Dear parents, carers, staff and friends,



News this week

It’s been a super busy week at school, but one full of joy and sparkle! On Sunday, families of our Junior and Senior Infants and 1st and 2nd Class choir joined us at St. Joseph’s Church, Berkeley Road for the annual Parish Carol Service. The children sang beautifully. And a special thank you to Kevin and Thaneshree who stepped in at the last minute to read the Christmas story clearly and confidently.


On Tuesday, five of our older classes went to see a play in Marino College.


On Wednesday, 1st and 2nd Class went see a performance of ‘Tracks in the Snow’ at the Ark Cultural Centre.


Thank You

At this time of year it is important to say thank you to all those who have helped and supported us this term.


Thanks to our staff – they are an amazing team, so full of energy and enthusiasm for what they do. Our children are so lucky to have such exciting learning opportunities planned for them each and every day. We wish you all a very happy holiday and hope you get lots of rest!


To our parents and carers – your support each day allows us to do our jobs to the very best of our ability. We couldn’t do it without you! Thank you for the gifts and kind words you have shared with us this week. It means so much.


To our Board of Management, our volunteers, our fellow professionals – thank you for giving us your time and commitment.
