Updates for 2023-2024 & Return to School Dates

With the summer break now well underway, we trust you are enjoying the sunshine. The State Exams are proceeding well, with Junior Cycle exams finishing up today. 

Please note below some important updates in relation to the new school year, including return dates for all year groups.

Student Direct Costs 2023-2024

Thank you most sincerely to all who have already completed their 1st and 2nd instalment payments or the full payment of Student Direct Costs for 2023-2024.

A reminder that the due date for the 3rd and final instalment is Wednesday, 12th July.

We are acutely aware that many of our families will be experiencing challenging financial circumstances that will make it difficult for them to pay the Student Direct Costs for next year. If you find yourself in this situation, please make contact with the school in confidence as soon as possible.

If you have any queries in relation to payments, please contact the Main Office:
