Junior/Senior Infants – each child will receive a preprinted template to colour in.

Rang 1 to Rang 6 – each child will receive a blank template so they can design their own card.

Once the drawing is complete, the card company will produce a sample card which will be given to each child along with an order form for you to complete and return to the school along with the payment.  Please note there is no obligation to buy cards.

Please note by completing the order form you are authorising the card company to hold your child’s name for the sole purpose of producing the cards. Once the order is complete this information will be deleted.

20 cards          €15.00 (based on 20 of same design only)

30 cards          €20.00 (based on 30 of same design only)


In order to get the best quality card here are a few tips:

·         Make bright colourful designs that fill the box on the template provided

·         Use paint, markers, pens, crayons and pencils

·         Use the template the correct way up

·         Use Highlighters

·         Use pale colouring pencils/crayons

·         Use glitter or gel pens

·         Use Luminous gel pens/pencils

·         Fold the drawing or use staples/sellotape/glue


If for whatever reason you require a replacement template they will be available from Joan during school office hours. However, the deadlines above will still apply.

Please do not photocopy the template as this will reduce the quality of the print.

If you have any questions please contact any member of the Parents Council or email
