors Visit

On the 5th of November our Department Inspector visited our school to advise on the implementation of the guidelines issued by the Department of Education. This visit provided assurance to the public that our school is a safe working and learning
environment for all while keeping inline with the Departments commitments under Circular 40/2020 (P) and
41/2020 (PP). 

The visit was a very positive experience for all and we are glad to say that the school has taken all the necessary steps to provide a safe working and learning environment for us all.

Covid - 19 Information


Dear Parents,

We have set up this page to help your children while the school is closed. 

Our aim is to give a few ideas/suggestions that may make things easier on your child/children to help give them some structure and routine during the school closure. I know from personal experience how hard it is to keep children occupied at the moment now that school and afterschool activities have been cancelled!!!

Please Note that your child is not obliged to cover all this material. We certainly do not wish to put any pressure on any child to complete this work. These are simply suggestions to help and can be altered to suit your family. We all know that families are very busy minding children, grandparents and getting used to these abrupt and uncertain times we are in. So please don't put you or you child under any unnecessary stress to complete all academic work. Puzzles, lego, art activities, building forts, baking getting outside and sports are also excellent ways of getting through this tough time.

Top Tip!!

We know how hard it is to print sheets for your child/children so a copy might come in handy

1st - 6th - A copy for writing activities - Remember how we rule it correctly

1st - 6th - A copy for maths activities - remember how we rule it correctly

If you don't have a printer - maybe ask your older children draw up a schedule...

Upload images of your childrens work on the facebook page. Unfortunately your children cannot see their friends at the moment but this might be a nice way that they can share their creations with each other. We would also love to see any puzzles, art work or project work that your children are doing while school is closed..
