The Board of Management and the Parents’ Association regard security at Greenlanes NS to be of utmost importance.

Following a recent incident where a bike was stolen from the school premises a review of the school’s security arrangements was undertaken in the interests of all pupils, staff and parents.

This has resulted in expenditure of €3,440.44 being incurred on improved intercom, access / exit control pads at gates and at the school itself, new locks and gate repairs, all outside of the school’s operating budget.

As an additional measure bicycle racks were relocated to the rear of the school building.

The Board of Management and the Parents’ Association have decided to launch a special appeal to parents to cover this unforeseen expenditure. 

All donations, irrespective of size will be gratefully received. Parents can donate online by funds transfer into account: Bank of Ireland Killester , BIC: BOFIIE2D, IBAN:  IE22 BOFI 9005 9437 8289 44.  Please add the reference: "Security fund-raiser".  Alternatively, parents can put money into a bucket to be left in Ms Atkin's office from tomorrow.

This is a one-off special request and is outside of other fundraising efforts that are being undertaken by the Parents’ Association for science equipment.

We would like to clarify that the school’s insurance does not cover personal property taken in to school.

Site-Logo.gifDear Parents, 

A case of threadworms has been reported in the school. For further information please click here. 

The HSE has devised a Threadworm Information Leaflet. This is available here. 

The Health Protection Surveillance Centre advises that children should still go to school if they have a threadworm infection. 

The school will follow good hygiene practices to limit the spread of infection. This will include cleaning toys and equipment and encouraging children to wash their hands regularly.

The Dublin & Glendalough Diocesan Kid’s Camp 2018 runs from July 2 to 6 in the Glencree Centre for Peace and Reconciliation, County Wicklow.

The theme of this year’s camp is ‘Living Adventure, Living Faith’. The kids will explore a range of questions: What is the foundation of our lives as Christians? How do we deal the with highs and lows, the exciting times and the challenges we experience in life?

Throughout the week participants will look at some stories of faith from the Bible and will explore what living our faith means in our own lives. They will explore this theme through daily worship and small group chats and there will be plenty of time for games and activities in the beautiful setting of Glencree.

Booking is now open and places are limited.

The cost is €170. Some bursaries are available for families in need. Please contact the Revd Abigail Sines, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
