Welcome to our website. On behalf of the children, teachers, Special Needs Assistants, ancillary staff, parents, friends and the Board of Management, I am delighted to greet you.

In the words of our Mission Statement “We commit ourselves to making our school a safe and enjoyable place of education. We are open to the challenges of the future, encouraging effective co-operation between pupils, parents, staff, management and the local community”.
My wish is that you will enjoy reading about our life in our school.

Sharron has been working with teachers, parents and children from 1st and 2nd Classes to help to improve comprehension and vocabulary skills. Parents who attended the first session also helped out in the classrooms with the first comprehension story in the Read and Think Booklets. The teachers, parents and children will be working on a story each week.
Here are some of the most important tips for your child to remember:
* You do not have to know ALL the words in the story to be able to answer the questions
* Read ALL the answers before choosing
* Look back at the story to find the answer: Look for the words in the question
Here are some of the most important tips for you to remember:
* From Story 3 encourage your child to do the reading and questions on his/her own
* Read over the story and questions together afterwards and talk about the answers your child chose
* Ask: Why did you pick that answer? Is there a better answer?

Thanks to Leah winning a colouring competition with Papa John’s pizza, all of 5th class got to visit their restaurant on O’Connell Street and learn how to make their own pizzas. We all had a fantastic day out. We got to roll the dough, shape it and add all our favouriyte toppings. Our pizzas were then cooked and given back to us to eat, they were the best pizzas we’ve ever tasted!
