 Dear Parents/Guardians,

Congratulations to 6th class who received Confirmation last Saturday.

Best wishes to 2nd class who will receive First Communion on May 16th.

4th Class Music Generation Concert will take place in the George Bernard Shaw on Thursday 30th.  This will be a good opportunity for the girls to show off their hard work on their recorders.


Fire Safety

As you will no doubt have heard from the girls, the school underwent a fire safety upgrade during the Easter break.  Fire doors and extra alarms have been fitted.  This was financed by a grant from the DES.


Standardised Tests

Each class will administer tests during a 2 week block in May.


11th – 22nd May:          3rd & 6th classes

18th – 29th May:           1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th  classes


We ask that all pupils be in school, get lots of fresh air and sleep so as to perform to their best ability.


School will be closed for the week June 1st – 5th.




Congratulations to Ava Doyle, Grace Maher and Rachel Farrell on wining prizes in the Art Competition in the Parish Magazine.

Again, headlice are posing a problem.  I ask each one of you to please check your daughter’s hair and treat her immediately if infected.  Also, your child’s hair must be tied up/back at all times.

Book Bills

Like last year books for the coming year will be ordered only for those who have paid in advance.  I would urge you to consider paying in instalments between now and the holidays if you think you won’t be able to pay the full amount when the bills are given out in June.


School Database

Please inform Fiona if at any stage you change your address or telephone number.  This is very important in case of emergency; also, to ensure you are getting text updates.


School Uniform

Please ensure that your child wears the proper school uniform.

P.E. Uniform is for P.E. days only.
