Drive Through

Add some more info about this item...

The front of school Drive Through is open in the mornings only and it is essential that you drive through only

  • KEEP TO THE RIGHT, alongside the metal barrier/railing which separates us from the main road.

  • First car in drives all the way up to where your car is in line with to St Brigid's Statue

  • Children get out of Left Hand Side of car, closing doors behind them, and walk across to the path

  • You must immediately drive on.

Perhaps think of it as you would a McDonalds "Drive Thru" or queueing at traffic lights:  -

Think of people coming behind you - move all the way along so that cars coming from the main road can pull along behind you.  

If you feel the drive through scenario is too restrictive for the needs of your family, you do have option of GAA Car Park and/or Pitch & Putt parking.  Thank you so much.

Collection Times

Add some more info about this item...

Here are three important notes regarding drop off & collection:-

1.  Traffic Lights

A request has been lodged with Kildare County Council to increase the safe crossing time at our traffic lights.  Currently, there is quiet a short Red-Green-Red sequence.  We hope our request will be actioned soon.

2.  Collections at Traffic Lights

Parents walking to meet children at the traffic light exit are welcome to cross the road (still remaining on the outside of the perimeter barrier), and line up along the wooden fence area (to the left of the traffic lights).  That way, you can meet with your child on school side of the road, and escort them across the road when traffic lights turn green.

3.  Pitch & Putt Through Road

Please do not park on the road which cuts through the Pitch & Putt course.  Apart from blocking this narrow road for other drivers/road users, you are also putting yourself directly in danger of you or your car being hit by a golf ball!!
