SCHOOL REOPENING MONDAY 12TH APRIL

All parents were emailed with the Return to School Form, which must be completed and emailed to the class email addresses (available in the principal's message) within three days of the school reopening. If a parent, the pupil/s, or family members are unwell, please err on the side of caution and don't send your son to school, until you are sure it is safe to do so. Many thanks.

6TH CLASS YEARBOOK

Posted on 2021-03-07 23:03:05

For the past number of years, our Parents' Association, in conjunction with 6th Class teachers, have arranged to have a magnificent Yearbook, for all of our 6th Class Graduates. This week, teachers and parents are getting the preparations underway, with the boys filling out a questionnaire this week and asked to send in three photos each, by Friday 12th March, through Google Classroom. Please see email, sent to all 6th Class parents, with further details.

FIRST COMMUNION & CONFIRMATION 2021

Posted on 2021-03-01 16:50:35

Our parents in 2nd Classes & 6th Classes were sent an email about Communion & Confirmation (2021) today, as well as letters from the Bishop of Cork. We hope to be able to arrange dates, as soon as we can but cannot do so until there is more certainty. What we didn't want to do was to announce dates that may need to be changed, leading to upset and disappointment for families. We will look forward to these happy occasions, in the near future, & will give you the dates, as soon as we get the go ahead.
