School note June 1st 2011

Dear parents.
                 I wish to bring the following to your attention.
Tomorrow, Thursday June 2nd. sees the unveiling of our first Green Flag which was earned following a concerted effort to reduce our litter output and save energy. Much work has gone into this over the course of the last two years. Mr Richard Butler, Chairman of Limerick County Council, who are responsible for Green Flag and related environmental issues, will be among the guests. Parents are most welcome to attend the ceremony but with 250 children, 20 adult staff and also guests including Board of Management, Parents' Association and others, it will be standing room only.
Heartiest congratulations to the Green School Committee members and coordinators Mrs Hodgins and Ms Mc Carthy. Starting time 1 p.m.
             There will be a Colours Day on Friday June 3rd in aid of the Parents Association. Pupils are asked to wear Green on the day. €1 per child is requested.
In keeping with the Green theme, Eco Environmental will run a Recycling Day on Friday June 17th.  They accept all types of clothes, bed linen, shoes etc., and recycling bags will be issued on Monday the 13th  
       Reminder:  School will close on Friday June 3rd. at 3 p.m. and reopen on Monday June 13th.
Gach dea-ghuí,
