The school will be closed all day today, Monday 16th October, due to the severe weather conditions forecast for the whole of Ireland.

Met Eireann (the Irish weather people) have extended their red alert to the whole of the country in the last couple of hours. Apparently, we will see the worst weather today that we have seen in 50 years due to Hurricane Ophelia.

People are advised not to travel and to stay indoors where possible, so we have decided to close the school for the whole day.

The school will reopen on Tuesday at 9am with classes running as normal.

If you were coming for a trial class today, please come tomorrow, Tuesday at the same time.

If you have a scheduled class today, you will not lose that class, but will be able to take it at another time instead.

To keep safe, you too should stay indoors if possible tomorrow and avoid travelling – it seems many bus services will be cancelled anyway.

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
