Staff Training

Regulations regarding the reporting of Child Protection concerns have been given a new legal status.
The Department of Education & Skills has instructed that schools should close for the children on two half days in order that the staff be trained in the area of reporting these concerns.
The school will therefore close at 12:00 noon on Friday 23rd February and Tuesday 6th March to facilitate this training.
