As the end of term approaches, please note the following:

There will no school tomorrow (Friday, 7th June), due to polling in the school.

Class teachers are currently preparing End-of-Year Reports and we will post them next week. Please forward a stamped Self Addresses Envelope to the school by Monday (one per family will suffice) to facilitate the ease of this process.

School Tours are currently underway and class teachers will inform you of specific arrangements.

The Senior Sports Day is pencilled in for Tuesday 11th next, weather permitting. We hope to hold the Junior Sports on 18 June, weather permitting, details to follow. This will coincide with an Active Week in the school.

We hope to raise our newly attained Green Flag (Global Citizenship, Litter and Waste) next Monday, 10th June at 10am. Anne O’Donnell, retired secretary, will raise the flag.

The Parents Association will hold their final meeting of the year on Wednesday, 12th at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend. We wish to acknowledge the huge contribution of the PA over the past year, noting events such as the Halloween Table Quiz, Movie Night, Silver Circle draw, the Tractor Run, Valentine Bake Day etc and sincerely thank them for this.

There will be an end of year Mass for Sixth Class pupils and their parents in the Chapel on the morning of Tuesday, 18th June. We wish all our Sixth Class well in their future endeavours. Classes for all remaining standards will close for the Summer Holidays at 12 noon on Friday 21st June.

A group of our students will participate in the Ruáille Buaille show on Highland Radio on Wednesday 19th June at 7pm. Feel free to tune in.

The school will once again provide books/ copybooks under the Free Book Scheme. Unfortunately, the effect of the recent reduction of €16 per pupil this year will impact our funding by about €3,800. This is huge and will impact the range of books in future years.

We respectfully request a fee of €25 per pupil/ €40 per family for photocopying, art materials, First Aid supplies and much.

Again, as there is a waiting list for some classes, please inform the School Office immediately if your child/children are not returning to us after the Summer recess. If the Office is unattended, please email any information to and we will revert to you as soon as possible.

Our extension project is progressing well and we are hopeful of being able to move in at the start of term. However, the timetable and schedule is really tight and we cannot guarantee that this will happen. We will not be in a position to make this call (and the location of several of the class groups) until later this summer so I ask for your patience and support in this regard. It is however quite exciting that this project is coming to fruition and will be of huge benefit to the school.
