Board of Management
The Board would like to wish Ms Cathy Daly and Ms Niamh Moran well on their impending maternity leave blocks. Ms Shauna Grimes and Ms Edel Burke are the cover teachers. Ms Edel Burke will be the job-share partner for Ms Ryder and will teach Senior Infants in place of Ms Moran.. At last meeting the board ratified new school policies in area of Exemption from study of Irish and Remote teaching and learning. They also completed the annual review of Anti-bullying policy and are looking forward to 2021 and hopefully new school developments in area of ICT and ASD accommodation. We also look forward to the return of hurling coaching in 2021 !
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.
Thanks to all our pupils , families , staff and LWR for working together over the past 4 months to ensure that safety procedures are in place and followed by all to try to keep our school community safe from COVID 19. Please God 2021 will be a brighter and safer place for all.

December 20- Children’s luminaries project

January 14, 2021

The boys in third class designed art for the Luminaries Project. Their art work coincided with a short tale from years ago and the final product was displayed on the wall of St. Brendan’s school. The boys really enjoyed their animations coming to life.  I want to wish all the boys and their families a very happy, peaceful and safe Christmas this year. See you all in the New Year.
