In order to facilitate drop off and pick up times at St. Columba’s Boys School and St. Columba’s Girls School, the following concessions have been agreed. Traffic wardens will not patrol the areas outside the schools between 8.30 – 9.30am Monday to Friday and 12noon to 3.00pm Monday to Friday. This will be done on a trial basis only and Cork County Council reserve the right to change this arrangement at any time.
Please note that it is school policy not to distribute birthday invitations through the school unless the boy’s whole class are invited. It can be very hurtful for a child who may be excluded and we ask you to distribute outside of school.
