School Day

All pupils should be in their places by 8.55 am so that class can start at 9 am. School finishes at 1.45 pm for Junior and Senior Infants and at 2.45 pm for all other classes. Whereas the school building is generally open from 8 am, most children arrive after 8.30 am.

Please note that Junior Infant and Senior Infant classrooms will only open from 08.30am onwards. No Junior or Senior Infant pupil should be in school before that time.

Once in the classroom, older pupils are expected to sit at their places. They may choose a book/game or just chat with their classmates until lessons commence. Pupils are not allowed to leave their classrooms without permission from the time they arrive.

In the mornings we request that parents do not stay in the classrooms, or wait to chat to teachers as they enter their classrooms. Parents wishing to meet with a particular teacher should either contact the office for an appointment or write a note in their daughter's journal.
