School Note October 15th, 2015

Dear parents,
                   All families received Code of Conduct notes on Monday. Please read these with your children and sign the last page before returning the signed page to the school. Our motto in regard to good behaviour is summed up in four words: Be Kind To Everyone.
                Last Monday, two members of the Defence Forces  visited the school to present the school with a copy of the Proclamation and a National Flag. They spoke to the children about their work and explained the significance of the National Flag. This is the first event in a series of events as part of the 1916 Centenary.
              Maths Week: This is Maths Week and classes are involved in a range of activities, including Maths trails, Maths Art, Target Boards, Numero, Problem of the Day etc. There are some excellent maths displays on the walls of the corridors. The Problem of the Day appears on the website All classes from First to Sixth are now registered with Children can take part online from home.
                Please telephone the school if you wish to make an appointment to meet a teacher. Teachers cannot leave their class to meet parents who do not have an appointment.
                Today, our boys and girls Under 13 teams play in the City Cumann na m Bunscol semi finals.
