School Closed on Wednesday October 11th

Active School Flag

Two years ago Holy Family Senior School was awarded the Active School Flag for the many initiatives to promote physical activity and a healthier lifestyle in our school community. In the coming weeks we will be forming a new Active School Committee where children's ideas will be gathered to see how we can further energise the school day.


As a new school year begins we would like to welcome all our parents back, while also welcoming our new parents to the school. Our Home School Links Coordinators Barbara Buckley and Shane Griffin look forward to liaising with you over the coming year.
