School note October 27th


Dear parents,

                   I wish to bring the following to your attention.

Every family in the school this week received a letter from the Chairman of the Board of Management concerning arrangements for the election of parent nominees to the new Board which will take up office on December 1st .2011. If you did not receive such a letter, please contact the school on Friday. The meeting will take place on Wednesday December 9th. at 8.45 p.m.

Due to the school being used as a polling station tomorrow, the Halloween fancy dress celebrations went ahead today. There was wonderful colour and pageantry in evidence. Well done to the boys and girls in Sixth Class who decorated the Halla and restored it to its original state so that everything is in readiness for polling tomorrow.

On Friday October 28th, the pupils from First to Sixth classes will participate in World Board Games Day from 1 to 3 p.m.  It is surprising the number of pupils who do not know how to play Ludo, Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, Draughts etc. At the moment Mrs Dillon teaches Board Games to interested children during lunch break. In order to build up our stock of Board Games we would ask each child in the participating classes to bring €2 on Friday to be used to buy additional sets.

Maths Week was a great success last week. I would like to thank all the teachers for their work in this area.

Our Under 13 football final which was scheduled for Tuesday was postponed due to the waterlogged pitch. It will now be played on either November 9th. or 10th. , weather permitting.

School reopens after midterm break on Monday November 7th.
