A Chairde,

As you know we use Vsware in GCM to monitor everything from attendance to academic performance.

We are now looking to broaden our use for Vsware and we have updated our account to allow new functionality.

At the moment when your son or daughter are absent due to illness or if they are going to be partially absent because of an appointment/bereavement and so on we receive this information via phone calls, emails and notes. Using one clear method to share this important information with us will be better for ourselves and yourselves going forward. With this in mind we are going to utilise a very easy and straightforward function now available through the Vsware app.

-Please note that to use this function we are asking everyone to download the Vsware app for free on your app store and use your normal log in details to access your account. The app can be used with a smart phone or there is also a desktop app for PCs or tablets.

The new attendance function we will be using is explained below-

Submitting absences / Informing the school when your child is absent-

Future absence

  • To inform the school that your child will be absent for a holiday, medical appointment etc., go to the main Attendance screen for your child, scroll down to Absence Requests and click Submit Absence


  • Then select either Single Day or Multi Date and hit Next
  • Select the date, the type of absence (holiday, illness etc), and provide a reason for the absence
  • Hit Submit. Your absence request will be sent to the school for approval

Note: if you select Single Day you will be given the option to select a Full Day or Partial Day absence

Past, unexplained absence

If your child has been absent in the past without an explanation being given to the school, you can record the reason in one of two ways

  • Go to the main Attendance screen for your child, scroll down to Absence Requests and click Submit Absence
  • Select Past Absence and hit Next

  • Then select the date in question, enter the type and reason for the absence and hit Submit. The information will then be sent to the school

  • Alternatively, there will be a notification on in red at the top of the Attendance screen. Click into this to record the reason for the absence


Please follow this link to view a one minute video of how to submit an absence request from the parent app-


Beyond this function there is also a very useful way for the school to send messages out via the app -Vsmail. This will significantly reduce the cost of sending out texts as we do at the moment. You will simply receive notifications through the app now instead of text messages.

Please note that we will start to use this system from today.

If any of you have any queries or have difficulties logging in please contact Oifig na Scoile - 040291764

Le gach deá-ghuí,

Tony Ó Murchú
