School Holidays 2017/2018

Greetings!

On this page you’ll find the full list of school closures for the forthcoming academic year 2017/2018.

Every effort has been made to ensure that the list of closures is accurate so you may plan your holidays with confidence!

From time to time, the Department of Education and Skills arranges mandatory training days in areas such as the new Language Programme for Primary Schools.

Where these are proposed, we will inform parents as soon as possible.

In times of extreme weather conditions, we will endeavour to inform parents of any closures as soon as we can.

Thank you!
