Punctuality to School

Coláiste Abbáin endeavours to cultivate positive, beneficial and respectful practices among its student body – practices and qualities that will enhance employability and make a significant contribution to successful and meaningful participation in society. Punctuality is one of these.

Lack of punctuality is unacceptable and disrespectful behaviour. In the school context it interrupts the instructional rhythm of the teacher and concentration of students. This degree of time wastage is highly significant to the teacher, the class grouping and the late student. Responding to serious and persistent late-coming consumes large amounts of valuable administrative time and effort.

Our Students Council have discussed this issue and have agreed on an appropriate sanction for lateness

On the day a student is late they will be required to attend detention during reflection filling in a penalty sheet for lateness. One written note from a parent /guardian per term will be accepted for genuine lateness.

This will commence on 14th January 2019. School starts at 8.52 with breakfast available from 8.10 onwards.  Class Reps and Prefects will communicate this to the student body.






Congratulations to our U15 boys soccer team who beat Enniscorthy VEC 3 -2. All students played their part.  Philip Kearns and Conor Murphy played exceptionally well. Goals socred by Jamie Fitzpatrick, Conor Murphy and Donny McDonald. We're looking forward to the semi-finals.





For many of us the sound of Christmas carols evokes memories of family traditions and symbolises the spirit of Christmas. This was very evident at the Coláiste Abbáin Parents Association Christmas Concert which took place on Monday, December 10th at 7.30pm in St Abbans Church Adamstown. Special guests on the night included Dermot Hynes, Darragh Doyle, Tomás Whelan, Orla Quirke and Senan Lillis. The New Ross and District Pipe band blew us away with their powerful rendition of ‘Come All Ye Faithful’ and ‘Highland Cathederal’. The Coláiste Abbáin school choir, band and trad group were fantastically prepared by Ms Quirke and Ms Power. The talent in the school community is overwhelming.

The grande finale ‘The Drummer Boy’ concluded a night of marvellous entertainment and festive cheer. Students in Coláiste Abbáin are currently preparing for their pantomime production ‘Cinderella’ which will be showcased on 23rd-25th January. The school community are very excited about this event following the success of last year’s production.




Transition year students got to go icesakting in Wexford town on Friday 7th December. Thank you to their teachers for organising this experience.  Well deserved after all their success in the Metal Health competition and also their hard work in preparing for the Craft Fair.
