You can drop off luggage from 09:00 if you wish to go shopping for school supplies, and then return no later than 20:00.

You will receive a guide in June on what your child needs to bring. They can also purchase bed linen locally, as we are adjacent to Liffey Valley shopping mall that has departments stores; Marks and Spencer, Dunnes Stores, an Eason bookstore and a Primark (Penneys). You can also purchase books, uniform and bedding online and have them shipped to the school, over the summer holiday – clearly marked with your child’s name. Some guardians will purchase items for you if part of their service package.
