Back to School 2019

Posted on Monday, August 26, 2019

On Monday 2nd of September we will all return to school in Eyrecourt NS. 

We welcome our new Junior Infants: Ava, Emily, Mila, Noah, Shane and Tyler.
We also welcome our new teacher of the Junior classroom, Ms Amber McGrath. Ms McGrath comes to us with great experience and enthusiasm and we are delighted to add her to our staff. 

Last years sixth class of Alanna, Enya, Ethan, Jennifer and Patryk have already started in Banagher College. We're all looking forward to hearing about their great achievements into the future.  

If you were passing the school you might have noticed that unfortunately there has been no activity so far on the wall. Pupils and visitors will still enter and exit the school at the left side door. Hopefully this will be rectified in the next few months. 

School Times
School opens at 9.20am. Pupils should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes beforehand and wait to line up on the yard.  Teachers collect their class from the yard at 9.20am after the bell has been rung. Parents are welcome to accompany the new pupils to their classroom for the first few days until they settle in.

12:00pm Junior infants for the first 2/3 weeks.
Ms McGrath will inform parents when she feels class is ready to stay until 2pm. Parents enter the school using the left side door which will be unlocked at 12pm.

2:00pm  Senior infants
Parents enter the school using the left side door which will be unlocked at 2pm.

Please organise a safe meeting point with your child or walk up and meet them at the gate. Practice the safe cross code with your child and make them aware of hazards on the road. The front of the school is reserved for the school bus. We are a Green Travel School so encourage your child to walk or cycle, or meet you at the square if possible.
