Have a great summer and thanks for all the support over the last year.


Last Friday the 19th of June saw LSP round of its 25th year celebrations with a wonderful Yard Party. All the children at LSP were thoroughly entertained by Puppeteers from Honest Arts,  Aaron Lewis AKA Aaron the Balloon Man, Leon the Magician, and a troupe of face painters. There were giant games of Snakes and Ladders, Checkers, Snap, and hopscotch in which the children themselves were the pieces. Chalk drawing which started out on the yard ground rapidly moved to the walls of the yard to the delight of the children. Treats included a bag of party nibbles, popcorn, candy floss  and to top it all off an ice cream van handed out 99’s to all.

A fabulous celebration was had by all. Thanks to all the parent volunteers who turned up on the day and helped to turn the yard into a truly festive zone. For all the commitment and hard work, it is very much appreciated and was reflected in the delight of all the children and the teachers.

To the future and beyond with Limerick School Project


The Limerick School Project, National School, has launched a new book,Limerick School Project – The Next 25 Years and Beyond’. Compiled, written and illustrated by the children of the Limerick School Project under the guidance of their teachers, this book imagines school life in the future.

The celebrations this year of the Limerick School Project’s 25th anniversary has prompted many discussions about the lives of children at that time, compared to the present, and in turn, to the lives of the children of the future. The result of these discussions is the creation of a book that every child in the school has contributed to, in drawings, poems and stories.


Commenting on the book ‘Limerick School Project – The Next 25 Years and Beyond’ Principal Orla McCoy said:

this is much more than a collection of drawings and stories by the current pupils in the school – it embodies the energy and diversity of the pupils and teachers past and present, a vibrancy and imagination that bodes well for the future of LSP and equality based education in the city.


Jason Nash, Limerick College of Art and Design, was responsible for the overall design of the book, said:

“It’s always a lot of fun when working with children, they have very imaginative and creative minds…..coming up with great ideas and wacky inventions. That’s ideal for making a fun and exciting book and makes my work as a designer much more interesting.”


In 1986 the concept of a ‘multi-denominational, child-centred, co-educational and democratically run’ school was set in motion when a group of foresighted parents met in Cruises’ Hotel and the Limerick School Project was born. The school grew, over the years, from 56 pupils and 2 teachers to its present population of 220 pupils and 13 teachers. Now well established in O’Connell Avenue, during this school year of 2014-2015, the school is delighted to be celebrating 25 years of LSP.


‘Limerick School Project – the next 25 Years and Beyond’ is available for purchase for €10 from the school secretary 061 412994. All proceeds go towards the cost of printing the book. For further information about Limerick School project visit www.limerickschoolproject.ie




an nuacht – May 28th

School is closed Monday 1st & Tuesday 2nd June – June Bank Holiday

Safety in the Yard

Only staff & after school coaches are permitted to drive into the school yard. They all have been asked to drive cautiously and to be alert.  However, if you stop to have a chat with other parents when collecting your child please ensure they stay with you. Ball playing and chasing games are not permitted in the yard after school for safety reasons.

Important ET News

LSP is not ‘multi-denominational’ anymore. It is ‘Equality-based’

In consultation with members, the Board of Directors of Educate Together has taken an important decision for the future of the organisation – Educate Together will no longer describe itself as a ‘multi-denominational’ organisation but will use the term ‘Equality-based’.

At different points in the history of Educate Together, the term ‘multi-denominational’ has been opposed by families, teachers and pupils who do not identify themselves in religious terms. A working group established by the organisation found that its use implicitly suggests a religious focus that has become confusing to parents, teachers and general public. The decision to discontinue the use of ‘multi-denominational’ does not change the standing commitment of the organisation to “equality of access and esteem to children irrespective of their social, culture or religious background”.

Reminder: please bring in stamped addressed envelopes to class teacher for end of year reports

LSP Sports Day 2015

We will hold the annual LSP Sports Day in Mary I Sports Arena tomorrow, Friday May 29th. As always we have lots of parents helping and we look forward to a fun filled day, whatever the weather.

