Internet Safety Workshop for parents
An Internet Safety Workshop will held in the Millpark Hotel on Tuesday 17th October at 8pm. This workshop has been organised by the P.T.A. in association with several other schools in the area and will be a great opportunity to find out how to keep your children safe online.
The children had great fun this week visiting the local libraries. Junior Infants - 1st visited Bundoran Library to watch a play. 2nd - 4th visited Ballyshannon library for storytelling.and the Senior children went to Bundoran Library for a talk by visiting author Steven Butler.
If you are not already a regular visitor to the library, please take time to bring the children along.
Co Donegal Schools' Service
5th Class and 6th Class enjoyed their outing to Ramelton Presbyterian Church on Thursday 5th where they joined with over 600 other children from the other 30 schools in Donegal which are under Church of Ireland or Presbyterian management. We say well done to Bobbie Griffith for reading a 'Please' prayer on behalf of our school.
Our annual sponsored Unihoc will take place at 12.30 p.m. on Friday 20th October. Our thanks as always to Muriel and Ezra and if you can help in any way, please let us know.
Cheerios Breakfast Morning
Although we are always trying hard to raise funds for ourselves, we believe that it is important to support other causes from time to time. We will be holding our 'Cheerios Breakfast Together' morning on Wednesday 18th October. Cereal and milk will be provided for the children in return for a donation of €2 (or whatever you would like to donate). Money raised will be donated to Childline. The children will need to bring their own bowls and spoons!
We are delighted to have Brian Donaghy from C.E.F. rejoining us on Thursdays. We have missed his lively guitar and fun stories.
Harvest Thanksgiving Service
Well done to the children from 1st to 6th Class for singing and performing so well at this morning's Harvest Thanksgiving Service. We also thank all those parents who ensured their children were present and came along to support their children and the school. On display in the church was a selection of the fruit and vegetables grown in the school organic garden. Miss McGinley and Miss Johnston did a great job of arranging the display and as always we thank Mr Barnett, without whom we would not be able to keep our garden going. Pictured are some of the children who came along to school in the summer holidays to help in the garden.
What a lovely morning we had celebrating Harvest. Well done to the children and thank you to all the parents and friends who came along to hear them sing.
Hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of the holidays despite the weather. Just a couple of things to bring to your attention...

The children in the middle room enjoyed a football blitz in Killybegs on Wednesday.
We were just astounded at this year's entries. They were all outstanding...so lovely to see the imagination and creativity of our young pupils. If you have a minute, please take time to have a look at the pictures in the Gallery. Mrs Patterson had the unenviable task of judging and we had our prize giving ceremony this afternoon. I think they are all worthy of a prize. Well done everyone!
Oh dear...there were so many rules broken today, we had to call the Guards! Some extremely troublesome pupils and lawbreakers roaming the building! Absolute chaos...
All jokes aside, we have had a marvellous day. Thank you so much to all our pupils, their families and our school staff for all the effort that went into today and for the support given. Thank you also to James and Ryan Deane (and family) for their sweet stand. Also a very special thank you to Sergeant Paddy Battle for calling in and restoring order! No arrests needed thankfully! At the last count, we had raised €900 for the Alan Patterson Trust...a truly superb amount. Thank you all again!
