On Wednesday 24th June 2020, we said ‘Goodbye’ to our wonderful 6th class. The sun shone and car horns blared as we clapped them through a lengthy guard of honour of teachers and extended family on their final drive out the school gates. It was a very special evening and they will be sorely missed. Congratulations, class of 2020!
What great pupils we have in this school and how we have missed them this year! A school is not a school without them and we want to see them all in the new school year. We were so badly disrupted; what a happy time it will be when they can return and we can pick up where we left off. We look forward to the day.

We await detailed guidance from the Department of Education & Skills. We are planning for a situation where all pupils will return to school on Thursday, 27th August. More detailed arrangements will follow and will be communicated to you as soon as possible.
End of Year
As we end this extraordinary year I would like to thank all those who help to keep the school running so well, including those who volunteer their time and efforts in many ways, members of the Board of Management and the Parents Association. I especially want to thank the staff for their hard work and for all the dedication and the exceptional care and attention that they give to your children. Most of all this year I want to thank you the parents; not only for your loyal and enthusiastic support of the school but for your efforts in trying to keep your children on track in very demanding circumstances. Take a bow! I dearly wish that during the summer you can find some time for yourselves to rest and relax.
The final word goes to our 6th Class. They lost so much this year but they will grow stronger from the experience. We did the best we could for them last Wednesday in a strangely rewarding drive-in graduation ceremony on a beautiful evening. It was great even though we all knew it wasn’t the same as the real thing. I think every one of them deserves their name to be mentioned:
Ciara, Andrea, Kaycee, Hannah, Emily, Anna, Megan, Grace, Caitlin, Jenna, Molly, Ailbhe, Caitlin, Ali, Abbie, Simon, Oisín, James, Cian, Jack, Conor, Jake, Fionn, Colm, Dylan, James, Josh, Odhran, Jack, Robbie, Dean, Colum, Samuel, Eoin, Niall, Dean and Shane.
God bless them all.
