As a parent/guardian of a child enrolled in our school, you are an automatic member of our Parents Association. Your ideas and support are important in helping to make the Parents Association in our school a success.

The Parents Association meet every 8-10 weeks during the school year. Each year, we organise meetings, talks, social events and fundraisers. These are a means of getting to know new people while at the same time contributing significantly to the social life of the school.

The Parents Association are always keen to have new members on the committee. Please contact our Chairperson, Ray Shannon, if you wish to find out more.

  • School starts at 9.20 am.

  • Junior & Senior Infants finish at 2 pm.

For September, Junior Infants finish at 12.30 pm, as it is important for the pupils to settle into their new environment.

Please Note:


The school doors open at 9.20 am.


Where children are dropped off before this time, parents/guardians must be aware that there is no supervision prior to this time. The school is responsible for children during school hours only.

As a safety measure, when dropping off or collecting children from school, parents/guardians are asked to enter and exit the schoolyard through the bottom gate.

Parking spaces are limited. Please do not park in the teachers car park or in the bus bay. We encourage all Parents / Guardians to be extra careful when walking their children to and from the car and when manoeuvring their cars.

We promote a healthy eating policy for all our students. All students must bring healthy lunches. No sweets or crisps are allowed. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are sugar-free. Thursday and Friday students are permitted to bring one small bar.


We remind parents to be aware of the high sugar content in some types of yoghurt snacks and fruit-based drinks. We encourage all students to include fruit and vegetables in their lunches.

All children who are due to start Junior Infants in Scoil Mhólainge and who have been baptised in the Parish will receive a registration form directly from the school via siblings or in the post for new families. This is usually sent out at the beginning of the year in which the child is due to start.

If the child was not baptised in the parish or you have not received a registration form in the post please contact the school at (051)427305 or
