Information Meeting
Thank you all for attending our Parent’s Information Meeting last week. Following the meeting, we have decided on the following

  • Social Media: We are looking into setting up a social media account for the school in addition to a school website. If you have any issue with your child’s image appearing on such a platform please inform the school, as we require full support for this venture to go ahead.
  •  Open Day: We will plan an Open Day at Cranny National School for prospective students in Term 2.
  • Sign: A sign will be ordered over the mid-term break and will be erected once
    permission is sought.
  •  Brochure/Website: These are both in the process of being updated.
