Junior Cycle Schoolbooks Scheme for 2024/25

This covers the school locker fee, personal accident insurance and additional classroom resources not covered by the scheme. 

Transition Year 2024/25 cost of €130 

5th and 6th Year Students This service charge remains at €100 and covers personal accident insurance, senior book rental, locker rental and key, school Journal, etc. 

The link for the service charge will be sent to the parent's/guardian’s mobile number in late August.

  1. Monday- Thursday classes will start at 08.55 am and finish at 15.30 pm.

VSware Parent/Guardian App

We use a school management system called VSware to monitor our student's attendance, sign-out requests, behaviour records, assessment, reports etc. Parents have access to this information and all parents need to download this app and check it regularly for updates and correspondence from the school. Please note that notifications will need to be turned on through your phone settings to receive these notifications. 

Please note that Students should not be using this app. It is very important that login details to this app are not shared with anyone as they could then access your account at any time and submit requests to leave the school during the school day. 

We do recommend that all parents reset their passwords at the beginning of the school year if you have shared your login details with anyone. 

Incoming first-year parents/guardians will receive login details to this app in late August via a text message. 

If you already received login details from the school but haven't logged on please follow the instructions below. 

  • INSTRUCTIONS - Downloading and logging into the Parent APP - HERE

  • INSTRUCTIONS - Navigating the VSware parent dashboard - HERE

  • INSTRUCTIONS - Submitting absences request to school - HERE

Uniform Policy

Our full uniform policy is available through the school website. 

In Summary, the uniform is:

  • A bottle green jumper with a crest affixed

  • Plain black trousers or a knee-length black skirt.

  • No denim/leathers and no leggings except on PE days.

  • Shirt - sage green or plain white.

  • School tie.

  • School coat with a crest or a plain all-black Jacket with no logos.

**The full PE uniform should be worn to school on the day you have PE timetabled- the normal school uniform must be worn on non-PE days

The wearing of the correct school uniform by each student is the responsibility of his or her parent/guardian. The uniform will be monitored by all staff on a daily basis. All personal belongings, uniforms, etc. should be clearly marked with the owner’s name as no responsibility can be taken by the school for the loss/damage to belongings or money.

PE Half-Zip Order Link 

Please see the attached link below that is live from now on and will be up until the 1st  of July. Parents can choose 'click and collect' and the tops will be delivered to the school without having to pay a delivery charge. 


Wishing you all the very best for the summer months ahead. 

Yours Sincerely, 

Caroline Doherty.
