Welcome to Our Website !
At the request of the Minister for Education, Ruairi Quinn the views of parents in our school were sought with regard to the whole area of school uniforms. Questionnaires were sent home and when opinions were collated results were communicated to parents. The majority view of parents and guardians in our school was that the uniform in its present state should remain unchanged.
On Wednesday April 30th photographer Donal O'Donovan will take individual/family and class photographs of children in Junior Infants and 6th class only.
Congratulations to our 8 pupils who have been deemed eligible to participate in CTY Ireland Programmes following recent assessments at the Centre for Talented Youth held at UCC. The assessments used are specifically designed to determine high academic potential. They are now eligible to participate in courses designed by Dublin City University based at UCC campus until they reach the end of 6th class. This is a great achievement and we congratulate teachers, parents and pupils.
