We started our Cumann na mBunscol campaign in early September. The girls had the busier schedule, playing Gael Scoil, Ballon N.S, Queen of the Universe, Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál and Tullow Girls.

In order to identify a focus for our Digital Learning Plan, we are gathering information and would welcome feedback from as many pupils as possible from 3rd-6th class using an online survey. Since only one pupil at a time can complete the survey during school time, we are hoping that it can be done at home. It shouldn't take more than about 20 mins. but some of the language may be a little difficult to understand and adult help may be required. Please use the following link to bring you to the correct survey. You may take breaks as you work but once you start, the survey must be submitted within 2 hours. Click here to access the survey.

Letters were recently sent out explaining changes to the new Drumcondra Reading Tests. These letters also explained a little about how these test scores should be interpreted. Copies of these letters as PDF files have been added on the OUR SCHOOL section of this website under POLICIES, as you may wish to refer to them and may not be able to lay your hands on the original copy. One letter is entitled "Information re. School Reports and Testing (2nd-6th)" and there is a second one whose title is" Information re. School Reports and Testing (1st Class)".
