Friday May 3rd is a staff development day, which means there are no classes for students, and the school is closed on Monday the 6th of May for the bank holiday. School reopens as normal on Tuesday morning. Third and Sixth Year students are advised to use the time well for study for the Junior and Leaving Cert, and non-exam classes are reminded that they too can use their time to prepare for their end of year exams.
