School Note March 1st


Dear parents,

                     I wish to bring the following to your attention.

Last Friday, we bade farewell to Ms Mc Carthy after 16 years in this school. I would like to thank Ms Day, Ms Mulroe and the Sixth Class pupils for the hours of preparation they put into the event. The choir sang superbly. Once again, the Parents Association gave generously of their time and expertise to make the occasion memorable.

                      Fifth and Sixth Classes continued their preparation for Confirmation with an Enrolment ceremony in St Joseph's Church last Sunday. Thanks to Mrs Mulroe and Mrs Lordan for their time and effort and to Fr. O Connor who takes a great interest in all matters relating to the school.

                 Well done to Aisling Mc Namara, Second Class, who is a prizewinner in the INTO/EBS  Handwriting competition. Aisling will be presented with her prize at a function next Tuesday.

               Today is World Book Day. A range of activities will go on over the next week. I would earnestly request parents to take a few minutes to read with your child.

             Any families who wish to order hurling helmets at €50 each are requested to contact me by Friday March 9th.

          The school GAA season is upon us. Yesterday, a team from the school played in the Cumann na mBunscol indoor hurling blitz in Old Christians. Today it is the turn of the camogie team.

Gach dea-ghuí,



J. Lyons
