Parents/guardians are actively discouraged form taking holidays outside of the above holiday schedule.  The school is obliged by law to inform the National Education Welfare Board when a pupil is absent for a total of 20 school days in one school year or where there is a concern about a pupil’s attendance.  There is a direct link between school absence and pupil progress.  Your co-operation with maintaining high attendance and punctuality is greatly appreciated.
