We have had reports of head lice in a number of classes. We ask that parents check their children’s hair and to treat for head lice if necessary.

If a child is unwell, they should not be sent to school. Please keep them at home to recuperate until they are well enough to return to school.



If families are taking holidays early, please contact the office to notify us of the reason for the absence.

School Teams

Recently, we have been very busy on the sporting front. Congratulations to all the children who represented our school on school teams throughout the year. Our athletes, cricketers and soccer teams are still going strong. Best of luck to all!


Tyrrelstown GAA Club

Our school enjoys a very positive relationship with our local GAA club. They provide us with valuable assistance and advice, as well as allowing us to use their facilities. They provide coaching for all children from Under 8s upwards.


Contact Details

If any of your contact details have changed, particularly phone numbers, please notify the office as soon as possible. This is particularly important as we regularly have to contact parents at very short notice. We also need the names of people to contact in the case of emergency.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
