Dear Parents /Guardians,

I hope you and your families are keeping well as the restrictions continue.

Thank you for using the website to guide you in your work with the children over the last few weeks.

As a school we have now switched to Aladdin Connect to enable easier communication with families. If you did not receive a code to access Aladdin Connect, please email the school at

scoilmhuirekk2@eircom.net as soon as possible.

All important school news, booklists reports etc.  will be sent via Aladdin Connect.

I would like to thank the staff for their tireless work in preparing work for the website and I know they will be delighted to engage with families on Aladdin.

Thanks also to the Board of Management for enabling the purchase of Aladdin Connect and the Parents’ Council for their unfailing support.

Keep safe and well

Dear Parents/Guardians

I hope you and your families are doing well. It is difficult to stay positive in these challenging times. I have met many families out and about (within 2km) and I am amazed by the courage and resilience of our wonderful children. The staff and I miss you all very much but we are delighted that everyone is well and keeping safe.

As a school we have invested a lot of money to enable easier communication with parents. We strongly encourage you to download Aladdin Connect so that you can hear all our school news during the closure. From 11th May, teachers will use Aladdin to set and correct work and keep in touch with families. Reports ,booklists etc will all be sent via Aladdin so it is in everyone’s interest to get connected,
