New Entrants- September 2024

June 2024

Hello to everyone joining us in September,

Each child has reached a very important milestone in their lives. Our team understand the importance of a successful transition from pre-school to the primary classroom.

Healthy home school links are the cornerstone of our school’s success. Parents and teachers must work closely together for children to reach their full potential.

We want to know your child’s story/scéal…

We have created a short parent questionnaire to give you the chance to share any information you think will be important to set your child up for success in Ard Rí. If you have not completed this already please click on the link below. The information you share will allow us to best support your child from day one.

  • We source all our books centrally from a local supplier. They deliver our books straight to the school. Books will be covered, labelled and stored in the class. This year, for the first time, the government has introduced a free schoolbooks scheme for children in Primary Schools. There will still be some direct costs for parents for expenses not covered by the scheme. When the details of these costs are finalised we will send you a link to make an online payment through App- Way2Pay.

Places for Junior Infants 2024 are now full. If for any reason your child will not be joining us for September please pick up the phone and let us know immediately so we can release the place to other children on our waiting list.

We will be back in touch shortly with more information. If you have any questions please get in touch. You can give us a call on 087 1341007 or drop an email to [email protected].
