We are delighted to launch our first ever Hocus Pocus Halloween Camp in Scoil Bhríde
Our school calendar for the year can be viewed by clicking on the link below. This calendar has now been updated to include dates for First Holy Communion and Confirmation next May.
The HSE has asked the Department to circulate to schools the latest news item on Measles. The information can be accessed from the HPSC website at http://www.hpsc.ie/News/MainBody,15795,en.html
This link gives an update on the Measles outbreak. It talks about the importance of MMR and going to school. It also mentions the older child who might have missed MMR vaccination.
We would like to extend a very special welcome to all of our new students who started with us in September and to all students returning for the new school year.
