On behalf of everyone in school, I would like to thank Nan Leslie and the ladies of Hilltown W.L.O.L. for the hard work and effort that went into organising the recent Table Quiz and Quiz Sheets which raised a fantastic €1407 for our school funds. Nan called into school last week and we were able to say thank you in person and ask that our thanks also be passed on to all those who helped make the event such a success.
We offer our sincere sympathy to the Bustard and Mahon families following their recent bereavement,
Ashtree Garden Centre Tree Competition
We have spent quite a lot of time over the past few weeks creating decorations for our school tree in the Ashtree Garden Centre Tree Competition. If you are able, please take a trip down to cast your vote for our tree. Thank you to Mrs Gourley for overseeing the project and also to Mrs Patterson who helped decorate it last Tuesday evening. Thank you also to those others in school who baked, (baked again!) and generally helped the children get the decorations made and ready.
We thank Brian Donaghy for spending last Tuesday morning with the children from the Senior Room. As part of their R.D.S. project, the children have been working on creating a computer programme to help with the identification of the many creatures they have been finding in our river samples. Hopefully this game will form part of the display in the R.D.S. on January 10th.
