On behalf of everyone in school, I would like to thank everyone, especially Nan Leslie, for the hard work they put into organising this year's Table Quiz. A total of €1,367 was raised for our school. Thank you to those who came along and took part in the Quiz. Thank you also to those families who bought or sold Quiz Sheets.
The total raised so far is €878. Thank you all very much and our thanks again to Muriel, Ezra and those who helped on the day. Please could we ask any remaining sponsor money be returned to school as soon as possible.
Ballintra Community Centre Whist Drive
We would like to thank most sincerely the players in the Community Centre for donating €500 to our school funds. This was raised at a recent Whist Drive.
Thank you to all those families who sent in filled shoeboxes this week for the Shoebox Appeal. Forty filled boxes are now on their way to bringing smiles, laughter and hope to children who think the world has forgotten them.
Cheerios Breakfast Morning
The total raised for our Breakfast Morning was €122. Thank you all very much.
We offer our sincere sympathy to the Mc Crea Family following their recent bereavement.
If you would like to order a Christmas annual, please return your order and money by Monday 27th November.
Parent Teacher Meetings
Parent Teacher meetings will be held in school during the week beginning Monday 20th November. Please let teachers know if you are unable to attend.
Hopefully the children will be telling you about all the things that have been going on in school over the past few weeks. We have had lots of visitors and workshops and events. These have included:
- Gaelic Football
- Computer Coding
- Maths Week
- Science Week
- Anti-Bullying Weelk
- Lego building
...and in the next few weeks we hope to be doing some pottery workshops and investigating some marine biology, as well as preparing for Christmas.
