1 I have to leave school because of an appointment with the dentist or doctor, a music exam etc?
Bring a note from a parent or guardian asking permission for you to leave school, stating the reason. Show this note to the Principal or the Vice Principal immediately after assembly. They will sign it and you can then show it to the teacher whose class you need to get out of. On the way out of school you should go to the office and say that you have a note to leave school. The secretary will add your name to the sign out book and take your note.
2 I feel unwell?
If you are in a classroom, tell the teacher. If your teacher is sending you to the Medical Room he/she will give you a note for the Secretary. If this happens during break or lunch, tell the School Secretary.
3 I lose something?
Retrace your steps. Having thoroughly checked, then report the loss to your form teacher. If you lose your dinner ticket pass report the loss to Ms Edgar in the school office and she will arrange for you to have school dinner. If you find something, such as a purse or pencil case, you should hand this in to the office.
4 An after school activity has been cancelled.
There is a payphone available in the school office so that you can phone home and make arrangements. (Keep 50p in your blazer, and a contact number.) You should not attempt to contact parents directly - mobile phones are not permitted.
5 I have been absent and am returning to school?
Bring a letter from a parent or guardian explaining why you were absent, to your form teacher.
6 I'm late?
Report immediately to the school office for registration.
  7 I travel home by bus?
Your form teacher will tell you where to queue up on the first morning.
8 I am not participating in P.E.?
You must bring an excuse note from an adult in your home outlining the reason.
9 I am sent to the Staff Room on a message?
Knock the door and wait outside for a teacher to answer.
10 The Principal enters my classroom?
Pupils are expected to stand up as a matter of courtesy and respect.
11 I have any other problems?
Talk to your form teacher.
12 I am worried about something?
Whether inside or outside school, speak to someone you trust. It can be your form teacher or year head or a buddy mentor. Or you can complete a referral for the school counsellor. Mrs Murphy in Room 2 is the Designated Child Protection Teacher. Deputy Designated Teachers are Mr McAleese (the Principal) and Miss McCollum. 
13 I have forgotten my lunch or money for the canteen?
Don't panic. Go to the office and a meal voucher can be obtained. You should bring money from home the next day.
14 I am finding work difficult?
Let your class teacher know. It might be very easily fixed so don't let the issue build up. The things we work hardest for are often the most satisfying when we achieve success.
15 I am being bullied, or I see someone else being bullied?
Let your Form Teacher know. Or if you speak to your Buddy Mentor they will speak to your Form Teacher with you on your behalf. Bullying behaviour will not be tolerated.

!! Remember, if in any doubt or difficulty, ask an older pupil or teacher !!
!! There will always be someone to help !!
