MILLSTREET PRESENTATION N.S. return to school on next Monday (31st Aug) and parents are asked to please consult the National School website ( for return to school procedures.


During the past week a lot of people have said that we didn’t realise what a good life we had prior to March of this year and that big problems then don’t seem to be that important now.  While this may be true, we now have a new way of life to adjust to and accept.  This can also be challenging and hard for people to accept as everything we do is now restricted by numbers and regulations.  The coming week will see our schools return in this new environment so we offer a special thought for teachers, pupils and their families. May they be protected in the days, weeks and months ahead.

We pray to our Lady to give courage to those who are apprehensive, care for the weak and be patient with everyone”.
