The school is moving towards being a digital school. We have registered for Digital school status which will mean we are positioned to provide the highest standard in Information Technology experience. With the help of a volunteer father who gives most generously of his time we have made great progress. The updating of equipment is essential and we have no budgetary allocation for it. We are therefore asking parents to make a further contribution of €10 per child (included above) towards the updating and replacement of equipment such as Interactive Board bulbs, tablets (of the computer kind!) and software licences (for example the Mathletics licence for 400 users which children got a lot of use and benefit from cost the school €2,354 this year).

All children should have all their books by September 1st.
Please label your child’s clothing and all other belongings.
Tracksuits are available in Kidstuff, Main Street, Newbridge and the Back to School Store, Cutlery Road.
For September there is a special arrangement for Junior Infants.

Your child will attend school on either Monday 1st September or Tuesday 2nd September. They will all attend from Wednesday 3rd September.
The Junior Infants will finish everyday at 12.00 up to and including Friday 19th September 2014.

School Tour – Stonebrook Farm

We had a fantastic time on our school tour to Stonebrook Farm. We had an exciting start to the day  travelling to the farm on a double decker bus – we sat on the top deck!! :) We saw lots of different animals and got to hold and feed some of them too. We went on a tractor ride around the farm and had lots of fun in the play area. Even though it was a very rainy day, we didn’t let that stop us having fun! Have a look at our photos below.
