Please be advised of a large pool of water at the Belgree Gate entrance to the Park near the school. With recent heavy rain, the children can get their feet wet on the way to school.

Hand Washing
(205) Wednesday, October 15, 2014





Scoil Naomh Lucáis





14th October 2014


Dear Parents,


A circular issued from the Health Service Executive stressed the importance of hand washing to prevent the spread of germs in schools.


The teachers have encouraged the children to follow the “SUDS” hand washing brochure, which is displayed in each classroom, in order to implement the hand hygiene programme.


Additionally, from Wednesday 16th, I request that each child brings to school their own hand towel or face cloth to enhance the hand washing programme.


Children will keep their own hand towel or face cloth in their bag, preferably in a plastic zip lock bag for hygienic reasons. The hand towel needs to be changed regularly.


For hygienic reasons the hand towel need to be used solely by one child and not shared with any other child in the class.


Please discuss general hygiene matters with your child at home e.g. handwashing, using the toilet, coughing , sneezing, using a handkerchief  etc


Thank you for helping to keep us all healthy.

Credit Union Scheme for the children
(200) Friday, September 19, 2014

Many Thanks to Ann Rice for co-ordinating the scheme below.





Dear Parent / Guardian


St. Luke’s N.S. has developed a School Saving Scheme within our school. We believe saving is a great habit to encourage in the pupils from an early age.

Community Credit Union will be operating the School Saving Scheme on our behalf. Each pupil who opens an account will receive a free gift and the Credit Union will also lodge the first 5 Euro into a Share account in the name of the child.

If you missed our sign up day, you can still join the scheme at the Community Credit Union office in The Blanchardstown Centre. Bring along the Completed Application From (included in pack) along with the following Documents and inform the credit union that you want to join  the St. Luke’s N.S. School Saving Scheme.

  • Identification:                   e.g. pupils Passport or Birth Cert.
  • Verification of address:                e.g. Utility Bill or Bank Statement etc
  • Verification of PPS number:       European Health Insurance Card or Medical Card etc

(See pack for further information)

Credit Union Staff will be at the school every Wednesday during the school term to collect money from pupils who have joined St. Luke’s N.S. School Saving Scheme.

Scoil Naomh Lucais


16th September 2014.


Dear Parents/Guardians,


As the days pass by I am sure that you are all beginning to settle back into the new school year – it is a hectic time for all.


I would like to take the opportunity to welcome you all back to school and to wish all our pupils, parents , teachers and staff members a very successful new year. A very special Céad Míle Failte is extended to all our new pupils and new teachers who have started with us for the academic year 2014 – 2015.


The school continues to grow. This year there are two 6th classes in the school for the first time.


“ Meet and Greet” opportunities will start the week commencing the 29th September. These meetings are a chance for teachers and parents to become acquainted and to gain valuable insight for the coming school year. A further letter will follow indicating the date, time and venue for your own child’s “Meet and Greet”. I look forward to meeting you on the day.


Please make arrangements with the class teacher for the following payments:

  1. Class materials
  2. Pupil Insurance


The payment for class materials is fundamental to the effective management of the class. I would request that all payments are made by the 30th September 2014.


The Pupil Insurance Scheme is invaluable. Children are covered by the insurance scheme once the payment has been made. There is no cover until the premium has been paid. Please arrange payment promptly.


The CreditUnionhave commenced a savings initiative for the children in the school. Teaching children to save and be prudent with money is a worthwhile life skill. Please encourage your children to be involved n the savings scheme.


The school website is a valuable source of updated information – please check in regularly with the site.


The secretary is generally available, in the school office, from 9.00p.m. – 2.40p.m. with the exception of 9.00a.m. – 9.30a.m.


There are a few initial thoughts, overleaf, that I would like to share with you , to assist in the efficient running of the school - please read these very carefully in the best interest of your child’s education
