Booklist Update 2023-2024

From the 2023-2024 academic year, the government will provide grants for schools to source school books and stationery for each pupil. Parents are no longer required to provide same.

A trip to Arklow Library

Ms. Russell, Fiadh, Teagan and Kaylin went on a mission to collect a haul of books from Arklow library. When there, Head librarian Kathy showed the pupils a book that had recently been returned after 46 years! The fine was due to be well over €4,000! It was waived thankfully! She also showed the girls the old rules of borrowing! The library is such a friendly place!! Kathy and team always go out of their way to help us find what we need and really help to foster a love of reading!
