School note January 11th 2018


Dear parents,

                     The boys and girls in Third class began a six week programme of swimming lessons in Askeaton Leisure Centre yesterday.

                    Ms Day has kindly offered to enter a choir in the Limerick Choral Festival this year. Choir practice will take place every Wednesday, starting on Wednesday January the school from 3 p.m. to 3.45 p.m. Pupils from 3rd to 6th classes may join. The Choral Festival will take place on Friday March 2nd.

              Parents Association: The Parents Association will meet in the school tonight, Thursday, at 8 p.m. All welcome. Those who are nominated as Class Reps are reminded to attend.  

            Seasonal Influenza advice: The HSE has issued advice for parents on preventing the spread of influenza in schools. Please copy and paste this link in your browser:  

   If your child is sick, he/she should not be at school!             

              Ms Gibbons  organised a Festive Run which took  place in the run-up to Christmas.   Participation in the Festive Run gained entry to a lottery for a visit from the Special Olympics torch in 2018. The amount raised for Special Olympics was €533.90. Well done to all who contributed.           

                  A message from Ms Day: The school is in need of costumes for future Drama productions. It would be greatly appreciated if children could bring in any costumes/ dress up items or props that they do not use anymore to the drop off point beside Rosemarie's office this Friday morning.  Thanking you all in advance.

Gach dea- ghuí,


J. Lyons
