  1. Why can’t we stay in our base classrooms for lunch if we are allowed to stay there at break? Why do we have to go to the lunch room?

    • Bags are not allowed in the luch room as it is a rule made by Mr.Cregan.They are taken off you as it is breaking the rules and the amount of bags brought in would be dangerous.Also, putting bags on the tables is unhygienic.

  2. Do you guys have a suggestion section, if not I would like to suggest you to make one if it isn’t too much bother, it’s just a good idea 🙂

      • Well probably for the school, because some people don’t know where the suggestion box in the school is or just don’t want to put a suggestion and would find it easier to do so online 🙂 You could also have suggestions for TopButton, but that’s brilliant already! 🙂

        • Yeah I agree.. I think sometimes people find it a bit embarrassing writing out a suggestion and having to trek all the way down to the box.. if there was an online way of making suggestions as well, I’m sure more people would leave them.

  3. There was an announcement today about a school calender. I didn’t make it to the library and was wondering what kind of calender it is with pictures from school or………

    • The yearbook art committee are looking for student art pieces and they are also looking for art that they will put on the cover. You can hand ant art pieces to Ms. Enright or Ms. O Meara. Good luck with your drawing!

    • TopButton is holding a seachtain na Gaeilge competition. The aim of the competition is to think of a new great fresh idea that can be used in Laurel hill during the year or during Seachtain na gaeilge next year that will encourage students to actually use the Irish that they have. You can leave your idea at the bottom as a comment with your name or you can also email it to with Seachtain na Gaeilge competition in the subject line

  4. Are we allowed to hang up posters in the school for the elections for student council, for example posters that say ‘VOTE FOR ____’ ?? And what other things are we allowed to do around the school, asking people to vote for you?

TopButton wants to hear what you think?
