First day Wednesday 30th August 2023 and start times

We look forward to welcoming everyone to school on Wednesday 30th August 2023.
During Covid 19 restrictions we introduced staggered start & finish times. Consultation with the school community in June 2023 showed a preference for continuing staggered arrivals and departures. We would appreciate if you let after-school clubs, childminders and grandparents know of start and finish times.

8:25am Senior Infants, 2nd , 4th & 6th
8:30am Junior Infants, 1st, 3rd, & 5th

1:05pm Hometime for Senior Infants
1:10pm Hometime for Junior Infants from Wednesday 6th September 2023*

*Junior Infants have early hometime of 12:00 midday for one week from Wednesday 30th August to Tuesday 5th September 2023.

2:05pm Hometime for 2nd, 4th & 6th
2:10pm Hometime for 1st, 3rd & 5th

We are fortunate to be part of a cooperative school community enabling safe access to school through the 5 minute staggered start times. Thanks for supporting us in facilitating:

  • Calm and safe entry to yard and school building for children
  • Calm, safe and less sensory overload for children with additional needs
  • Calm and safe area in front of school – easier to spot parents and childcare providers collecting
  • More parking available – less traffic in the local area 
  • Safe access for children cycling, scooting , walking – less traffic 
  • Neighbours more appreciative of access to their homes and local roads

The school office will open on Monday 21st August 2023. Queries will be dealt with as promptly as possible.
