On Thursday next, 1 September 2016, the new school will open for pupils and staff at 9:00am. It will be a normal day but Junior Infants will finish at 12pm.
As building work continues on the site access will be somewhat restricted. Those who can should please walk or cycle to school. Pupils will assemble as usual in the yard from 8:45. New junior infants can be brought directly to their class. It is important that parents dropping children do not delay. We cannot provide parking in the school grounds therefore drop off only.
An open night for the whole school community will be held on Wednesday, 7 September 2016 at 6pm when people can tour the building with the Parents Association. Looking forward to seeing you all.

The new school is almost ready. Cleaners are in at the moment and we hope to have the office open by the 29th of August 2016. The last of the prefabs will be removed in September. Children will have a temporary play area initially while work is being completed on the yard areas.
Here are some photos of the school in the meantime.
A gathering of parents and friends of the school this afternoon moved the school furniture, books, IT equipment up to the new school’s library for storage. Our thanks to all who helped on today.
