Last Day of School

On Friday 28/05/2021 our students will leave school for their summer holidays. This is a time when students like to wait around for friends outside the school and to congregate in friendship groups. To ensure that everyone remains safe, on this the last day of school, we will allow students to leave by Year-Group in a staggered process. Below are the times that students will leave the school. Please have a conversation with your students regarding staying safe on the last day.

TY Graduation

Huge thanks to Ger Leahy and Laura Mullins who ensured that our TY students were able to enjoy a graduation ceremony with a difference this year. True to form our TY Team took a challenging situation and made it a great experience for our students. Well done to all.

Thank You

I would like to express my sincere thanks to each and every staff member here in Coláiste Pobail Setanta and to our Parents, Guardians and Families. Without the support of their families, our students would have succumbed to the pressures of remote teaching and the return to school a long time ago. The many obstacles that tried to come between your children and their educational experience in CPS this year were overcome with the help and collaboration of our parents and guardians working closely with our teachers. I would like to wish all our families a safe and refreshing summer so that we can all come together again in our College at the start of the next academic year.

On behalf of all the staff in Coláiste Pobail Setanta, thank you and take care.
