School Times School starts at 9.15am every morning and finishes at 2pm for junior and senior infants and 3pm for all other pupils. There will be a member of staff on supervision duty every school morning from 9.05am to 9.15am when the school bell rings. Any pupil in the school yard before 9.05am is the responsibility of a parent/guardian. Similarly, after school there will be a member of staff on supervision duty from 3.00pm to 3.10pm, to ensure the safety of all pupils as they make their way to the stiles for collection by their parent/guardian. Any pupil on the school grounds after 3.10pm, unless involved in extra-curricular activity with a teacher, is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.
Uniform Skirts, cardigans, pinafores, shirts, tracksuit bottoms and sweatshirts are available in the school colours. The uniforms are stocked by Ted Murtagh Drapers, Trim. All items of clothing should be marked with pupils' initials or names to identify owner if clothing is lost or misplaced.
Lunch There is a 10 minute break at 11am. Lunch break is at 12.30p.m -1p.m. In an effort to allow the infants to eat their main lunch they will begin eating their lunch at 12.20p.m. The children enter the yard at 12.30p.m but are not permitted to bring wrappers or packets into the school yard. The children should have a small snack at 11am and something more substantial at lunch time. We urge parents to encourage healthy eating habits for their children by ensuring that their snacks and lunches are appetizing but balanced. We ask parents to follow the Healthy Eating policy we have in our school. Pupils are encouraged to bring a bottle of water to school. Chocolate/cheese dips, chewy/sticky bars, sweets, chewing gum, nuts (due to nut allergies), crisps, cereal bars, fizzy drinks and juice drinks are not permitted. Homemade baked goods and plain popcorn are permitted.
