School note November 9th

Dear parents,

                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                    Parents of children in Mr Lordan's class who were due to have parent -teacher meetings on Wednesday October 25th will have meetings on Wednesday next November 15th. All other classes have completed their meetings. As usual, there was almost 100% attendance.

                    Fourth class enjoyed the first of six swimming lessons in Askeaton Leisure Centre yesterday. It will be the turn of  Third class after Christmas holidays.

                    The children in Mr Sheehy's and Ms Griffin's classes will enjoy hurling lessons with a coach from Ballybrown GAA club tomorrow and each Friday until Christmas. Hurley and helmet needed, if possible.

                    All three Infant classes will take part in a PE module with  Sport and Leisure students from LIT each Friday morning for the remainder of this term.

                   Tomorrow, all children from Third to Sixth classes will attend UCH for a performance of 'Cork Pops'. All classes have been learning songs in readiness for the big day. Thanks to the Parents Association who have paid for the buses to UL.

                     Best wishes to Ms Griffin, Second Class teacher,  who plays for Munster v the Barbarians in Thomond Park tomorrow evening.

   Congratulations to Mr Sheehy  and his wife on the birth of their second child, a boy.