Internet Safety Meeting June 5th @7pm

The BOM has arranged for Dr. Maureen Griffin, B.A. M.A. Ph.D, Forensic Psychologist to talk to LSP community on the topic of social media.

Most children have daily access to the internet and their safety is a big concern. Dr. Griffin will talk about Social Networking Sites, Chatting Online, Cyber-bullying, Mobile Phone Safety and Online Gaming.

These talks have been found to be very informative and practical and so popular with primary and secondary schools that we are lucky to have been able to secure a date for LSP parents.

We need to have an idea of numbers attending for organisational purposes. Please let Louise know asap if you intend coming and if you want to avail of crèche/club facilities.

School Tour time is here again. Lots of classes will be heading off on buses and trains to different parts of the country for fun and games. Please take note of the class teacher’s guidelines on what / what not to bring on the day.

Rules are there to keep everyone safe and ensure a fun day for all.

Book Launch To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Limerick School Project we are delighted to announce the launch of our whole school book ‘Limerick School Project the Next 25 years and Beyond’ on Tuesday 9th June.  Every child in the school contributed to the book and it is a fantastic accomplishment as they are now published authors!! 

Thank you to all of the children and teachers for their hard work in creating this wonderful publication.  And a special word of thanks to BOM Parent Representative Sinead Wylde and Graphic Designer Jason Nash for their expertise in co-ordinating the project. 

The book will be on sale on the day and over the next few weeks.

All parents, family and friends are invited to attend the official launch in the Halla on Tuesday 9th June.  We will have details about the time of the launch and the book price very soon.

An Nuacht – 16th April 2015

April 16th, 2015

The photo above shows some Senior Infant children wearing their wonderful spring hats!


School is closed on Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th May.


Reminder: LSP 25th Year Anniversary Reunion, Saturday 18th April @ 6pm in school hall and afterwards in Dolan’s , Dock Road from 8pm onward. All present parents are welcome to come along, over 18’s only in Dolans.



School begins at 8.30 am and ends at 1.10pm for Junior and Senior Infants and 2.10pm for 1st – 6th classes.

This term we are going to concentrate on getting everyone in to school on time and allow classes to start promptly.

If you are someone who has been relaxed about being in school by 8.30 am please help by making an effort to improve on timekeeping.

School gates and doors are opened to the children at 8.30 a.m. and children go directly to classrooms.  From 1st class upwards there is no need to bring your child into the classroom unless you need to speak to the teacher. Any messages or forgotten lunches etc may be left at the office. This will allow all children to start work on time and without interruption.

The school can not accept responsibility for children arriving at school prior to 8.30 am.

The front door and back gate is locked at 9.00 am each day and access is gained by using the intercom. If you need to collect your child during school hours, please sign them out in the office.  It is advisable to inform your child’s class teacher if you will be collecting your child early.

From a Health and Safety point of view it is better that parents wait in the yard to collect children after school. This prevents disruption to classes before 2.10 pm and we are better able to monitor who collects children. There is always a staff member on duty in the yard and at the front door at 2.10 pm. Any children still waiting at 2.20 pm will be brought inside and a phone call will be made to the parent/guardian. Although some staff members may be on the premises, meetings are scheduled and the school cannot accept responsibility for children after 2.10 pm. After school club coaches are responsible for children who take part in after school activities.


Dr. Maureen Griffin, B.A. M.A. PhD Forensic Psychologist

Dr. Maureen Griffin has been invited by our Board of Management to talk to our parents about Internet Safety on Tuesday 28th April 2015.

She will speak about social networking, online gaming, cyber-bullying, and mobile phone safety and will provide an overview of what is currently popular among students, what the potential dangers are and practical advice on how to protect children when they are online or using their mobile phone. The talk is not about blocking content online; it is more about teaching children how to be responsible when online, by making parents aware of the dangers and highlighting some practical tips.

This could be the most important meeting that you attend this year.


Due to ongoing requests we are putting in a final order for ‘Magic of the Musical’s DVDs next week. Please give your name and €15 to Louise on or before Tuesday 21st April.


