New Entrants- September 2021


Just one more sleep!!

We are very excited to welcome all our Junior Infants to school tomorrow morning at 10am. We have been very busy getting ready and the place is looking great.

Children wear their formal uniform for the first few days. Teacher will let you know tracksuit days for next week. It is going to be a sunny day so navy shorts and jumper off is not a problem- be comfy! Pack a small healthy lunch and a drink of water. Park in the car park and walk up the avenue. It will be difficult to ensure social distance so parents please wear a mask. We will divide the children into their two class groupings and families will meet Múinteoir Karen and Múinteoir Eimear in the yard. This might take a few minutes so please be patient. Children will then say good bye and walk to class.

Unfortunately we cannot let parents in to the classrooms. We will make a video of the children’s first day at big school and share it with you as soon as we can.

Darragh will meet all parents in the carpark after drop off for a quick chat and to answer any questions.
