Leah Love is very kindly organising a fundraising coffee morning on Saturday 11th February from 11 - 2 p.m. If you can spare an hour or two to help out, please let her or the school office know.
We are asking for a donation of baked items, buns or cakes from every family. These can be sent to school any time before Saturday or on Saturday morning.
Your support would be much appreciated.
We sincerely thank Valerie Moore for bringing in a selection of oysters for us to look at and hold. The children thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about them and asking questions.
If there are any other Mums or Dads (or friends) who would like to share an interest, hobby or skill with the children, please get in touch. We are always looking for visitors to come in and widen our horizons.

The Staff and Board of Management are continuously reviewing school policies. We are currently reviewing our Administration of Medicine Policy, Code of Behaviour, Complaints Policy and Attendance Policy. All of these policies are available to parents and can be found on the website. A printed copy is available in the school office. Our next Board of Management meeting will be held on Tuesday March 7th. If anyone would like to make suggestions or comment upon any policy, please make sure they are submitted before then.
As part of their Transition Year activities, 3 students from Coláiste Cholmchille have been visiting the Senior Room to teach French. It is particularly nice to see Katherine, a former pupil. The children have thoroughly enjoyed these taster lessons.
