Dear Parents,

Clear entrance for Senior Infants entering the building

Please make sure that parents do not obstruct our senior infants entering the school building. The boys walk along three coloured lines and it is important that there are no parents, prams, bikes or scooters in their way.

Free Nasal Flu Vaccine

Lombard Pharmacy will vaccinate all boys in the school on the 6th December once we receive consent forms from parents. There is no obligation for any boy to receive this vaccination. An information leaflet with the consent form was emailed to all parents last week.
