School note September 28th


Dear parents,

                     I wish to bring the following to your attention. 

                     Parent -teacher meetings will take place on Wednesday October 25th and Thursday October 26th from 3.15p.m. to 5.30 p.m. Please note change of date. Parents will receive details of appointment times during the week of October 9th. As there is no class of more than 30 children in the school, it will be possible to meet all families during those times.


                    Yesterday's rain caused the postponement of our girls' football match v St Nessan's and classes with the Cycling Safety School. Both will be rescheduled with the girls' football fixed for Wednesday October 4th.


          Head Lice: Head Lice are a common problem in any environment where children assemble. It is advisable to deal with this as soon as possible. For information on dealing with this problem, see       


          Whizzkids , the IT programme, is starting tomorrow Friday 29th for 5th & 6th class children in  the Resource Centre each Friday for the next ten weeks.


              Well done to our Under 13 hurlers who reached the final of the Ard Scoil Ris Academy blitz on Saturday morning. Thanks to Mr Lordan for attending and to the parents who gave great encouragement to the team on the day.


            Parents Association: There is a Recycling Day planned for Friday October 6th. All families received bags this week. Please have your bags of unwanted clothes, handbags, paired shoes etc in bags at the school by 9.15a.m. that morning.

The AGM of the Parents Association will be held on Wednesday October 18th at 8 p.m. in the school. All welcome. The Parents Association do wonderful work throughout the year.
