School note April 11th


Dear parents,

                      The school's Under 13 camogie team played Monaleen NS yesterday. They put up a great display but lost narrowly. Beidh lá eile againn!

                     Table Toppers: The stage is set for the 2019 Grand Final of Table Toppers which takes place in school today. 

                    School Tours: All classes will go on school tour on Thursday June 20th. All teachers will be on tour that day. In order to give parents time to plan ahead, it is school policy to give parents as much advance notice as possible. Monies needed by May 30th as tour venues need to finalise numbers etc. Parents may pay by e payments after the Easter break should they choose this method. Otherwise, put the money in an envelope with your child's name on it and give to the class teacher.

 Yesterday, the Parents Association presented a cheque for €275 to Brian O Callaghan of Special Olympics Ireland.
