Welcome to our newsletter. There’s lots happening around the school these days as we enter term three, which is always a busy period. Today, we had some of our sixth-class children celebrating their Confirmation Day at Catherines Church in Donore Avenue—congratulations to them, ye looked fab! We recently had families celebrating Eid, and it was great to see the children come to school all dressed up and eager to share stories of the celebration with their peers. The sixth class is gearing up for their graduation film, and the school is buzzing as they prepare or this. Congrats to our 6th class children who participated in the Poetry Slam with local schools – GMBDS and St Catherine’s. PHOTOS HERE

Thanks so much to our Parents Association Committee for organising yet another event this weekend—the Sponsored Walk. Details are provided below. A big thank you to the committee for their work in organising activities, fundraising initiatives, after-school activities (a special thanks to Aline), and of course our hoodies – thanks Aude for this one.

Thanks to Paula Madej, our parent who has been working very patiently with me, redesigning our Welcome Brochure, which we will be giving our new families next week when we welcome them to our school at our welcome evening. Another 50 junior infants in 2024!

Enjoy the newsletter and the weekend ahead.
