school note March 29th.2012


Dear parents,

                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.

Yesterday, a team of Diocesan Examiners in Religious Education visited the school. They visited all classes but particular emphasis was placed on the classes receiving sacraments this year. All feedback was extremely complimentary of the standard of work achieved by teachers and pupils alike. Last Friday, the Confirmation classes took part in a school-based Retreat co-ordinated by Lorna Murphy of the Limerick Diocesan Office.

Today, Third class took part in the Limerick Schools Drama Festival when they staged 'I Didn't Think' in Our Lady of Lourdes School.

The school was well represented in the St Patrick's Day parade in Limerick. April O Neill won the Best Dressed prize sponsored by Red Viking Tours. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience as children walked behind the school banner. Photos may be viewed on the Red Viking Facebook page.

Well done to our hurling and camogie teams who achieved victory in their games in the City Leagues this week.

The Lost Property bin at the Office is full. If your child has lost a fleece, jacket or polo shirt, please check.

Confirmation is on Friday April 27th at 12 noon for 5th and 6th class pupils.  All candidates' family and relations are most welcome to attend, but remember space is limited in the church.

Tomorrow, Friday, there will be a Recycling Day in aid of the Parents' Association.  All items to be delivered by 9.30 a.m. please.

Please note that school will close for Easter holidays tomorrow Friday at 12.30 p.m. and re-open on Monday April 16th. All classes will go on school tour on Thursday May 24th. School will be closed for the forthcoming referendum on the stability Treaty on Thursday May 31st.

Newsflash! Well done to Third Class and producer Ms. Day who were awarded First Prize in their category in the Schools Drama Festival today. Míle buíochas to Evelyn and Tom O Brien who gave drinks and crisps to the entire cast.

Gach dea ghuí
