Scoil Niocláis on Tuesday 21st December

Due to the recent bad weather, Scoil Niocláis will open at the later time of 10a.m. on tomorrow Tuesday to give pupils and staff a safer and better opportunity to get to school.

Aoife Downey RIP

One of our former pupils, Aoife Downey, was involved in a rare tragic accident in Frankfield last Saturday. We are deeply saddened by Aoife’s loss.

Aoife was a full of energy, a wonderfully talented athlete and was always up for great fun. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aoife’s parents Sean and Siobhan, as well as Aoife’s sisters, Caoimhe and Eadaoin.

The National Educational Psychological Service has been advising teachers in the school to help your child cope with this tragedy.

It is possible that your child may have some feelings that he/she may like to discuss with you. It is helpful to listen to your child, be supportive of them and remain calm in what can be an upsetting situation. Maintaining the normal routine will also help your child.

You can help your child by taking time to listen and encouraging them to express their feelings. It is important to give truthful information that is appropriate to their age.

If you would like to discuss any matter pertaining the recent tragic events, you may contact me and/or the deputy principal, Sheelagh O’Leary at the school.

Aoife will be lying in repose in the Church of the Incarnation, Frankfield on tomorrow Tuesday from 4.30p.m. until 6.30p.m.

The funeral mass will take place on Wednesday at 11a.m.

Monday 20th December

Scoil Nioclais will be open today. Use the church entrance where possible. If you feel it is unsafe to travel, stay at home. More later.
