One-Way System

We ask that parents be mindful of the one-way system in operation during school hours. Parents are asked to enter the green area via the Castledurrow entrance and exit via The Stores Daybreak. Many thanks for your co-operation as it will help keep the area safer for children going to and from the School.

Due to the decline in Church cleaners we urgently need more men and women with one hour to spare per week to come on the Rota. We try to have four in a group, so the more groups we have the less you will be called on during the year. Contact: Betty Walsh or Angela Drennan or any of the volunteers on the list with your name and you will be notified through the newsletter which month you will be required to volunteer.
