Our school canteen is open before school, during break time and during lunchtime every day. It provides a variety of healthy options for our students at a very reasonable cost.

Junior students are not permitted to leave the school grounds during the school day. Our Senior students are permitted to go down town during lunchtime only.

Due to the proposed changes outlined by the Department of Education and Skills in Circular 0024/2016, it will be necessary to amend our school timetable from September 2017. Planning for this proposed change is underway and will be communicated to all parents in due course.
