SCHOOL UNIFORM

At this school we celebrate and cherish the individuality of the children. We do not want them to all be the same, so we have a NO-UNIFORM policy.

However, at the request of some of the parents, a school jacket, track suit and/or sweatshirt is available for purchase, purely on a voluntary basis.

Please contact the office for more information or click on the link to download an order form:  lucan east tracksuit order form 2012.

Tracksuits can be purchased at ‘The Schoolwear House’, 7 Castle Crescent, Monastery Road, Clondalkin, D22.

WALK ON WEDNESDAY/PARK AND STRIDE

The best way to handle the transition between home and school is to walk your child to school. The school operates a ‘Walk on Wednesday’ scheme wjere every family endeavours to walk each and every Wednesday. Those families that live far away from the school are encouraged to ‘Park and Stride’ where they park a walkable distance from the school and walk the rest of the way. The exercise and fresh air are healthy and the routine of walking to school gives the child time to mentally prepare for the school day. There is also a traffic warden to guide you all safely across the road at Griffeen Avenue.

If you are not able to walk due to time constraints, perhaps you can talk to other parents from the same estate and organise a joint walk or talk to the PTA about setting up a “Walk-to-School-Bus”.

 

SCHOOL NEWSLETTERS & NOTES

Every Friday an e-newsletter is posted to your email address. It contains all the up to date news and events happening in the school. You will need to subscribe to this newsletter by filling in your email address in the request box on the homepage of the website. This cuts down on paper and is in line with our Green School code.

Please read the newsletter carefully as it may contain important information. The school also has a very active twitter account which can be accessed on the homepage of this website. There are daily news updates from all members of the school community.

Please also check your child’s school bag for notes regularly as often notes are sent home about school trips, PTA news, events coming up etc
