Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome Back! Here are a few reminders for the coming week.

Junior Infants: As we approach the end of our second week in school well done to all our Junior Infants who have settled into school life so quickly, and will continue attending from 9am – 12 o’clock next week 10th – 14th September.

Well done to parents and pupils with the line- up this week and please continue to stand at

the back of the yellow line , to allow children walk in/out safely with teacher. Encourage your child to tell teacher when they see their parent/minder at home time.

The full infant day (9am -1.40pm) will commence on Monday17th.

Parents of Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd classes please bring your child to their line and stand to the back of line and please do not enter at the front door in the morning.

School Books: There are still a very small number of pupils without some of their school books. These may be purchased from Castle Book Shop, Leixlip. We would appreciate if these books could be purchased as soon as possible, and all school fees (€95) settled by tomorrow Friday 7th.
