Fáilte Romhaibh Ar Ais

Welcome back to one and all, especially our 46 new junior infants as well as 4 other pupils who have joined us this year in other classes. I hope everyone enjoyed the summer break and no doubt the children are glad to see their classmates and friends again and parents are happy to return to normal routines.
Another busy year lies ahead as the school authorities undertake another building project (the sixth11 years). This programme will see 3 new special education rooms , a disabled toilet and a new single classroom being constructed to the rear of the building. Our planning application was submitted over the summer and we hope to be in the new rooms by Easter.
Our school has introduced a new administration system called
Aladdin. From the start of this school year it will be the formal method of recording all school attendances and the old hard back rollbooks will be no longer in use. As per Department of Education policy, each class teacher must record the roll by 10.00am. Please be advised , if your child arrives to school after10amwhatever reason,he/she will be marked absent. The usual rules regarding explanation of absences apply.

Among other things, Aladdin will also be used to reduce school costs in relation to text and print communications by switching as many of these as possible to email. In the future, newsletters and other documentation will be forwarded via email to cut down on printing costs and reduce our carbon footprint. The office will be in contact with all parents in due course regarding this and preferred emails
We will continue to use Facebook to keep you up to date with various school activities and achievements while information of a more permanent nature such as school policies will be posted on the school website.
On behalf of all the staff of the school may I wish the parents and pupils of Scoil Cnoc Bríde the very best in 2017/18. We look forward to your continued support in the months and years ahead.As we say every year:

‘Tús maith, leath na hoibre!’(a good start is half the work!).

Kindest Regards,
Brian McDonnell,
