Voluntary Envelope Collection
This important envelope collection is our main means of fundraising and allows us to provide better facilities, equipment and services for your children. From this week onwards the envelopes will be sent home everyweekwith the oldest child in each family. We really appreciate your support and ask you to consider making a small contribution weekly. The money adds up and is put to very good use, providing extra opportunities for our children. Your contribution is voluntary and confidential and you will be issued with a receipt at the end of the year.
Book Bills / Rental
Book rental/school contribution fees are now overdue. Please pay immediately or contact the school to make payment arrangements. We will be contacting you in the coming weeks re. any outstanding payments. Thank you.
Well done to Tadhg McHugh on finishing in 3rdplace in the Carlow Cross Country event recently; an outstanding achievement for someone who doesn’t run competitively. Well done also to Robbie Buckley who will be representing Ireland in the world go-kart racing finals X30 class in Le Mans (France) next week. Go Robbie. Beidh sé ag taisteal ar nós na gaoithe! Finally, congratulations to the boys footballers who have made it through to the Cumann na mBunscol Roinn 2 final this year. The final is very likely to be on Thursday, 24thOctober. Details to follow when confirmed. They have played with great skill and determination but most of all have made a fine team. And they have one more match to win! Go n-éirí libh a bhuachaillí.
