Our first €25 voucher has been won.

Many of our students had full attendance this week. They can go on to finish the 20 day challenge and enter the draw for one of 4 ipads.

For everyone in the school, the clock has been reset for the next weekly challenge. Anyone who has perfect attendance next week can win the €25 cinema voucher. Be In to Win.

Next week there will also be two spot prizes. The draws will take place at random times on random days. Anyone in at the time of the draw can win. It could be you!

During the 20 days Mon, 21 Jan - Fri, 15 Feb the school will be focussing on attendance. We will be focussing on both full days off and part-days (where students have some classes off for a variety of reasons). We will also be focussing on punctuality.

All students have recieved a very detailed analysis of their attendance up to Christmas. They are supposed to bring this letter home to parents. If, for any reason, the letter did not arrive home, there is a copy available for collection on the office.

We have a 20 day challange (with other schools) based on full attendance and all who have full attendance will be entered into a draw. There are 4 iPads to be won.

Screen addiction affects many families, both adults and children, often unknown to themselves. Often people speak only of games, and often only of particular games only, but there is an issue with all screen usage. Follow the link below to find out if it affects members of your family, and how to plan for change if it does. The document mentions only games but, if you substitue the word 'screen'  for games, applies to all screen use.

This measure is taken to ensure that there are no distractions to teaching and learning.This ban extends to classrooms and corridors. Phones must be left in lockers. If students breach this rule, they will have to surrender their phones daily, to the deputy principal. An exception may be granted if a teacher explicitly requests students to bring phones to a particular class for an educational purpose. The exemption must be sought on a class by class basis. This ban will be extended to the whole school next year.
