We are looking forward to welcoming our newest Hollyparkers into our school on Tuesday 28th May.

Junior & Senior Infants will finish at 11:45am on our Welcome Day to facilitate classroom set up.



Uniform Sales


The PA have kindly organised a Pre-Loved Uniform Sale to take place in the tunnel on that day to facilitate incoming Junior Infants.


The PA will also organise a Pre-Loved Uniform Sale for all other classes at a later date – all details to follow.


Our school uniform supplier will set up a Pop-Up Shop in the school hall on 28th May to facilitate all parents. Further details/timetable to follow.


 

Confirmation


Congratulations to the girls and boys who made their Confirmation on Friday 17th May. Thank you to the Boys' School Choir for their beautiful singing which really enhanced the ceremony.

The girls and boys who have not yet made Confirmation are very much looking forward to their celebration of Confirmation on Friday 24th May. The Girls' School Choir will be singing on that day.


Confirmation Photo Day: Tuesday 28th May

 

Thank You!

Thank you to the 283 families (that is 68% of our families) who have already given a Voluntary Contribution to the school during this school year. Voluntary Contributions can be made via Aladdin at any time throughout the year. Each and every contribution is very much appreciated and will be used to enhance your daughter's learning environment.

 

 

Booklists

Booklists for 2024/25 were issued to all classes on Friday 3rd May.


All current school books are to be returned to the Class Teacher by Wednesday 19th June or before this if pupils are leaving school before the end of term. Parents/Guardians are asked to ensure that books are returned in good condition for re-use in the following year. (Pencil markings rubbed out, etc.)

Hollypark PA

Our girls cannot wait for the PA Midsummer Cake Sale & Raffle: Friday 21st June!


 

Sunflowers!

A welcome burst of sunshine!! Huge thanks to Pat Perera and her team of volunteers  (parents/grandparents and friends) who came into our school this week to plant sunflowers with our girls.


Parents are kindly asked to return pots to the school once the sunflowers have been planted outdoors.


 

Health & Safety

A gentle reminder that for health and safety reasons all children (including pre-schoolers and other siblings) and adults must dismount bikes and scooters upon entry to the school. This applies at drop off and collection times and throughout the school day.


We also remind parents/guardians that for health and safety reasons, no dogs (with the exception of guide and assistance dogs) are allowed on the school premises.


 

Respect for Our Neighbours


Parents are reminded that for the health and safety of our girls, there is no vehicular access to the school for drop-off in the mornings.


As a Green School, with a very active Coiste Glas, we actively encourage our girls to walk, cycle and scoot to school. As 80% of our pupils live within 2km of the school, this is very doable for many.


Unfortunately, but quite justifiably, our neighbours frequently complain of inconsiderate parking on the roads close to our school.

 

Please use the Church car park if it’s on your route to school: parking at the Church is free to all families at drop off and collection times.
