Dear parents,

                    Today, at Assembly, the boys Under 13 football panel were presented with their medals following their victory over KIldimo NS in the final in the Gaelic Grounds. Special thanks to Mr Lordan and all the teachers involved with the team.

                    This week, almost 60 children from Third to Sixth Classes ran in the Limerick Cross Country Championships in Rathkeale.  A special thanks to Teacher Katie Gibbons and to Peter White for their help on the day. Mossie Woulfe from Athletics Ireland visited the school to present medals to the members of the successful teams.

              It has come to my attention that a number of children are dropped at school at an early hour. I wish to remind parents that the school cannot accept responsibility for children who are at school before 9 a.m.

               Parent teacher meetings will take place on Wednesday 27th. &  Thursday 28th. of November from 3.15 p.m. to 5.30 p.m. All families will receive written confirmation of meeting arrangements. I earnestly request parents to meet teachers on these dates in order to avoid disruption to classes.

           The Parents Association are looking for volunteers with the Book Fair.  If you are available to assist on Thursday 14th November, between 2pm - 4pm or 7.30pm and 9.30pm, or on Friday 15th between 9am-10am  or 2pm to 3.30pm, please contact Claire Shields at 061 353346 or 085 7846255.
