New Dismissal/Collection Arrangements

Dear families, Following a period of review the school is making changes to the dismissal/collection of pupils at home time for the remainder of the school year. These changes are being implemented due to ongoing concerns regarding the health and safety of the children at collection time, specifically due to the heavy congestion caused by adults moving about and into the playground (which should not occur under child protection guidelines). The success or otherwise of these changes will be reviewed again at the end of the school year, with a view to making arrangements for the new school year in September. As such, the new dismissal/collection protocols, commencing on Monday, May 13th, are: Junior dismissal (1.40pm) continues as normal. At senior dismissal (2.40pm) First, Second and Third classes will be dismissed from the playground as normal. Fourth class children will now be dismissed via the three doors to the PE hall – one class from each door. (This concerns Mr Lacey’s, Ms St John’s and Mr Burns’ classes.) Fifth and Sixth class children will continue to be dismissed via the front door of the school. Only Garda-vetted crèche personnel (pre-arranged with the school) and bus supervisors will be allowed to enter the playground at collection time. No adults/parents are permitted to enter the school, PE hall or playground to collect children at collection time. Parental co-operation is essential at this time to ensure a smooth dismissal from school and the safe collection of all children – your support in this is greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Deirdre Corcoran,...

Seachtain na Gaeilge 2019

All the pupils had lots of fun celebrating Seachtain na Gaeilge this year. Among the events organised were: céilís,  concerts, news on the intercom in Irish, a phrase of the day, seanfhocail art competition and the teaching of art/PE through Irish. The photos below are just a snapshot of the craic agus ceol that we had during the week!                                                                                           Some of our pupils proved to be excellent concert presenters and our talented teachers played some traditional Irish music for the classes too!                           ...

Fresh Air Friday!

Fresh Air Friday takes place in Balbriggan this Friday 15th February and here at Scoil Chormaic CNS we are doing our bit for the community! We are encouraging as many of our children and parents as possible to walk or cycle to school on Friday. With Operation Transformation based in Balbriggan this year, this is a brilliant way to feel part of the buzz by promoting exercise and healthy living. It is also a great way of helping to reduce those harmful car emissions for the day! For those children that travel to school on the main school bus, it will be dropping them off at our old school (in Castlemill) at 8.40 where some teachers and parents will meet them and walk with them up to our school. Other parents and children are welcome to join us in the walk up to the school! The children will go home on the bus as normal at the end of the school day. Looking forward to seeing you all out walking or cycling on Friday! Thank you, The Active School Committee and the Green Schools Committee See PDF...
