Cross Country Runners

Mr Dillon's and Ms Redmond's boys were out on Wednesday in Jobstown Park for the first in a series of cross country races organised by South Dublin County Council. We enjoyed nice sunshine and some success with many boys finishing in the top 10, most noticeably Harry Dempsey and Adam Mooney who finished 1st and 2nd in their respective races.

Reminders for Parents

School Wardens

South Dublin County Council has notified all school wardens that they should not carry out duties beyond circa 15 minutes (see below) after school closing times. A practice may have evolved over years whereby wardens would take it upon themselves to remain on duty while children visited sweetshops or chatted outside school gates. It is our understanding that wardens may not be insured to do this and will, with immediate effect, adhere more closely to their assigned schedules. If your child avails of the school warden service, make sure that he (or your minder / au pair …) is aware of this change of practice. If you have any queries, please contact South Dublin County Council.
We would like to acknowledge the essential service carried out by our school wardens who perform their duties in all kinds of weather with great good humour.
Assigned Times
Fortfield Park until 2:45pm
Templeville Road until 2:45pm
Wainsfort Road until 2:55pm
Cypress Grove Road until 3:00pm
College Drive until 3:05pm


The senior infant timetable is very flexible . . . it was a bit of stretch . . . but Ms. Dunne's class bent over backways to fit in a session on our new yoga mats.

School Principal, Lorcan Coyle with Mr. Ryan and his son Conor promoting no uniform day in aid of Temple Street Children's Hospital. Thank you for your wonderful response. The sealed collection boxes will be returned to Temple Street and they will let us know how much was collected.
