First Year Trip Emerald Park

Dear parent(s)/guardian(s),

We hope this letter finds you safe and well. We are delighted to notify you that students from First Year are invited to attend a whole year-group school trip to Emerald Park on Thursday 23rd May.

We would envisage that all students from First Year attend this trip as a celebration with their classmates, Caomhnóirí and Moltóir for all their hard work, positivity and resilience shown throughout the year.

The cost of this trip is €37 which includes entry to the park, full access to all attractions and the zoo and private transport to and from. Should you hold an annual pass, you can book using this and your child will only pay for their transport. Cost for bus only is €12. If you are making your own booking a screenshot of the booking reference number needs to be sent to me, at [email protected], by 19/04/2024.

Students should bring a packed lunch. We would ask that you enrol your child on this outing via ‘Way2Pay’ on the school website by 12pm by Friday 3rd May 2024. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, please contact me in complete confidence to discuss this.

Students must have a signed permission slip in their dialann (Page 195) giving consent for them to attend this trip. On the day, students must attend in full school PE uniform and should bring lunch, snacks and water with them. Students will depart from school at 9.00am and will return at approximately 3.30pm.

Yours sincerely,

Aisling O’Toole, First Year Moltóir, Donna Kelly, Deputy Principal
