Virtual tours of St. Columba's

Open Morning

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to host our customary “Open Morning” at this current time.

We are however delighted to be able to share with you a virtual tour which we hope will give you a flavour of life at St. Columba’s and the fun that awaits your child/children.

We hope you'll join us in September 2021 and look forward to welcoming you to our amazing school!

Please access the tour on the following link.

Induction days

A meeting is held for parents of new starters mid June.

A parent handbook is available at the meeting.  Policies are available on request.

Free school meals and uniform application information is also available at the meeting or from the school office.


Reception and P.1 pupils are invited to a taster session mid June.

Reception pupils cannot start school until they turn 4 years of age.


Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to host our parents meeting for new starters.  Below is a short information session about starting school and the daily routines carried out during the school day.







All Reception and P.1 pupils and their parents go to the infant playroom on arrival the first morning, where a variety of activities will be set up for the children. 

All parents are asked to leave by 9.15am at the latest and to collect their children promptly at the arranged time.
