Retirement of Caitlín and Mary Dunphy

The school gathered on Friday, 30 September 2022, to mark the retirement of Múinteoir Caitlín and to pay tribute to Múinteoir Máire Uí Dhonncha. Both teachers have given long and loyal service, over many decades, to the school and its pupils. All of the children held both teachers in the highest esteem and this was reflected in the song that Dara, our fifth-class teacher, composed for the occasion. The song was sung with great enthusiasm by all in the hall.

Virtual Classroom Updates

The school has decided to minimise as much as is possible the amount of books and copybooks that have to be brought home from school during the 2021-2022 school year. To this end, we will continue to use Padlet, Seesaw and Edmodo to help with homework. Therein, parents can submit work on behalf of their children and can make contact with each teacher if required also. Full details on the virtual classroom page for each class can be found on

Homework Collaboration
