Pupil Insurance

At the beginning of the school year RNS Parents’ Association arranges insurance cover (Brennan Education Personal Accident Scheme) for pupils whose parents/carers wish to avail of it.

The cost this year is €10.10 per pupil (scheme 1, 24 hour cover, optional*).

In order to collect forms and monies in a safe and efficient way members of the PA will take payment from parents over two school drop-offs and one school pick-up in the coming days;

Wednesday 7th October from 08.30 to 09.15 and

Friday 9th October from 08.30 to 09.15 and afternoon from 13.00 to 14.45.

The payment table will be set up at the roundabout at the school (past the main school gates). Consent forms must be filled and signed by every parent/carer availing of the scheme for their child/children. We will have forms at the payment table but please bring your own pen and have exact change (in CASH) only. In order to save time, parents can print the attached form, fill in the details, sign it, and drop it with the payment in the box we will have set up on the day.

Thanks and regards,

Lucy Deering and Claire Mansfield

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, our stores have been closed since March 16th, and we re-opened on June 8th, in accordance with public health guidelines. As we re-open our doors our shops will look very different. It will be a new working and shopping environment for everyone. For back-to-school 2020/21, uniforms will be available to purchase online and also in-store. For the health and safety of our customers and staff, we would ask, where possible, that uniforms would be purchased online.

ONLINE SHOP: www.ofarrellschoolwear.com

Our online store is fully operational and open year round. Orders are usually processed and dispatched within 2-5 working days, with free delivery on orders over €50.00.  A standard delivery charge of €5.00 applies to all orders under €50.00. We fully understand that an incorrect size may be ordered. Don’t worry. If this happens please email us at info@ofarrellschoolwear.com with your preferred sizes and we will reserve these for you. We have an extended returns policy due to Covid-19

IN-STORE

Our shops are currently operating on an Appointment Only Basis for 1st year secondary fittings until Saturday July 4th.  From Monday July 6th normal hours will resume. To maintain social distancing, we will be implementing the following measures:

  • Social distancing within the store and while queuing outside
  • Limiting the number of customers in-store (this will unfortunately result in longer queuing times)
  • Our opening hours may vary to facilitate deep cleaning
  • Request each customer to use the available hand sanitizer upon entry.
  • Staff will be wearing a face shield/face covering
  • Each customer will have a staff member allocated to them for the duration of their visit in order to assist them, in the most efficient manner possible
  • If not shopping alone, we would ask parents/guardians, where possible, to bring as small a family unit as possible to the store.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience with these new measures during the Covid-19 pandemic

Stay safe,

The O’Farrell Schoolwear Team

Farewell 6th Class

I would like to take this opportunity to wish 6th class the best of luck as they move on to secondary school. They have spent 8 fantastic years with us here in Rolestown.

But I hope that the experience of this last term had allowed them to learn that their school was “not just a building containing a series of classrooms where lessons are held, tests are sat and homework is corrected. A school is so much more than that.

They have been a wonderful class to have in the school and now as their primary school days come to an end they can leave strong and confident and ready to take on the next challenges life will bring.

Wishing you all a happy summer and all the best in your new schools!
