CHRISTMAS CLOSING TIMES 2023

School will close for Christmas Holidays on Friday December 22nd at 12pm. We will be staggering collection times to ease congestion on School Avenue.

Junior and Senior Infants will leave at 11:40am.

First and Second Classes will leave at 11:50am.

Third to Sixth Classes will leave at 12:00pm.

On Friday, we will allow older siblings to leave with their younger brothers at their earlier collection time to save parents having to wait unnecessarily. For example… if a pupil in 5th class has a younger brother in Junior Infants he will be allowed to leave at 11:40 with his younger brother, rather than wait until 12pm. Hopefully this will further ease congestion, free up parking spaces and save time for parents.

School will reopen on Monday 8th January at 8:30am. We hope you all have a Happy Christmas!
