New texting APP
From September Scoil Chaitríona will use the KOMEER app to send text messages to parents. This is available if you have a smartphone. This is to reduce the very high costs of texting for the school.
If you have a smartphone, both you and the school can save money when you download the Komeer App from the app store (Android and iPhone devices).
*** We’re aiming to get 100% of parents using the app – please help us achieve this ***
Instructions to download your Komeer App and Sign Up to your school:

Once you’ve downloaded the app, our texts will be delivered to you as instant app messages, saving us the cost of texting.
