My name is Alison Scully, and I am the Home School Community Liaison in O’ Connells Primary Boys School and St. Vincent’s Boys School.

I want to welcome you and your boy to our school and hope that you have many happy years here!

Throughout the year, I will be running classes and courses for parents, and inviting parents into class to do some activities with their child. Classes are a great way to chat to other parents, learn a new skill and have some fun! I encourage you to even try it once. Please let me know if you are interested in coming to a class 😊

Keep an eye out in your son’s school bag for notes about upcoming classes/school events, and on the parent’s noticeboard in the parents’ room (Room 1).

Parents Council/coffee mornings

I will be hosting coffee mornings for parents throughout the year, which is a great way for you to meet other parents and bring topics for discussion to myself! Texts and notes will be sent so make sure phone numbers are up to date!
