All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in the courtyard. On the first days of school parents are welcome to bring the children into the classroom, take a moment and enjoy the milestone of your child starting school. Please do not stay too long. Let them get playing. The school will be sure to call you if there is any concern. They can be collected from this courtyard at home time. Children will be given to the parent/guardian one by one from the classroom door. Please stand back from the door to ensure teacher has a clear view.

  • Junior, Senior Infants and First Class will enter and exit school from “the courtyard” to the side of the building nearest the GAA club.
  • 2nd-6th Class – Will enter the school through the hall. Parents please do not enter the hall with your child. The hall will be full of children and very busy. Staff will be on hand to help children find their classmates and new teachers.
