Lockers remain the property of the school and management reserves the right to search lockers where there is reasonable belief re:  dangerous implements or illegal substances or as part of an investigation into theft of property.

1st and 2nd Year lockers will be allocated by the end of September as detailed in information letter. If a student does not use the locker appropriately the school reserves the right to withdraw the facility.

  1. School shoes must be ALL BLACK, no deviations will be accepted. School uniform is available at EXCEL Promotions, Six Cross Roads Business Park and Heroes, John Roberts Square.

Contact Phone Numbers and Absenteeism; It is becoming increasingly difficult to contact parents because of changing phone numbers. It is vital that we have a contact number for Parent/Guardian of every student so that in the event of illness or accident they can be contacted. No student will be given permission to leave the school unless contact can be made with a parent or a note has been provided.

We ask that if your son is absent or is going to be absent for any reason that you contact the school by 10.00am at 086-0404915/051-377378.
