NEWSLETTER 23.01.2014

Dear Parents / Guardians,

Please find our weekly newsletter.

ETHOS: We are still in the process of electing the Board of Management, and are delighted to announce that Fiona has been elected as the teacher representative. We are researching suitable candidates for community representatives at present. We are giving this a lot of thought and consideration, and hope to be in a position to elect both of these candidates along with the parent’s representatives in the coming weeks.

VACCINATIONS: The HSE school vaccination team will visit our school on 11th February 2014. The vaccine offered will be MMR and 4in1 to all junior infants. We will be sending home an information leaflet and consent form next week.

YARD: Although the yard is open before 08.30am, we cannot take full responsibility for children in the yard before school opens. If you have to leave early, it may be an idea to leave your child with another adult in the yard, if they are in agreement.

OUT AND ABOUT: We are off to the National Gallery tomorrow. We will be on foot as always, and we have organised a guided tour for the children.

FIRHOUSE ETNS: This school started up the same time as us, and have been a great support to us in many ways. They are having a comedy night in Tallaght, Maldron Hotel, Friday 31st @ 19.30hrs. They have a great line up. Some old friends of the Portobello Start Up Group, Mr Paul Woodfull and Joe Rooney will be performing their hilarious act ‘Ding Dong Denny O’ Reilly & Scribbler’, along with Willie White and Al Porter. Should be good fun.

We hope you have a nice weekend,

Best Wishes – Dermot.
