Greetings all –

ETHOS – This month’s Core Value is ‘Love’. Chinese New Year and Darwin Day will be explored next week in school. Please send in any interesting books you have on Evolution or Chinese New Year, to share with the class.


GRANDPARENTS DAY – Friday Feb 12th, Please note that we have changed the time of this event to 10.30. Apologies. ( and Empathy was last month’s core value – shame on us ! )

If Grandparents are unable to come, we welcome any other more mature family members, to come along and partake in the discussion about their school days, games they played when they were young(er). We will delight them with some songs and poems. After our chat, the Grandparents etc are welcome to join us for our school assembly. Tea and coffee in the parents room after assembly.

GALLERY – Check out the Gallery for more photos and parental involvement.

ELECTION TIME – We have been contacted by ET, to inform our whole school community of the following information. I know some parents are working very hard on the second level campaign, so this is very relevant to us. educatetogetherge16

Sporting Liberties have asked us to inform our whole school community of a meeting on Tuesday Feb 9th @ 7pm in St Catherine’s Sports Centre, Dublin8. The meeting is about getting a full size pitch and swimming pool in Marrowbone Lane.
