Welcome to this week’s newsletter,
HOMEWORK: Summer is here, and we shall be easing off on written homework for the month of June. Children will still have reading and essentials. Please use the free time to get out into the sunshine and keep active.
GRANDPARENTS & FAMILY DAY Thank-you to all our special guests who visited us last Friday. Again it was a fantastic day. Thanks Hazel and all the staff for making this a huge success. Thanks to the parents who helped out making the oceans of tea and for those who baked cakes and niceties. Rich conversation and rich cake was had by all.
BOARD OF MANAGEMENT: The Board of Management met last night for their final meeting this school year. They discussed and ratified the following policies: Gaeilge, History, Geography, Chronic Illness & Supervision. The board would like to thank the staff for forming the policies, and also thank the parents for their contributions. The work of the Parents Association was commended and sincere thanks passed on. The work of the buildings committee was noted and greatly appreciated, and the comprehensive report on repairs needed to cater for our expanding school was considered and progressed.
COOKBOOK – Thanks to the PAC for pulling this together. You will have lots of opportunities to pick up a copy over the coming weeks if you haven’t already.
