Supplies for Junior Infants

The following is a list of materials which your child will need for use in school. These can be put in a pencil case of your child’s choice for their first day at school. These items will be for use in school only. Your child will need other supplies (pencils and colours) for home use.

  • 2 Tripod pencils (image below)
  • Eraser
  • Pencil sharpener (with larger slot to fit tripod pencil-image below)
  • A packet of Twistable colours (please label each of these with your child’s name)
  • A glue stick
  • Craft scissors (please ensure scissors can cut paper & card-image below)

It is vital that all supplies and uniform are labelled with your child’s name. You can write the name on the equipment or purchase labels online from companies such as 


We encourage a schoolbag that is big enough to carry an A4 size plastic folder. A backpack type bag is encouraged rather than wheelie bags. Wheelie bags are a trip hazard in schools. 


We encourage your child to wear shoes with Velcro fastenings as laces are very difficult for Junior Infant pupils.


We support healthy eating in Nenagh C.N.S. and encourage parents to provide a healthy lunch for their children each day. We also partner with a local company called the Lunch Bag who deliver pre-ordered lunches to the school. Parents can register for the service on their website and order lunch for the child to be delivered. Further information is available on their website,
