Built in 1913. Some repairs were carried out in 1965 but by the 1980’s it was in a dreadful condition.
Eventually refurbishment took place in 1991. New classrooms added to make 3 classrooms, staffroom and a Learning Support Room. A prefab was added in 2002 when Monaseed grew to a 5 teacher, 4 classroom teachers and a shared learning support teacher.
In 2008 two new state of the art classrooms were officially opened.
In 2012 another new classroom was added as the condition of the prefab was deteriorating rapidly.

School begins at 9.20 a.m. It is important that the children develop the habit of being punctual for school. Children who are in the yard prior to official assembly time are not the responsibility of any member of staff, but if children are in the yard prior to 9.20 a.m., they are expected to take their place in line. For safety reasons, pupils are expected to walk in the school yard.
Children are not allowed to enter the school building prior to 9.20 a.m. except on wet days when they may go to allocated waiting areas inside.
There is a short break at 11.00 a.m. Lunch break is from 12.30p.m. to 1.00 p.m. No glass bottles or cans please.
Junior and Senior Infant Classes are dismissed at 2.00 p.m. Who ever collects your child from school should try to be in the school-yard before dismissal time so as not to cause unnecessary anxiety to the child. All other classes are dismissed at 3.00 p.m.
In the event of a pupil being absent through illness or for any other reason, the class teacher should be informed by note on the pupil's return to school.
When it is necessary for a pupil to leave school early, a note must be sent to the class teacher. Parents/guardians are asked to call personally to the classroom to collect the child. Any person collecting a child on behalf of the parent/guardian should present written authorization with a telephone number.
Children should have their child’s names on their coats and other personal property such as school books, copies, lunch boxes etc.
Please do not give your child sweets, chocolate, fizzy drinks or crisps for lunch. Lunch should provide one third of your child's food requirements for the day. The most effective way to plan a healthy lunch is to include one food from each of the food groups - one piece of fruit, milk/yogurt, two slices of bread and meat/poultry/cheese.
