The school will close for all pupils at 2pm on Thursday October 22nd. On Thursday we are marking the retirement of Mrs. Morris with a presentation ceremony in the sports hall from 1.30 pm. Parents collecting children are welcome to join us. Mrs. Morris will retire on Friday, October 23rd. She was appointed to our school in 2005 having taught in Graiguecullen, Bagenalstown and Newtown. Over the last 10 years Mrs. Morris has been part of the learning support team and her work in this area has benefited many children. We wish her well in the years ahead in what will certainly be an “active retirement”.
School closes at normal times (2pm for infants and 3pm for all other classes). Please note error on school calendar.
A reminder that we are “dressing up” on Friday. No masks for anyone or one piece costumes for infants please.
Meeting for parents in school sports hall on Thursday, November 5th at 8pm. (Joint meeting with other schools).
