School note January 19th 2012

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. The children have been practising the songs for the performance and it promises to be a great occasion. The performance is at 12 noon so we will be back in school long before 3 p.m. At €13 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 Thursday next January 26th to stage a performance of the story of Diarmuid and Gráinne  for pupils from Second to Sixth Class inclusive . Cost is €3 per child.

I made an appeal yesterday for copies of textbooks in the Starways series from Junior Infants to Second Class. Thank you to all who have already responded. I hope families will have a look for these books over the weekend.

Since we returned after Christmas holidays, I have noticed a number of pupils with biscuits, bars etc in their lunchboxes. Our Healthy Eating policy has been a great success. I urge parents to co-operate with the policy.

Please note: The closing date for application for enrolment in the Junior Infant class for September 2012 is 3 p.m.  on Friday January 27th.
