Football News
Our boys will play in this year’s Cumann na mBunscol Roinn 2 final against Clonaghadoo. The match will be this Thursday 24th in O’Moore Park with throw-in at 2:30. The football panel will travel to the match by bus. Because we’ll be treating them to refreshments afterwards, they won’t return to the school until approximately 5 – 5:30 p.m. If you wish to travel separately or collect children early on the day from the school you’re welcome to come and support us. It would be convenient if you could collect children at 1:15. There is usually an admission charge for adults on the day. If you wish to bring a child from school, please let the teacher know in advance. The boys have played really well this year whatever the result, though naturally we’d like to finish with a win. Go n-éirí libh a bhuachaillí!

Drop Off Zone
Please remember that this area in the mornings is only designed for you to drop and go. If you need to get out of your car at all or if you need to wait for any reason, please use the designated parking spaces. Thank you very much for your cooperation.

Halloween Hike
As in previous years we will be dressing up for Halloween, this year on the morning of Friday October 25th.  This year we will be ‘hiking’ from the school down to the old school and back. If the weather is bad we will do it indoors as in previous years. You should have received a sponsorship card and we would be very grateful for your support as always.

School will be closed on Wednesday this week for teacher inservice in Portlaoise and school will close at the usual times on Friday for the Halloween break.
