It’s a good time to ensure that your child’s name is on all clothing. We can have great difficulty identifying jumpers/tracksuit tops in the playground. Please check now!
Emergency Medicine Day
Some of the pupils will get a chance next week (Monday 27th) to view an ambulance and talk to professionals who work in emergency medicine. The visit to the school is part of a promotion by the HSE to educate children with the aim of familiarising them with what’s involved and hopefully making it a little less daunting if – heaven forbid – they need emergency treatment. The HSE will be promoting the visit on social media.
Will be on Thursday this week for both groups.
Super Troopers Summer Camp
Fun-filled activity camp will take place from Monday – Friday (1st– 5th) July. Details to follow.
Orders now being taken for September via the school office on or before Friday, 14th June.
Please note that you can phone your order (see number below).
Voluntary Envelope Collection
The envelope collection is our main means of fundraising and allows us to provide better facilities, equipment and services for your children. The envelopes have been sent home every Tuesday with the oldest child in each family. Next week’s envelope will be the last one for this year. Your contribution is voluntary and confidential and receipts for this year will issue in due course. Thank you!
Parking at the School
Thank you for parking in an orderly fashion at the school. Please remember that the drop-off area is only for that purpose; no double parking in that area is allowed because then children have to walk between cars which can be dangerous. Allow plenty of time if at all possible!
School will be closed for polling day on Friday, 24thMay. First Communion will be on Saturday, 25thMay. Please remember that the school will be closed for the first week in June (Mon. 3rd– Fri. 7th), hopefully with some decent weather in store. School will close for summer on Friday, 28thJune (half-day) and will reopen for all pupils on Thursday, 29thAugust.
