School note October 4th


Dear parents,

                    Groundworks have begun on the Resource Centre next to the school. This is a particularly busy time and I appeal to all parents to be vigilant. In wet weather, visbility is a major difficulty. Bus and Disabled parking areas must be kept clear at all times. Please do not drop children in the Staff parking area as they may pass in front of, or behind, other traffic. Many parents are using the Church car park and this is a great help.

                   Today is All Ireland Poetry Day and every class in the school learned, read, or listened to poetry today. It was enjoyed by all. Already this year, over a hundred children composed poems for the Cuisle Poetry festival which takes place in Limerick on the weekend of October 12th to 14th.

                  Well done to our boys and girls Under 13 football teams who have both been in action this week. The boys will play Lisnagry NS tomorrow and Patrickswell on Tuesday. All our Cumann na mBunscol fixtures are on the school website

                  Trials for the Limerick County Cross Country championships will take place tomorrow, Friday, in the school field straight after school.  This is open to boys and girls from Third to Sixth Classes.

                The Parents Association will meet in the school on Monday next October 8th. at 8.30 p.m.

                A meeting of parents of children making First Holy Communion next May will take place in the school on Thursday next October 11th at 8 p.m.

               Parent Teacher meetings will take place on Wednesday November 21st and Thursday November 22nd between 3.15 p.m. and 6 p.m. More details closer to the date.

Gach dea-ghuí,



J. Lyons
