National Parents Week 2017 is from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th September. During National Parents Week we want to make parents aware that Parentline is there for them when they need support, information and guidance.
The theme for National Parents Week is: It’s OK to Ask! We want to encourage parents to look for support whenever they need it.
Parentline is a helpline for parents. Somewhere to pick up the phone and talk to somebody who can offer a sympathetic ear; in confidence and who won’t judge (either parent or child). Sometimes it’s only a little niggle, or it might be something bigger. Parentline’s trained facilitators will give support, information and guidance.
The helpline is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. and Friday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. It is free and no appointment is necessary – just call 1890 927277 or 01 8733500
Whatever the issue – It’s OK to Ask!

We hope you’re all enjoying your summer break! Following recruitment over the summer period we’re delighted to welcome back teachers Anna Mulvin and Gráinne Bannon who will be teaching the 3rd class groups and teacher Mark Malocca who will teach the 5th/6th class group. We’re very pleased to welcome new teachers Sarah Flynn who will join teacher Elaine teaching the 4th classes and Eliza Matthews who will be teaching 6th class. Please see the attached document for the full line-up of class teachers for 2017-18 and we look forward to seeing you all return for the new school year on Thursday August 31st!
This year’s summer camp was a great success if the photos are anything to go by. The three groups were involved in wide ranging activities such as pebble-art, dance, t-shirt making, science experiments, circus skills, were thrilled to see and hold the birds of prey and were visited by Woolly Wards Farm. The parents who volunteered their time and effort all week hardly had time to catch their breath! Well done everyone on yet another successful and popular camp.
Our latest green flag for water conservation was raised aloft today by Maya-Rose as the curtain came down on another school year. Have a safe and sunny (hopefully) summer everyone and we will see you all at the end of August for the start of what will be our tenth year! Take care.
We are pleased to announce the 2017/18 class allocations as per the attached document. Please also note that in cases of teachers ‘to be recruited’, updates will be posted here and linked to social media over the summer when details are finalised.
