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”.

Recycled materials were once again gathered and used to create amazing hats, fascinators and dickie bows. Some classes invited parents to come in and help the children. The atmosphere in the hall was electric with happy children everywhere. Ms. Murphy and Ms. Whelan had visited the classes and picked the best recycled works of art. They both announced the winners and presented prizes of chocolate Easter Bunnies. Bhí áthas an domhain orainn (We were delighted.).
Today, 7th April 2017, is the first day of our Easter holidays. We have been so busy the last week! On Tuesday we had a visit from the Sam Maguire Cup. We made sure to wave our Dublin flags and banners proudly. Later on in the week we took part in the Spring Clean as part of Green Schools Award Programme. We went out around the local area picking up litter and making the place look beautiful. As well as that, we had our Easter Hat Competition. We had great fun working on our hats and dickie bows and making them as creative as possible. We also enjoyed a trip to the GPO museum where we learned even more about the Easter Rising of 1916.
After all this, we deserve a break! Happy Easter everybody!
