About Us

Our school’s vision can be summed up in three words: Happy, Safe, Learn. Since the school opened in 2008, we have strived to make sure that everyone within our community feels part of that vision. We believe that everyone – that is all children, all families and all staff – have the right to be happy, be safe and be able to learn.

On Friday 27th October we invite parents/grandparents to come and join us at Autumnfest - a celebration of festivals such as Eid, Halloween, Sim Chat Torah, and Diwali, and a fun way to end the term. It is a whole school event which includes games, arts and crafts, treats, lots of silly costumes (by parents, teachers and children alike!) and a lot of fun is had by all. We would love as many parents as possible to come and join us. We will have it set up for Friday morning but we need people to help supervise activities throughout the day from 8:50am until approx. 2pm. For any further information please contact the parents committee at parents@carloweducatetogether.ie - we look forward to seeing you soon! ... See MoreSee Less
