On Friday, children are welcome to come to school dressed up. All classes will have a small Halloween party. Children may bring in one small treat for themselves to eat at the party. 

Please bring schoolbags as usual, as the parties will begin at approx 11:30am. 

Each year, the younger children become distressed when they lose some part of their Halloween costume. If possible, please keep the costume simple to avoid loss of parts.

Dear Parents, 

We have been listening to the older children and their feelings of being burdened and stressed by fitting in homework with their after school activities and everyday lives. One boy said that having been learning for five and a half hours, he goes to his rugby practice and then remembers he has yet more learning to do. A number of schools are piloting a reduced/no homework policy and we feel that it is now appropriate to trial the same. 

Starting from Monday 22nd October, children from 2nd-6th will only complete four tasks each night from Monday to Thursday. 

  • One Work it Out exercise
  • One Spellbound exercise
  • One Realta Litriu exercise or some Irish Reading
  • Maths Tables

No other formal homework will be assigned. 

Junior Infant – First Class homework will remain as is for the moment. 

Project Work no longer be done at home as a number of children do not have access to WiFi, Printers or Computers. 

This is a trial that will run until the Christmas Holidays.
