School note November 8th 2012



Dear Parents,

                   As you are already aware, parent teacher meetings will take place over two afternoons, Wednesday November 21st. and Thursday November 22nd  between 3.15 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. You will receive appointment times in the post next week. As there is twice as much time being made available this year compared to previous years, I would earnestly request parents to meet teachers on these dates in order to avoid disruption to classes.

Congratulations to Ross Fitzgerald, Bobby Smith and Orla O Shaughnessy, prizewinners in the Halloween Fancy Dress competition for Best  Costume.

Sixth Class started a six-week programme of swimming lessons yesterday in Askeaton Leisure Centre. Fifth Class will follow suit after Christmas.

If you are available to assist with the Book Fair on Thursday 15th. November. between 2p.m. and 4 p.m. or 7.30 p.m. and 9 p.m. or on Friday 16th. between 9 and 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. to 3.30 p.m., please contact Claire Shields at 061 353346 or 085 7846255.

Please see overleaf for details of the Book Fair.

A meeting of the Parents Association will take place in the school on Monday next November 12th at 8.30 p.m. Thank you to all the parents who helped with the Rag and Phone collection before mid term. There was a great response.

Rosemary Locke has informed me that U 11 Mini Rugby training for boys  aged 8-11yrs, starts this Saturday 3-4pm in School Field, coached by Peter White and Liam Collins (IRFU registered). All players must have a gum shield.
