Lollipop Crossing at 1:40pm

It has been brought to the attention of the school that very few parents and children are using the service of the Lollipop crossing at 1:40pm.
Fingal Co.Council has asked that parents be surveyed to ascertain the need for this service at 1:40pm.
Please return the slip your child in Junior and Senior Infants were given to your child's class teacher by Monday 2nd December 2013.
The Lollipop crossing at 2:40pm will continue.

The Boards of Management are delighted to inform you that after many years work, planning permission for a new state of the art school building has been received.

The new school, designed by award winning architects Gilroy McMahon will house general purpose areas, special needs facilities, libraries, classrooms, parent's room and fully serviced kitchen areas.

Many of the services currently provided in our school such as preschool Early Start Programme, breakfast club, homework clubs, parent's classes and meeting areas will benefit from being located in a specially designed space.

Our children currently receive the highest quality of education in St Patrick's schools. We are therefore delighted that all of this work will be taking place in a building designed for a modern education. The Boards of Management are hopeful that the building will commence mid to late 2014 and we will keep you informed as the project progresses.
