School note April 16th. 2015

Dear parents,

                    I am delighted to welcome everybody back to school for the last term of the school year. We have ten weeks to go until the end of another school year and this term is exceptionally busy. Please ensure that homework does not become a casualty. Please check your child's homework nightly and sign the homework journal. If you have a problem, contact the school and make an appointment to meet your child's teacher.       

                   I would like to bring to your attention that the school's Code of Behaviour states in relation to hairstyle that 'extremes of fashion fads are to be avoided'. Dyed or bleached hair, 'train tracks', 'stars' etc are not allowed.  Earrings are not allowed on health and safety grounds.

                   School tours go ahead for all classes on Thursday  June 11th. In order to help children and parents budget for this,  details are on the school website and on the reverse side of this note.

                     Food Dudes: As part of our aim to promote good eating habits, this school will once again take part in the Food Dudes project. Children from Juniors to Second class inclusive will receive fruit every day for 16 days beginning next Tuesday April 21st. Children from Third to Sixth classes will receive sample fruit and vegetable on four days during this period. All children have today received a note about this. It is important to circle YES or NO on the Consent form. Thanks to Mr Sheehy and the other teachers for coordinating distribution of fruit and vegetables to almost 270 children.

               Health Promoting Schools: The first meeting of the Health Promoting Schools committee takes place in school at 2 p.m. today.

                 Parents Association: A meeting of the Parents' Association will take place in the school on Monday April 27th at 8.30 p.m. All welcome.

                                     Our school is committed to encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle among all our pupils. Parents interested in the Great Limerick Run for children aged 4-12 are advised that this will take place at 2 p.m.on Saturday May 2nd. in UL. More information on

         Parking: Please use the Resource Centre Car park or the Church grounds. Please do not park near the school gate. Children will have to walk in front of traffic if you do this. Safety is the top priority.


Gach dea- ghuí,
