I would like to welcome all pupils, staff and parents back to school after the Christmas break.
As previously mentioned, Music in the Classroom takes place on Friday January 20th. in the University Concert Hall. All pupils from First to Sixth Classes will attend this excellent event. Monies to be paid to your child's teacher. The cost including bus, concert etc is €13 per child.
Fifth Class pupils have just started a six-week programme of swimming lessons in Askeaton Leisure Centre. This is a great opportunity for all pupils to learn a lifelong skill.
Mrs. Allen, who retired as Deputy Principal at Christmas, has asked me to express her gratitude to all parents who sent their good wishes to her. I would also like to thank the members of the Committee of the Parents Association who put such effort into making the occasion so special.
Ms Siobhan Clifford and Ms Katie Gibbons have joined the staff until the end of the school year. They are most welcome and have settled in already in their roles as Fourth Class teachers.
The school is now taking applications for enrolment in Junior Infants in September 2012. Parents who have already submitted their child's name will receive an Application Form in the post. If you have not done so already, please contact the school. Closing date for applications is Friday January 27th at 3 p.m.
I would remind all people driving in the vicinity of the school to be aware of the safety of the children at all times.
