The first year Sports Induction Day will take place tomorrow, Friday 29th September from 9.28am until 1.40pm. Students may wear their P.E. gear in for the duration of the day.

Please note that they will have class as normal during period 1. We're hoping that the weather will remain fine and dry, so the students can get the most out of the activities that they will try.



  • 28th Sep 2023 9:01 am

As per our Mobile Phone policy, mobile phones are not permitted to be used by students in school. We ask all parents/guardians to support this policy. If you need to reach your child during the school day, please ring the school office at 014975458 or email stlouishs.rathmines@gmail.com and a message will passed on. School app messages must appear on the school app before 10am in order for us to process them during the day. If you have missed this window, please ring or email the school to inofmr us if you child needs to leave early. 

  • please do not contact your child directly in school because they should not be accessing their phones.
  • students are not permitted to contact parents/guardians directly during the school day on their own phones/devices.

There is no problem with students contacting school via the school office they are not feeling well. Their school devices are only to be used to support their learning in class. 

Studies have proven that when students cannot access their smartphones at all, they are more likely to focus on class material and school life and more likely to learn how to sustain their attention - a crucial skill in today's workplace. 

We would appreciate your full support in relation to this matter. Thank you.

Road Safety around St Louis High School

  • 6th Sep 2023 11:40 am

We would appreciate if you could discuss road safety matters with your child. There is currently a lot of construction traffic on Wynnefield Rd where a hotel is being built. As a result, the access roads to the school have a lot of parked large vans and construction traffic which can impede visuals for pedestrians. Some students are crossing roads whilst using their phones, or have their head phones on and are unaware of approaching traffic. Some cyclists are also not observing other traffic on the road and are arriving in to school without helmets. It is really important that students follow official road safety advice. We ask you to discuss this very serious safety issue with your child. We do not have the facility to store electric scooters in school and do not advise that students travel to school on scooters. 

We would appreciate your cooperation and support in this regard for the safety of all. Thank you.
