Parents/Guardians are actively discouraged from taking holidays outside of the above holiday schedule. The school is obliged by law to inform the National Education Welfare Board when a pupil is absent for a total of 20 school days in one school year or where there is a concern about a pupil’s attendance. There is a direct link between school attendance and pupil progress. Your co-operation with maintaining high attendance and punctuality is greatly appreciated. We look forward to a great year!
