Important Dates

Holy Rosary School will close for the summer holidays on Friday, 28th June at 12.30pm and re-open for all pupils on Thursday, 29th August.

Stamped Addressed Envelopes

Please send a Stamped Addressed Envelope to your child’s teacher for the posting of your child’s report and booklist.  Failure to send this in will result in you not receiving the above documents and school will be closed for most of the summer so they will not be available to you until September.  The booklists will be posted on the school website www.holyrosaryps.ie.

  • You will receive a text/email early in July giving you the link to enable you to pay for your child’s book bill online.  You can pay small amounts regularly on line if you wish or alternatively you can pay the teacher in September.
  • If any child is not returning to school in September please let us know as we have people waiting for places.

Arts and Activities Week

This week saw the return of our annual Arts & Activities Week.  It has been a fun-filled action-packed week.  There will be drumming, dancing, face painting, gymnastics, hiking, art, music, soccer blitzes and even a visit from a rock band to name but a few activities.

Parade

Our Parade for Arts & Activities Week will take place on Monday, 24th June at 11.30am.  Please feel free to come along and cheer us on as we pass by.

Sporting Success

A big congratulations also to the school basketball team on their success in the Annual Tallaght Garda Basketball Tournament in the Basketball Arena.  They made it to the Semi Final which takes place this afternoon and we wish them all the best.  Well done to all the children involved and to their teachers Ms. Thornton and Ms. Morgan.

Athletics:  Well done to all the boys and girls who participated in athletics this year.  The children brought home medals from Corkagh Park and from Santry.  They were involved in Cross Country, Hurdles,  Long Jump, Shot Putt and various other races.   The boys and girls did the school proud and we hope to continue on with this success for years to come.
