Co-Education Begins

Co-education has proved to be extremely popular as we had a very large intake of boys and girls to our Junior Infants’ classes this year. We have two classes of Junior Infants, with 22 pupils in each class. We enrolled 33 girls and 11 boys, and it’s such a joy to see all the children learning and playing together so happily. We expect to offer two small Junior Infants classes again in September 2023.

We are very proud of the atmosphere of genuine care, respect and joy that is all around our school and we can assure you that your child will be nurtured academically, emotionally and creatively to reach his/her full potential over the eight years in our school.
If you have any questions about enrolment, you are very welcome to contact us by phone, by email or by calling to our school and we’ll be happy to show you around our lovely school.

It can also be useful to talk to other parents about their experience working with our school and staff. In fact, we hope that our wonderful pupils can give the best testimonials about our school!!
