Find out everything going on in the school right here!!






Dear Parents/ Guardians,


It has come to our attention that a child in our school, in Junior Infants, has a severe peanut and nut allergy.  This allergic reaction (anaphylactic shock) can occur through ingestion of peanut/ nut products, cross contamination and breathing peanuts in the air.  There will be an adrenaline pen on the premises in the event of the child suffering an allergic reaction.


Since this condition can be life threatening, we are asking for your help in minimizing the risk to this child by:


a)      NOT giving children peanuts in school lunches.

b)      NOT giving peanut butter sandwiches, other spreads containing nuts such as Nutella and snacks/ bars containing nuts or labelled "may contain nut traces" in school lunches.

c)      Asking children NOT to share their lunches.


Due to the severity of the problem, it is important that ALL parents carry out the suggested measures and reduce the risk of allergic reaction to this child.


We thank you for your co-operation.


Yours sincerely,
















Dear Parents,

 We are looking for help with the head lice situation here in the school.There are reports of head lice on a continuous basis.


We are asking all families to please help to reduce the spread of head lice through the school.

We here at the school can only notify parents of reports made to us.  We are relying on you to take action against head lice and treat your child/rens hair

The treatment process of the hair can vary depending on which product you are using and we ask that you follow the process exactly in order to ensure that all traces of head lice are removed from children's hair.

Above is a guideline from the HSE on dealing with head lice.  This can only be done in the home and therefore we ask you to check and comb through your child/rens hair regularly - every couple of days.

We appreciate your co-operation on this issue and we know that it is frustrating for everyone involved.

Many thanks for your continued support.


St. Brendan's N.S.
