Christmas Arrangements

Dear Parents/Guardians

As always, December is a busy time of the year at school. Please see below for important dates and times.


Christmas Concerts

The boys are working in class groups and will do a little show in the School Hall. You are invited to come to see your son on the stage at the times listed below. Each show will last approx. 20 – 30 minutes. The boys will be allowed to go home after their performance if you wish to take them. Please allow them to return to their classroom and you can collect them from there.

Tuesday 18th December         12.30pm – Junior Infants 

                                                         1.45pm – First Class

Wednesday 19th December    12.45pm – Senior Infants (including Ms Hartnett’s ASD Class)


Christmas Charity Collections

We all know that this time of year can put a lot of demands on families so we try to do our bit to ease the burden. This year we have two ways to help those in need. We are collecting non-perishable food and toiletries for Crosscare. Please send any donations in to the class teacher before Monday 17th December. We are also going to hold a Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 20th December. The boys may wear their festive jumpers and bring in a suggested donation of €2. All money raised will be donated to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. We will also leave donation boxes in the hall on the days of the concerts for anyone who wishes to donate then. Thank you in advance for all donations.


Special Visitor

A little bird has informed me that we may have a very special visitor to our school on Thursday 20th December. Hopefully, he (or she!) will catch everyone being good!

Kind Regards

Clodagh Farrell


The Late Late Toy Show

We know lots of the boys will be staying up late tonight watching The Late Late Toy Show. Keep an eye for The Raw Rascals, a dance group featuring some of our past pupils! Best of luck to Alex, Bobby, Ethan, Djay and Jamie!

Reminder: The school photographer, County Photos, will visit our school tomorrow, Wednesday 17th October.

The photographer will take individual photos of the boys along with class photos of the Junior Infant classes. If you would like your son to have his photo taken with his siblings in our school, the Senior Boys’ School or the Girls’ School, please let us know. Please state the children’s full names and classes. You can send us an email or send a note into the office tomorrow morning.

Parents’ Association AGM

Reminder: The Parents’ Association AGM will take place this Thursday, 18th October at 8pm in the Parish Centre.

We would encourage as many parents as possible to attend. The PA play a vital role in our school and help provide the extra activities, workshops, shows and events that would otherwise not be possible. We look forward to seeing you there.
