A Ten-Year Thank You

Posted by James Mernin.

I am delighted to note that, exactly 10 years ago today (on Monday, 20 April 2009), this website was formally launched.

Our school community has seen a huge amount of (positive) change in that short decade but the one thing that has not changed is the school’s unwavering commitment to our children’s education, delivered with a healthy blend of fun along the way!

It’s also worth revisiting the original goals of the website, as set out at the time, which were to:

  • Serve as a valuable online resource for those connected with the school, providing useful information to pupils, parents and staff alike;
  • Provide a more effective means of communicating school issues to parents and to the wider school community;
  • Promote the campaign for a Permanent School Building which had been on-going for over 24 years;
  • Increase the profile of the school both locally and nationwide;

Not only has the website delivered on all 4 of the original goals, but one of them is no longer required at all (to our great relief), and so we can now look forward to focusing our efforts on delivering the other three instead.

Thank you for being a part of this journey and a part of the school’s history for several decades to come!

Costas Leabhair ar Cíos

Posted by James Mernin.

Tá an Bord Bainistiochta ag ardú taillií na leabar ar cíos i mbliana le costaisí na leabhar a úsáideann na ndalta a chlúdach. Ainneoin ardú na bliana seo caite ní raibh an caiteachas ar leabhair, fótacóipeál, ealaín agus ceirdíocht clúdaithe. Tá an scoil ag caitheamh i bhfad níos mó airgid ar ábhar léitheoireachta ag dul leis an curaclam teanga nua agus leanfaidh an t-éileamh ar seo go leanúnach. Chuige sin seo leanas na táilli aontaithe ag an mBord.

  • Páiste amháin: €140


  • Beirt pháiste sa chlann: €270 (€140 + €130)


  • Triúr phaiste sa chlann: €390 (€140 + €130 + €120)


Táan €30 don ealaín agus €20 don fotocóipeáil/achmhainnísan áireamh sa phraghas seo (€50). Is feidir libh na táillía íoc de réir a chéile san oifig.

Má theastaíonn uait do leabhair féin a cheannach, cur in iúl don oifig é chomh luath agus is féidir, ionas go mbeidh an méid leabhair atá le hordú againn i gceart. Má tá tú chun na leabhair a cheannach caithfidh tú na táillí don ealaín €30 agus €20 don fótócópáil / acmhainní a íoc áfach. Nuair atá sé seo íocta agat cuirfimid an liosta leabhar chugat i Mí Bealtaine. Tá sé an-thábhachtach go mbeidh na táillí seo íocta mar beidh an t-airgead sin roinnte idir gach rang chun trealaimh ealaíne a cheannach don bhliain.

Má tá ceist ar bith agaibh, is féidir teagmháil a dhéanamh leis an oifig.

Posted by James Mernin.

Bhailigh daltaí Rang 6 boscaí bróg ar son Team Hope. ‘D’iarramar ar gach duine bosca bróg a thabhairt isteach lán le rudaí deasa mar mhilseáin agus éadaí,’ arsa Niamh Ní Dhálaigh. Chuaigh na boscaí go dtí áiteanna mar an Rómáin agus an Afraic. Tháinig duine ó Team Hope an tseachtain seo caite le 134 bosca a bhailiú agus a thabhairt go dtí an bád,’ a deir Aimí Ní Chonchubhair. Anuas ar sin bhí díolachán císte agus leabhair sa scoil agus carnadh €800.

Go raibh maith agaibh.
