Practical Tips for you and your Junior Infant Child
Starting school can be just as much of a transition for you, the parent, as it is for your child - especially if this is your first child to start school. We hope you find some useful information here.
Please note that the children will have short days for their first two weeks: from Monday 3rd September 2018 through to Friday 14th September, Junior Infants will finish at 12:15pm. From Monday 17th September, they will finish at the normal time of 2:00pm.
It's also good to know that, although your child's schoolbag is full of books, stationery etc going to school Day One, they won't be weighed down by this on a daily basis. Their schoolbag will be almost empty when you collect them. Teacher will store almost everything at school and only send home items needed for homework, as necessary.
