We are really looking forward to seeing you there.

PARENTS ASSOCIATION REPORT: PA Committee Meeting 19th May: Big Thanks to all for the sponsored walk. The Committee has communicated some parents’ requests for a sibling policy to the Board of Management. See below. We will organize a new lock for the bike shed.  Extracurricular activities for next year are being planned. The committee is also writing a policy on organizing these activities, which is at the draft stage.  We plan to make more use of the Parents Room.  There was also some discussion of events and activities to the end of the year – a barbeque in June and arrangements for summer play dates. The next meeting will be on 9thJune.  Any queries for the committee, please contact [email protected].
