 “Our wonderful staff and  students getting into the Christmas spirit for our Christmas Jumper Day. Proceeds going to Pieta House.”
Thank you!

Our beautiful Christmas tree was coordinated by our Belle Menti students with the assistance of our TY class,  Woodwork and Religion departments, SNAs  and Caretaking staff. To adorn our tree everyone in the school was asked to draw an outline of their hand and decorate it. A wonderful collective effort by all resulted in our beautiful creation.
Nollaig shona duit!

Due to the rise in COVID cases across the country, we are unable to hold our planned face to face 5th-year parent-teacher meeting. We have opted to trial a virtual face to face video conference meeting with you and your child.  The Parent Teacher Meeting will take place on Thursday 2nd December from 4:15-6:45pm.  

At this stage, all 5th-year parents/guardians will have received a unique parent code to log into our Meeting portal and schedule your virtual appointments with your student’s teachers. You will be given 5-minute slots. 


Please ensure you test the connection prior to the arranged meeting times by clicking on the ‘Join Video Appointments’. We recommend using your mobile in landscape mode or a laptop with a webcam and mic. Any issues on the evening or prior to the night ring the school. 094-96-59315 

Please watch the following video for further help in getting ready for the meetings:
