Starting School: Junior Infants September 2017

A big welcome to all our new Junior Infants getting ready to start school next Thursday morning!

It’s an exciting time for everyone and we are all working hard to make sure that it’s as happy and positive a beginning as possible.

Below is a welcome letter for the parents of all our new junior infants with some hints and tips on preparing for the Big Day and an idea of what to expect on Thursday morning.
