School begins at 8.50a.m. To ease the child into the school routine we have a policy where Junior Infants go home for the first two weeks at 12.00p.m.
After that they go home at 1.30p.m.
For the first few days the junior infants will start at 9:00.
- Get into the habit of being in good time for school from the beginning.
- Mid-morning break: 10.40a.m. to 11.00a.m.
- Lunch is 12:40 – 1pm
- Children need plenty of rest after the effort and excitement of a day at school. You should ensure that he/she gets to bed early and has a good night’s sleep.
- When they have settled in and hopefully, looks upon school as a “home from home” do continue to show interest in their daily adventures. Give them an ear if they want to tell you things – but don’t pester them with questions.
