We look forward to welcoming Paddy Hegarty back to school next Wednesday (19th September) for football training. Paddy will be joining us until Hallowe'en so P.E. uniform will be needed on Monday and Wednesday each week from September 17th until October 24th.
On behalf of everyone in our school community, I would like to thank Mr David Myles and Mr Ivan Diver for donating €276 to our school funds. This money resulted from a recently organised bus trip to West Donegal. I would also like to thank those who travelled on the trip or had a part to play in its organisation. Our school faces a very difficult financial year ahead so we are very grateful for this boost to our funds.
I would like to welcome Khloe and her family to our school community. Khloe will be joining us in Junior Infants.
Yes, I know it is only September but they are already selling selection boxes in Asda and the weeks will soon go by. We will be holding this year's Christmas Carol Service on Thursday 21st December at 7 p.m. Please keep the date free. The children always work hard for this.
This term we will be joined weekly by a visiting speaker. Reverend Russell, Reverend Corry and Mrs Russell will be taking it in turns to join us on Thursday mornings. We welcome them and thank them for their time and commitment.
Photographs & School Photographer
- In case you haven't noticed them, I have added the End of Year photographs to the Gallery. I would like to thank Jason McGarrigle for kindly sending them to me.
- The School Photographer will be visiting school on November 15th. As always, family groups with little brothers and sisters are more than welcome ( I am sure the photographer wouldn't say no to some photos of mums and dads too). Please let me know if you need group photographs so that I can arrange a time with the photographer.
Cross Country Running
Some of the children in the Senior Room will be taking part in the annual cross country running competition in Finn Vallley on September 26th.
The Fields of Life volunteers travelling to Uganda are asking for your help. Please return filled pecil cases to school by September 28th.
