Board of Management: Thanks to so many of you who took the time to nominate and vote for candidates in our recent BOM elections. Thank you to all the parents who agreed to go forward, it is fantastic to have so many willing to give their time in support of our school. Aisling Kelly and PJ Leonard were successful on this occasion.

Chicken Pox: We have been advised of two cases of Chicken Pox in the junior end of the school. Please be vigilant.

Parent / Teacher Meetings: Will take place on the afternoons of Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd November. Parents / guardians who have not yet booked their slot are asked to do as soon as possible via the Aladdin App.

Parent Association AGM: Will take place at 7:30pm on Monday November 20th. I am a firm believer in the importance of building positive relationships between school and home and the Parent Association is the ideal structure through which we can achieve this. I appreciate how busy family life can be but I encourage all families to consider attending this meeting and I look forward to seeing you there.

Christmas Carol Service:  Our school Christmas Carol Service will take place on Tuesday 12th December at St Anne’s Church Ballylinan. Children from Junior and Senior infants will also take part this year. There will be no Junior and Senior Infant Nativity Performance this year. It will take place every second year moving forward. More details on the Carol Service to follow.

Thank you for your continued support of our school.
