The full school uniform should be worn every day except for the days the girls have P.E.. Flat shoes or flat boots should be worn with the uniform and runners should be worn with tracksuit only. If your daughter has football, camogie or any other sports training after school, she should bring her gear to school and must change before training begins. She is not to wear her tracksuit unless her class has P.E. on the same day as training. 

All uniform items – jackets, lunchboxes, jumpers, sweatshirts, drinks bottles – must be labelled with your daughter’s name. We encourage responsibility but sometimes things get lost.
