Countdown to the New School Year

Dear Parents,

It is just two weeks to go until the start of the new school term and we hope you have all had a good summer.

The school will be open from next Monday, 24th August and parents may call in to pay their book bills any day next week to avoid the rush at the beginning of term.

We will also be having another “Uniform Swap Shop” in the school hall on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th August. There is a large amount of Lost Property, as well as a lot of good quality second hand items of uniform. Do drop in and claim your lost property or pick up some new school uniform free of charge – make the cost of back to school a little easier!

For parents of new Junior Infants, there will be another “Playdate in the Park” on Saturday 29th August from 2pm-3.30pm at Blackrock Park. This is organised by our Parent’s Association to help the children (and parents!) get to know one another before the first day of term. For more information, please contact Joan McCann on 086 8159271.

We would also urge all parents (new and existing) who have not already done so, to join the school Facebook Page – St Francis NS, Blackrock. It is a private group so you will need to send a friend request to the group admin. Also, visit our school website ( for up to date news and information.

Finally, all parents of the new pupils at St Francis are invited by the Parent’s Association to a coffee morning in the school library on the first day of term, Tuesday 1st September, from 9am-10am, immediately after drop-off time.

Enjoy the last two weeks of the school holidays and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Oreena 🙂
