GLASHEEN BOYS' SCHOOL

INDUCTION FOR NEW JUNIOR INFANTS 2022

Posted on 2022-05-19 12:03:33

Parents of incoming Junior Infants have been contacted this week about visiting the school in the coming weeks. We are conscious that we want to keep gatherings small, so we are arranging smaller groups, so we can get to meet our new boys properly and give them time. Some are coming in small groups or even individually.
