Basketball Easter Camp
Returning to Normal
On Monday, April the 4th our staggered start and finish to the school day will end at last.
- School will revert back to the normal hours. The gates will open at 8:40 am and the bell will ring at 8:50am for class.
- Children should continue to use the same gates to enter and exit.
- We have supervision at all the lines so we ask that parents/guardians of Senior Infant pupils, drop them to the line and go and parents/guardians of children from 1st upwards to drop children at the gate.
- The teacher will make allowances for late arrivals as we know some families will have to adjust to an earlier start.
- Home time will be 1:30pm for all Infants classes and 2:30pm for all others.
We close for Easter Holidays on Friday, April 8th at 12 noon
National Tree Week
We were very excited during the week to receive a delivery of 300 bare root whips courtesy of the Castleknock Tidy Towns Association.
This was in conjunction with National Tree Week and the hope is that the boys and girls will plant their trees all around the local area this week. There was a mix of Whitethorn, Blackthorn, Alder, Hazel and Birch trees.
Children from Ms. Dooley’s 4th class did a great job sorting all the trees into boxes for the 5th & 6th class pupils.
Our student Council members then explained to their classmates what they needed to do and the steps involved in planting their bare root whips before distributing them to all of the 5th & 6th class students.
We look forward to seeing these trees growing strong and prospering over the next number of years, just like our students!!
6th Class Football
Here is a great picture of the 6th class footballers after their match yesterday. They are with Mr. O’Loughlin and Keith Barr who is an ex Dublin Player from the 90s.
Keith came up to watch the boy’s match and he also gave them a great team chat.
The boys have played 4 matches so far in their competition. They have won all four and are playing the SEMI FINALS next week.
We could be heading to Croke Park soon!!

A Morning Jig!
Mr. Harrison and Mr. Sweeney were on the stairs this morning to welcome the 5th and 6th class pupils with a few rousing tunes. They even managed to get a few of the girls to dance a jig.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all our pupils, parents and guardians.
