In brief:

  • The school is obliged to keep accurate attendance records for each pupil and an explanation for each absence must be provided by parent / guardian on the App. Parents/Guardians are requested to send a message via the app if the student is going to be late or absent. If leaving school early an app message must be received prior to 9 a.m., after 9 a.m., in the case of an emergency, the school office must be called explaining the reason to leave. A communication is sent from the school if your child is marked absent at roll call when no explanatory message is received.
  • Appropriate clothes should be worn to school (see Dress Code).
  • Appropriate clothing is also required for PE – Note CONVERSE runners are not suitable footwear for PE.
  • The school accepts no liability for loss of such items as coats, bicycles, watches, mobile phones, etc and parents/guardians are advised that it is possible to obtain insurance cover for the same by a personal effects extension to the householder’s policy. Parents/guardians are advised not to allow pupils to bring large sums of money or other valuables to school.
  • When teachers are unavoidably absent through illness, every effort is made to arrange for substitution, and occasionally the timetable has to be adjusted. When this is not possible, it is sometimes arranged for the senior cycle pupils to be sent home early.
  • All pupils must vacate the school premises within 15 minutes of the end of classes unless involved in school activities.


Parent’s Association

The Parents’ Association is very active and provides support essential to the continuation and development of the schools policies, practices and extra-curricular programme. The school encourages all parents to join the Parents’ Association and get involved!


The Sports Council

The focus of the council is the organisation and funding of sport in the school. Students, staff and parents participate in this vibrant and important group. New members are always welcome.
