A Big Warm Wel­come to all our new Ju­nior in­fants to Scoil Naomh Eirc. We were so happy to wel­come four­teen beau­ti­ful new pupils to the school on the first Septem­ber. All the chil­dren have set­tled in very well and are get­ting used to the long day at school. They are mak­ing friends and have adapted very quickly to the school rou­tine. They had a busy week as they played, ex­plored, sang and lis­tened to sto­ries with their teacher Mrs O’Car­roll. Hope­fully, their time in Scoil Naomh Eirc will be both a very en­joy­able and suc­cess­ful experience.
