School note June 19th.2014



Dear Parents,

                    Today we had a Non- Competitive Fun Sports Day in the school. We were very fortunate that several teachers had attended inservice training in this area and organised the day's events superbly. We also had the good fortune that Mr Liam Clohessy, who is completing his Masters in Physical Education in Mary Immaculate College,  joined us for the day. His help and expertise were greatly appreciated.

For the afternoon, children and adults alike enjoyed  Zumba with instructor Darren Nash. I am really grateful to all the teachers who worked so hard to ensure the day was a success. I am also grateful to some former pupils who volunteered to help out for the day.

             Book Rental: All children in Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth classes will receive a note tomorrow offering parents the option of renting 4 books next year for  €15. Please ensure you read this note.

The teachers would appreciate if you could provide any of the following: jigsaws, cars, trucks, dolls, clothes for dressing up, toys for imaginative play e.g. Post Office, garage, etc.
