LÁ OSCAILTE / OPEN DAY

Beidh an scoil oscailte do thuismitheoirí nua ar an Chéadaoin an 19ú lá Nollaig. Beidh fearadh na fáilte romhaibh!

We will be holding our school Open Day on Wednesday 19th December. From 9.15 – 11.30 am in the main school and from 1.30 – 4 pm in the Naíscoil / Nursery. All parents considering Irish medium education for their children are welcome! The principal will give an address at 10 am for those parents whose children will be entering Rang 1. There will be a second address at 2.30 pm for those parents whose children will be entering the Naíscoil. She will explain the new procedures for digital admissions applications as well as give additional information about the school.

Message from the EA regarding new procedures:-

NEW DIGITAL ADMISSIONS APPLICATIONS FOR CHILDREN STARTING IN NURSERY / P1 IN SEPT. 2019
The Education Authority (EA) plan to introduce new online applications for admissions for pre-school and primary school places for September 2019 intake.

A new portal for parents to apply online for a place has been created and it will include the listing of preferences of schools.

Parents will have the opportunity to amend their submitted application until the closing date. This replaces the current paper based application form.

For admission to the forthcoming academic year, parents will continue to provide your child's birth certificate and any other verifying documents stipulated in admission criteria directly to the first preference provider/school.
The Go Live date for the new digital admissions is Wednesday 2 January 2019 at 10.00am. The closing time and date for punctual applications will be 12.00 midnight on Thursday 31 January 2019.

The EA is planning to provide Assisted Digital Support for parents and users of the new system. This will be in the form of a new telephone service, enhanced website content and a number of face-to-face drop-in clinics held in EA offices and other locations during January 2019.
