First Year girls have received vaccination forms which should be returned to their tutors as soon as possible whether they are to receive the vaccinations or not. The packs they received contain all of the relevant information and all queries should be directed to the HSE : 01-8164259. The first vaccinations are on Monday 15th September. Call the number above if your daughter cannot attend on that date.
The HSE have issued an information circular in relation to the procedures for the very unlikely event of Ebola Virus incidents. There have been no cases in Ireland to date and the risk of Ebola virus disease arriving in Ireland is very low. The information is here.
The new Transition Years had their Induction Day on Wednesday during which speakers outlined the exciting and plentiful opportunities ahead of them.

Thanks to Mr. O’Mahony, Ms. Molamphy, Ms. Norris, the tutors and all of the teachers involved for their hard work in setting up what is sure to be a tremendous year.
Our new First Years enjoyed a fun day of activity thanks to the P.E. Department. Mr. Westbrooks, Mr. Mc Nieve and Ms. Malone along with Prefects organised nutrition lessons, team bonding sessions and active introductions to various sports. Well done to all concerned. Photos on the right.

Thanks also to your parents, guardians and wider family supports, who held Sixth-year together for you and ensured space for study and rest.

The student must be present on the appropriate date/time of the viewing. All details are found in the Candidate Information Booklet here.
