St. Peter's N.S. reopens for the 2023/24 academic year

Dear parents/guardians,

We've had a wonderful start to the new school year welcoming new and familiar faces alike here in St. Peter's N.S. 

A few reminders for parents as we face into our first full week of the new school year. 

  • Please ensure all of your child’s clothes are labelled with a pen or permanent marker. 
  • Pupils will need to bring in their own clean hand towel/cloth to dry their hands with. Please ensure it is cleaned on a regular basis. They may bring in small containers of hand gel/sanitizer if they wish. 
  • Please ensure your child brings a drink to school each day (water preferably- no fizzy drinks please as per our health lunches policy). Classrooms are fitted with filtered water taps which children are welcome to use.
  • Hot lunches will commence from Monday 4th of September for all pupils. 
  • Homework will start from senior infants to 6th classes on Monday, 4th of September.

We remind parents that office hours are between 9.30am and 2pm should they wish to phone the school or see our school secretary Collette. Thank you.
