The start of school is recognised as a major transition in the life of a child and here in John Scottus National School we want to do everything we can to make that transition smooth and meaningful.
Each year we invite incoming Junior Infants classes to an induction afternoon. It is important for children to become comfortable in their new surroundings and to have an opportunity to meet their teacher. These two simple steps can assist children in easing into their new school environment.
A great way to get to know a new environment is to take a peek inside and see what a typical day is like. You may like to show this video to your child before they start school.

Each year we have a Parent Information Evening for parents who have enrolled their children for the following September, as well as a Junior Infant induction afternoon typically each May.
