School Parking.

Good morning.

As the weather is getting a little colder, there has been a noticeable increase in the volume of traffic around the school area at the beginning and end of the school day.  We would like to remind all parents/carers to be mindful of where they park their cars,  to ensure the safety of our children and maintain access to neighbour’s driveways at all times.

A reminder that the car parks on the school grounds are for staff only.


Thank you for your cooperation

Fizzy Drinks in School

Good afternoon,

As we continue to promote healthy life choices in school, can we ask that you avoid fizzy drinks for snacks and lunch? Children are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to school each day that they can drink in class. There is the facility to refill these if needed.

Head Lice


A reminder to all parents and carers.

Please take a few minutes to check your child’s hair on a weekly basis for Head Lice.



Mrs Mooney


Good Afternoon,

After the first few weeks of the new school session, It’s reassuring to see all the children settled in their classes with their teachers, especially our new Primary 1 children.   They have adapted to their new routines with ease.

As we continue to promote and encourage independence, we would like to remind parents/ carers, that after the September weekend holiday,  parents/ carers are kindly asked not to enter the playground.  Staff are present in the playgrounds to supervise the children.

May we thank you in advance for your cooperation.


Mrs Mooney
