We have received a number of requests from parents keen to view our school having been unable to attend our previous open days or school tour.  In order to facilitate parents in this position, there will be a final opportunity to visit Knockbreda Nursery and join a short tour of the school on Thursday 24th January from 1.30-2.00pm.   Please note that this tour is for parents/ carers only; children should not attend.

It would be appreciated if any new parents who plan to attend could contact the School Office on 02890 401567 to let us know.
