The CBS has now closed permanently.

We have amalgamated with St. Joseph’s Girls school in New Ross to form a new school called the Edmund Rice Senior School.

The new school address is Castlemoye, New Ross and the telephone number is 051 421585.

The school e-mail is newrossprimary@gmail.com and the Principal Brian MacMahon can be contacted at 0868326316.

The new school building isn't ready as yet so in September and October the Edmund Rice School will operate from the old St. Joseph's Girls' School building in Michael Street. We hope to move into the new buildings in November. 

The school office will open for business on Tuesday 16th. August.

Pupils return to school on Tuesday 30th. August.

Uniforms are available from the Cloth Hall in South Street and from Kennedy's Drapery in North Street. 

No special footwear is required. 

A Book Lease Scheme will operate next year. This will cost €40 per family and thsi covers the cost of ALL books and a full ste of copies.
