Dear parents,

                    This is a busy time of year. Please note the following.

                     Children in Junior Infants will attend for the full infant day from Monday September 14th. Parents collect them from the Senior Yard at 2 p.m. Prompt collection is vital as children may become anxious if not collected on time.

                  Confirmation: Fr Cussen has informed me that Fifth and Sixth Class pupils will receive Confirmation on Tuesday April 12th. 2016.

                   Yesterday, the boys and girls in Third Class began classes in Cycling Safety with Mr. John Clancy of Cycling Safety Ireland.

                    Tomorrow, Friday, the Fifth and Sixth Class pupils will begin a ten- week ICT course in the Resource Centre run by Whizzkids. The Resource Centre is a great asset to the school and we appreciate the co- operation of the staff.

                   Reminder: Should you decide to avail of Allianz insurance, please hand monies to the School Office by Friday September 25th.

                  Next week, the Cumann na mBunscol football season begins. This school will enter teams in boys and girls football. We are lucky to have so many teachers who give generously of their time and expertise.

                 I would like to express my gratitude to all the families for their Art & Craft/Photocopying contributions. If you have not yet paid this money, you can give it to Rosemarie in the school office any day between 9a.m. and 2p.m. €35 per child or €60 per family.

                 Please ensure that the school has up to date contact details for phone, Text a Parent and e mail.

                      If your child is absent, please fill in an Absence note to be given to the class teacher on your child's return to school.

            Please check the school website for relevant information.
