This link should, hopefully, help you find them..

School Jumpers and Track Suits

June 19th, 2014

School Tracksuits: Next Tuesday morning, June 24th from 8.30am..

School Jumpers: Next Thursday morning, June 26th, from 8.30am, also..

On  Monday (for tracksuits) and Wednesday next (for jumpers), reminder notes will be sent home with the girls who are in school, at present, to help you remember what you ordered last month. The cost will also be included on the notes. In the younger classes, in particular, you may want to collect the items yourselves. In the older classes, if you wish, you can send the money in with the girls and they can collect their own items in the hall, when all parents have finished collecting theirs. In this case, their names will be put on them before they return to their classes to avoid any mix-ups. Unfortunately, however, we won’t be able to accept responsibility for any money that they might misplace, so it might be a good idea to put money in an envelope with their names on them, before coming to school.

This year, it is just our own school in the hall, so it should run smoothly and we thank Debby and Christine, in advance, for their help in all of this! Thank you!

First Communion 2014

May 16th, 2014

Last Saturday, we held our 2014 First Communion. In Ms. Ryan’s absence, Mr. McMenamin did a great job preparing the girls and they all looked positively resplendent on the day. The Parents’ Committees from both schools provided refreshments in the School Hall afterwards. This allowed everyone time to relax and chat and we, once again, extend our thanks to them for their selfless generosity in providing such a kind gesture to the families of our First Communicants.DSCF5191 DSCF5186

Ringsend College / Dublin Port Company iPad Initiative

May 16th, 2014

Last week, the Minister for Education and local T.D. Ruairi Quinn launched the new iPad initiative for Ringsend College, supported by the Dublin Port Company. Our girls will be the first to benefit from it in September when they move on to Secondary School! The Lady Mayor of Ringsend, Alice Foley, was also in attendance and added a certain gravitas and a great degree of glamour to the occasion. Several of Alice’s nieces are in the school at the moment.DSCF5177 DSCF5178
