School is closed on Monday 16th & Tuesday 17th March


Peace Proms

Our School choir performed in the Peace Proms last Saturday night in UL Arena. It was a great opportunity to sing with 23 other primary schools. We watched the different instruments in the orchestra being played as well as some soloists playing the violin, uilleann pipes and singing. All seats were sold out and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the performance.

Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland wrote:  ‘Huge thanks and congratulations to all school choirs who performed in Peace Proms at UL on Saturday. It was a fabulous day! Thank you for having your groups so well organised and prepared! The choirs were absolutely fantastic!! Please pass on our congratulations to them for their sparkling and brilliant performances!!’

From all the Peace Proms Team.


The launch for Carole Gurnett’s debut novel The Curtain Falls will take place at Dooradoyle Library on Thursday, March 12th. @ 7pm. All are welcome on the night! Carole’s two daughters are past pupils of the LSP and she is currently working in the After School Club.


The DVD of the Magic of the Musicals can be ordered up to next Friday 6th March. Each order must include €15 as we will only order the amount required.  Payment for the DVDs goes towards the cost of recording the concert and the sound system used.


Please let us know if your child will not be returning to LSP next year.


POD Update:

Filling in the POD form is now critical in that allocations will be based on the POD details given to DES.

DES Quote: From the 2016/2017 academic year, it is intended that teacher allocations and capitation grants will be made on the basis of POD data, and the previous basis for allocations, the National Annual School Census will cease operation from that point. Allocations for the School are based on the data received and therefore if parents do not respond the school may not get the learning support allocation we are entitled to. 


Childs jacket size 32-34 missing. It is a deep blue colour with green florescent piping, with ‘Dare to Be’ printed on it.



There are posters advertising First Aid training for parents around the school. Contact Niamh Lenihan 061 600918 or for booking.


LSP Parent Teacher Association News

  • There will be a meeting held on Thursday 19th March at 7pm on the pathway to seeking a Second Level Educate Together school in limerick. Parents are encouraged to attend as it is only through parental involvement that a strategy can be put in place to achieve the goal of a second level school for our children that builds on the ethos of their primary education
  • There was great feedback from the children and the staff regards the Tai Chi classes that were started last Thursday. The kids really enjoyed the learning activity.  The classes will continue for the next few weeks every Thursday.
  • The Playground Project started doing workshops with the children this week. The idea is to involve the children in ways that the playground space could be utilised through interactive workshops.  These ideas will be collated and incorporated into possibilities for the yard space as an interactive play/educational space.
  • The Plant and Cake Spring Fair will be held on the 15th May; we will be looking for parents to be involved through either baking cakes or donating plants/shrubs etc. More information to follow soon as planting will need to start in the near future so as to be ready for the fair.
