School note May 28th


Dear parents,

                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                    Yesterday, Mrs Hodgins and Mary Conway, accompanied by Emer Conroy and Barry Twomey from the Green Schools Committee, travelled to Cork to accept the school's third Green Flag. This represents the culmination of two year's work in the area of Water Conservation. Well done to all involved.

                Today, our under 13 camogie team meet Milford NS in the final of the Limerick City Cumann na mBunscol competition. We wish them well.

              New Infants: Parents of all Junior Infants starting in September 2015 will be invited to meet the class teacher on Tuesday June 9th and Wednesday June 10th. All parents will be notified in writing next week.

              School tours: All classes are on school tour on Thursday June 11th. Please pay outstanding monies by tomorrow, Friday May 29th.

                The school has a small number of hurling helmets available, all Medium size, at a bargain price of €30 each. First come, first served.

                Yesterday, Munster rugby player Ciara Griffin, who is completing a Master's in Education,  finished a ten week stint with Mr Lordan's class. Ciara taught the skills of the game and also covered teamwork, discipline, healthy lifestyle and positive thinking. It was a most worthwhile experience.

              Another school year is almost at an end. The school calendar for next year is on the reverse side of this page. Please keep carefully.

             School will be closed all next week and reopen on Monday June 8th.

Gach dea-ghuí,

J. Lyons
