School Lunches

Due a reduction/shortfall in funding for free lunches from the Department of Social Protection, the school are only able to provide free lunches for the remainder of this week, upto Friday 4th May.  There will be no lunches provided by the school, and therefore parents will be need to send in lunches with each child each day, from when we return from mid term, 14th May, until we break up for the summer holidays. Please be assured that free school lunches will be provided again in September.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
