Principal's Welcome...

welcome
 

Hello and welcome to our school website. As a past pupil of The Convent of Mercy it is a pleasure  for me to be Principal of our school.

We have wonderful children and a great school with a very busy as well as varied curriculum and I hope you enjoy the various pages on offer on our website so that you get a real insight into the life of our school.

Please take time to look up our website and read all the new additions to it. This is a great opportunity for you to keep up to date with what is going on in school and to comment on the policies we are revising.

The site is regularly updated so ensure you check us out each week. I look forward to working with you and your children in the coming years.

Maths Week Ireland

 

October 14th-22nd was Maths Week Ireland. We took part in maths trails, entered online competitions and had a brilliant time making and playing maths games. Don't forget to check out the 'curriculum' section for more maths tips and tricks, as well as ideas for helping at home with maths.

 

 

Parents' Maths Evening

Thanks to all the parents who attended our Maths Workshop with Timothy Doyle. We had brilliant feedback and hope to run future events for parents. He stressed the importance of parents as co-educators of their children and suggested many fun ways to support their home learning. The Foundation Stage (P/R1/2) and P/R3/4 booklets are available to download in the Curriculum section of our website.
