The final session of the ‘You Shall be My Witness’ programme will take place in St. Philip’s church on Friday, June 17th at 2 p.m.  All parents of the pupils are invited to attend.

Huge congratulations to all the pupils who made their Confirmation recently.  They conducted themselves beautifully throughout the ceremony and Archbishop Martin was full of praise for them.

Our Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 16th at 1 p.m. in the school hall.  All parents are cordially invited to attend.

Many thanks to all who contributed to our sponsored walk.  The sum of €3675 was raised.

Many thanks also to all the 6th class pupils who, under the guidance of Ms. Flynn and the staff, raised the sum of €1500 at the recent jumble sale.  Thank you to all who supported this event so generously and a big thank you to the parents who helped out on the day.

All money raised will help to provide additional educational materials and experiences for our pupils.


Under new regulations, all parents who help out in the school are required to be Garda vetted.  We value and rely on the involvement of parents to run many of our school activities – library, Maths for Fun, etc.  If you are in a position to help out, please contact the school for more information.


Booklists will be given to all pupils next week.  These books can be rented through the school during the first week in September.  We would ask that all parents ensure that there is a definite arrangement in place to pay for their children’s books so that work can begin promptly in September.


Report will be sent out later in the month.  If you do not receive your child’s school report, please contact the school office.


The school uniform & tracksuit can be bought in Mr. Price in the Blanchardstown Centre.  Many thanks for all your support with uniforms throughout the year.


If you have any queries during the summer holidays please contact the school by email (address at top of newsletter).  Emails will be checked regularly and your query will be dealt with as promptly as possible.


Under the Department of Education’s Summer Works Scheme, we are delighted to announce that the school has been granted a full electrical upgrade which will be taking place during the summer holidays.


Mountview Playschool are now taking enrolments for September.


The school will close on Thursday, June 30th at 12 noon for summer holidays.  We will be reopening on Thursday, September 1st at 9 a.m.

Sincere thanks to all of you for your support and co-operation over the past year.  I hope you have a relaxing summer break and we look forward to seeing your children back here on September 1st.
