As the forecast is predicting an exceptionally cold spell, please can we ask that all children bring a warm coat and a hat to school over the next few weeks. Our playground can be very cold at times.
We are hoping that the weather will not be disruptive to travel but given the number of absences due to illness in recent weeks, please can we also ask that every effort is made to get the children to school every day. We are trying very hard to make up for lost time.
We are now enrolling for September 2018 and are holding our Open Afternoon on Friday 2nd March from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Everyone is welcome...those who have already enrolled and those who are still considering the choices for their children. Our school is a warm and friendly place...we are always happy to answer questions and show off what we do.
Green Flag Visit
We wish 5th and 6th Class luck on Monday as we will be visited by a representative from 'An Taisce' as part of our Green Flag work. As you know, we are working on our 5th flag - Biodiversity and the children have worked hard on this theme for the past 18 months. We will find out in May if we have been successful.
World Book Day
We will be celebrating World Book Day in school on March 1st. Please take time to ask the children all about it.
To coincide with World Book Day, the Book Fair will be in school from Thursday 1st March. There is always a great selection of books on offer and school will receive a number of free books.
Thank you for your support of our swimming lessons. We would like to thank Alan Mahon for his help with supervision. Our last lesson will be on Wednesday 28th February. All children completed swimming tests.
We are currently working with Zara Holmes on a weekly basis. The children have been taking part in Speech and Drama lessons and hope to hold a small showcase at the end of these lessons. More details to follow.
We are in the process of developing the grassy area at the back of our playground. As you can imagine, this is a very expensive project and all of our recent and future fundraising money will be used for this.
