Enclosed with this letter are permission slips for school related outings &activities. Please sign and return to the school at your earliest convenience. Also forms for Pupil Personal Insurance. There are two types: school day cover or all-year-round. This is entirely voluntary but has proven very popular with parents in the past. Should you decide to avail of this insurance, please hand monies to the School Office by Friday September 21st.
The AGM of the school’s Parents Association will take place in the school on Monday September 10th. at 8 p.m. in Ms Gibbons’ room. All parents are welcome.
I will speak briefly on the structures and systems of the school. Cora Harty, Secretary of the PA has asked me to point out that a number of long-serving and active members of the Committee will no longer have children in the school after this year so new blood is needed. For parents new to the school, this is a great opportunity to meet other parents and become involved in the school community.
I would like to express my gratitude to all the families for their Art & Craft/Photocopying contributions. If you have not yet paid this money, you can give it to Rosemarie in the school office any day between 9a.m. and 2 p.m.
All classes from First to Sixth sit Standardised tests in English and Maths each year. These scores were recorded on your child’s end of year report last June. If your child achieved a Sten of 9 or 10 in either test, you may be interested in classes run by the Centre for Talented Youth in DCU. Further details on: http://www4.dcu.ie/ctyi/index.shtml . Please note these courses involve a fee.
