School note November 22nd 2012

Dear parents,
                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.
The Book Fair was a great success last week. I wish to thank the members of the Parents Association who gave generously of their time both during school hours and at night. Total sales came to €2,415.74. The school is entitled to purchase books to the value of  60% of this amount. This is of great benefit to all children in the school.
                 There has recently been an exceptionally high number of sick children in school. This contributes to spreading sickness. School is not the place for a child who is unwell.
               Today, folk group 'The Twitters' gave three performances in school. Apart from enjoying a live performance, the children were treated to examples of vocal harmony, a variety of instruments, breathing techniques interspersed with traditional Irish songs with some Christmas songs thrown in. All in all, a most enjoyable day.
            Well done to Aisling Laffey, Joanne Davoren and Tomás O Connor who all represented Limerick City in the Cumann na mBunscol competitions in UL last week.
           If you wish to receive the Thursday note by e mail, please send in your e mail details to the school. The form may also be accessed on the school website.
The National Parents Council is hosting an information evening on Internet Safety & Cyberbullying in the South Court Hotel, Raheen on Wednesday next November 28th at 8 p.m.
Please see the reverse of this page for a note concerning Bagpacking on Saturday December 22nd.
Gach dea- ghuí,

J. Lyons.
