Specific Arrangements For Parents Considering Sending Their Child To This School

Parents who may consider sending their child to the school are invited to make an appointment to visit the school and meet the Principal. On that occasion matters relating to enrolment and admission will be discussed. If desired, the parent may avail of the opportunity of placing their child’s name on the school mailing list.

The Arrangement of Classes

On entry to the school, children will be allocated a year group according to their date of birth. This will ensure to the best of our ability that every child will have the opportunity of spending seven years at primary school. Where resources permit, children will be enrolled in a class which is composed mainly of children who may be determined as being in the same academic or school year. It is envisaged that children will, in most instances, progress annually through the school in successive year groups.

School Hours and Holidays

The school day is as follows:

P1 – P3

9.00am – 12.00noon
12.50pm – 2.00pm

P4 – P7

9.00am – 12.40pm
1.25pm – 3.00pm

School holidays will be issued in advance of the new school year and will include the school’s own optional closures. During the course of the year additional closures relating to Teacher Training arrangements will be issued as they become known.
