Covid – 19

We would like to sincerely thank you for continuing to adhere to the Covid 19 protocols for our schools. We appreciate your ongoing support in keeping children home from school when they are sick, thank you. Please note that if your child has been absent you must complete the return to school declaration prior to your child returning to school. These are checked by the school every morning. We will continue to work together to ensure we keep our students, staff and community safe during this time. We would ask that you continue to follow government guidelines and not to arrange playdates during the Easter break.

School Calendar

After consultation with the school staff we have decided to not take a full week at the beginning of June. We would like to give as much time as we can to teaching and learning without interruption. The school will close on Monday the 7th and Tuesday the 8th of June only and on Friday the 25th of June for the summer holidays.

Amber Flag

A big thank you to Ms Butler and six class who had the opportunity of raising the Amber Flag after a long wait. Congratulations to all.

TLC

We were delighted to take part in the Team Limerick Clean Up this year. 3rd to 6th class pupils and teachers took to the roads around our community on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th and have done an excellent job. Well done to all and thank you to Mr. Gilbourne for organising this.

Fundraiser

Our school has been asked to help fundraise on behalf of a young boy Marek who is battling Lymphocytic Leukemia. The foundation to which he belongs have offered to collect bottle caps which he exchanges for money to buy much needed medicine. We are asking all our pupils to help collect as many bottle caps as you can. We will have a prize for the class that collects the most so get collecting!!!!

Reopening

School will reopen on Monday 12th April.

On behalf of all the staff I would like to wish you a safe and happy Easter.
