 Dear Parents/Guardians,



We are really looking forward to meeting our new First Year Students in full uniform ready for action on Tuesday 28th August at 9.10 am.  It is an exciting time for everyone. We realise the move to secondary school can be daunting but from experience we know things will all work out.  If you ever have any query please let us know.

Thanks to funding from the Dept. of Education and the Parents’ Association, we intend to operate the book rental scheme again this year as follows.

The rental fee is €80 each year and is payable on the day of collection.

Personal & Social Awareness Week

The Pastoral Care Team in association with the Parents’ Association is organising a Personal & Social Awareness Week from 17th - 21st September with speakers on anti-bullying, substance abuse, health issues, road safety and social media usage.

School Uniform

We compliment all our students who wear the school uniform so impeccably. It is a credit to all concerned.  Uniforms are available from Dympna McDermott, Church Street, Glenamaddy. There is a 10% discount offer on uniforms in July. Please note the following:

  • Students must wear black shoes. Pumps, keds, runners etc. are not allowed.
  • Girls wear the school skirt or navy school pants. Skirts are to be worn on or below the knee. Students may not wear track suit pants.
  • Students wear a white top and any colour shorts for P.E class.
  • Girls may wear a pair of earrings. Facial piercing is prohibited for safety reasons.


If you ever have a question about the uniform please contact us in school.