New 6 week Arts & Crafts course, starting next week. €50 fee. Please contact Tara 087 7455202 to book your child a place.

Spelling Bee

The second round is on in St Paul’s N.S. in Dooradoyle this morning. Clodagh Hannan is representing LSP. We wish her all the best.


We would like to remind parents of the procedures for making a complaint in the Limerick School Project. Below is an excerpt from the Parents Booklet we give all parents when their child joins the Limerick School Project for the first time.

 Complaints Procedure:  If you have a query or concern regarding a school matter relating to your child, this is the procedure to follow:

1) Always go to the class teacher first.  In most cases, concerns can be resolved at that level.  The teacher will inform the principal of any serious complaints.

2) If, at that stage, you feel that the issue has not been resolved, you are welcome to make an appointment with the Principal to discuss the matter.

3) If you still feel unhappy with the outcome, you can then bring your concerns to the Board of Management of the school.  In order to do this, the concerns must be put in writing to the Chairperson of the BOM.


Everyone in 4th class would like to wish Alex Breathnach the very best as he goes on stage in the Lime Tree Theatre as ‘Gavroche’ from Les Miserables with the ‘MIDAS’ Company. As they say in acting ‘break a leg’.


Design a hat parade will take place at 10.30am tomorrow. We’re hoping every pupil will join in (and parents are welcome too!).


Reminder: please return your POD forms if you have forgotten to do so already. Any parent who refuses to fill in the form must put this in writing to the principal, stating the reasons why this is so and the letter must be signed and dated.


‘Magic of the Musical’s dvds can still be ordered. Please give your name and €15 to Louise. DVDs will arrive after Easter break.

Seachtain na Gaeilge:

Tráth na gCeist took place yesterday in the halla for both junior and senior classes. The whole school took part and the teams were mixed so everyone could work together. The pupils on the winning team were:  (Senior Team) Jasper Fitzgerald (V), Harry Lynch (VI), Rubin McCarthy (III) & Sunisa O’Connor (IV). (Junior Team): Maksim Galinovskis (II), Jasmine Rasch-Foster (JI), Ray Frizelle (I) & Masha Galinovska (SI).


Green School Assessment: Last Thursday we had our Green Schools Assessment. Our committee did us proud when they met the assessor and explained all the measures we have taken to be as water aware in our school as possible. Jane, the assessor, visited some classes to have a little chat with them as to what they have learned about water conservation over the past few years. The assessment concluded with the whole school singing our water song, as composed by last years Rang a Sé. We also sang our energy song and Jane was very impressed with our whole school approach to environmental care and awareness. We have also forwarded all the paperwork to An Taisce so we now have to wait and see what the results of all our hard work will be, though all the comments from the assessor were most favourable. All things going well this will be the third green schools flag LSP will attain,  Waste and Waste Management, Energy and now hopefully Water. Transport will be the next theme that the school will be working towards. A big thank you to the committee, to the sub committees, to the teachers and classes for working on environmental lessons and to the staff on the green schools committee. Being a green school does mean a serious investment of time from staff on the committee but hopefully, through exposure to environmental experiences such as these, we are helping cultivate an innate interest and respect within our children, the future generation, of the importance of being environmentally aware global citizens.


We welcomed 20 teacher training students and their group leaders from Philadelphia last week. They were spending some time in Mary Immaculate college and paid a visit to almost all the classes and spoke to the children. They were very impressed with the children, their questions and their project work.


The DVDs of the concert have been ordered and we will let you know as soon as possible when they will be delivered.


Basketball matches were held last week between LSP and St. Pauls NS, Dooradoyle and LSP and Gaelscoil Sáirséal.

Last Tuesday we had a match against St Pauls. We played at home. I played on the 1st & 3rd quarter. We won 18-16 and I scored a layup. It was an intense match. All in all it was a good day, I really enjoyed it. David O’Donovan (VI)

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 niamh@limerickchildcare.ie for booking.

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.
