Local schools (in the Howth Deanery) have now applied through the Deanery form. However, each year there are a limited number of places for direct application to the school. Anyone may apply directly. The number of places is very limited, as Ardscoil La Salle makes a feature of small classes and an overall number which allows every student to know every other student. These 'extra' places are expected to be taken up very quickly. If you are interested please phone 01 848 0055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
Congratulations to the U19's football team and their coaches Mr. Brennan and Mr. Kelly for their win at todays final.

Some places are still available for september. Application forms are available from the school reception
Last week April 23rd - 27th was Anti-bullying Week in Ardscoil La Salle. All activities were organised by Ms Dever's CSPE class, as the action project for their junior cert.
Everyone in the class got involved in the planning and organisation stages. It was a real class effort.
They organised and facilitated anti-bullying workshops for other classes. A friendship mural, that included the handprints of the wholeschool community, was painted in the lunchroom. The students in the class took on the teachers in a football match. By the way the teachers won a very close match. They made and sold anti- bullying loom bands. The grand finale was a guest speaker from Childline who gave an excellent talk on cyber- bullying and how to deal with it, before being presented with a cheque for the money raised during the week.
Each year the Student Council practices active citizenship by raising money for various charities. Today members of the Council presented a cheque to St Frances Hospice. The money was raised with a non uniform day.
Ardscoil La Salle was part of a community of over 2500 students from 70 Secondary Schools within the Dublin Archdiocese who participated in Emmanuel 2018 on Monday 26th February. On the night our school performed as part of a massed choir accompanied by a full orchestra. Two of our 5th year students Adam Maher and Niamh Reid performed as soloists.
The Student Council organised Ardscoil La Salle to celebrate the National Schools Go Orange Day on Friday 9th Feb.
We filled the lobby with orange baloons, hung orange gratitude bunting, held face painting sessions, posted instagram pictures with #schoolsgoorange. The day ended with a "Just Dance" disco for the afternoon.
The panto has been moved to Tuesday, March 6th
