Welcome to this weeks newsletter

ETHOS.

Muintir Day. Thank you to all the grandparents, family members and family friends who came along and enjoyed our Muintir Days here in the school. There was much fun, games and reminiscing taking places in the classrooms around the school. Thank you to all of the teachers and children for being such great hosts and to the classes who performed at our assemblies. Many thanks also to Phyllis and her mum (also Phyllis) and to the many families who baked cakes for the coffee morning here on both days. Thanks Hazel for initiating this and organising the event.

COFFEE MORNING / SECONDARY SCHOOLS

I am hosting an information coffee morning next Thursday 23rd at 08.40am in the hall. I shall be giving a brief outline of secondary schools in Ireland today, enrolment, preparing your child, local schools and general information. There is no huge update since last week’s newsletter, and this is more of a general information talk which should be of help to all – and there’s coffee.

PARENTS ASSOCIATION NEWS

Summer BBQ – The annual summer barbeque is taking place on Sunday, 9th June between 2pm and 4pm. The Parents’ Association Committee is looking for volunteers to help out with set up, clear up, food preparation, face painting, children’s games and an arts and crafts table. The event cannot be run without the help of volunteers so any assistance is greatly appreciated. Please contact Helen at helenkealy9999@gmail.com if you can help or let your class rep know.

Around the Building!

We have cool new blinds in the building to shield us from the blazing summer sun – in all the classrooms, the hall and staffroom.
