ESB Science Blast is a non-competitive initiative which aims to support the development of
core science and maths skills in primary school children. Children from both fourth classes really enjoyed participating in the project and are delighted to share their work via this wonderful presentation. You can read the judge's feedback form too reflecting the enthusiasm of all involved. Click on the links below Well done to all!
We celebrated Safer Internet Day on the 8th February. The children and teachers from 2nd to 6th all engaged in Webwise lessons and they created fabulous group posters to show their understanding of staying safe online. We hope you enjoy our video!
Please have a look at our welcome / enrolment video highlighting all the amenities and fantastic activities that take place in our school.
Our school's winning entry was by second class pupil Lucy O'Malley, featuring two children playing together with different abilities. Their differences don't stop them from being able to play together. Lucy is in Ms. Gallagher's class and they are all delighted with Lucy's win.

Children should not attend school if they have symptoms of Covid 19.
Symptom profiles are available here www2.hse.ie/conditions/covid19/symptoms/overview/ and parents are advised to take a precautionary approach, particularly for children less able to articulate their symptoms, that if a child appears unwell, observe them at home and contact their GP as appropriate.
Close contacts - If your child has been notified by HSE services that they are a close contact of a case of Covid-19, please adhere to the advice on the HSE website in relation to restricted movements and testing. Children under 13 years who are household close contacts must restrict their movements for 14 days and they are offered PCR testing at day 0 and day 10. On receipt of a day 10 not-detected PCR test result, they may exit restricted movements.
