General Advice for New Parents and Students



Advice for new parents and students 

The advice below is based on the experiences and questions of new parents over the last two years.  We hope you find it useful. Please email or phone us at 047 81422 ie if you have other questions.


School bags

Your daughter was assigned a locker in her first week in St Louis.  Books and bags can be stored in these lockers. However, as she is studying 10 subjects it is likely that a large number of books will have to be carried to and from school for homework and study.  We recommend that you purchase a strong light weight bag with good shoulder straps.  Best advice is that shoulder straps should be kept short so that the bag does not sit down too low on your daughter’s back.  The bag should be carried using both shoulder straps and not hanging from one shoulder as the bag is likely to be heavy.  PE bags should be soft sided so that they can be put into lockers easily.


Organising your day

Each day your daughter will have a large number of books, copies, Home Economics equipment, Art equipment and PE gear to bring to school. To help your daughter manage the requirements for each day we would advise that your daughter packs her bags each evening with all requirements for the following day. We strongly advise the girls not to carry unnecessary books and copies in their school bags throughout the school day.



Year Head and Tutors

Mrs Reilly and her first year tutors offer plenty of advice and support to the girls as they settle in to their new school community.
