School note January 20th 2011

Dear parents,
I wish to bring the following to your attention.
All pupils from First to Sixth Class will attend Music in the Classroom tomorrow in the Concert Hall at UL.
As traffic is very heavy at the moment due to poor weather conditions etc., I appeal to all pupils to try to be at school by 9.10 a.m. so that buses can depart at 9.15 a.m. The children have been practising the songs for the performance and it promises to be a great occasion. At €12 per child, the school has no profit margin as this  barely covers the cost of the performance and the transport.  All classes will be accompanied by their teacher.
Clan Cluana Theatre Company will visit the school on Tuesday next January 25th to stage a performance of  the story of Cuchulainn for pupils from Second to Sixth Class inclusive . Cost is €3 per child.
In last week's note, I explained how the school is conscious of financial demands made on families at the moment. Having spoken with the Parents' Association, it   was decided to ballot all families in the school on preference for school tours. A polling form has been issued to every family today. Please return the form to the school by 3 p.m. on Monday January 24th.
The closing date for application for enrolment in the Junior Infant class for September 2011 is 3 p.m.  on Friday January 28th.
Since we returned after Christmas holidays,  I have noticed a variety of  pants with multicoloured logos and stripes being worn. These are not part of the uniform and should not be worn to school. Plain blue pants/ tracksuit pants please.
Best wishes to the quiz teams representing the school in the Community Games on Sunday next. The quiz will now start at 1.30 p.m.
