NEWSLETTER 30.01.2014

Dear Parents / Guardians,

ETHOS: Our core value next month is Trust. St Brigid’s Day is on Sunday. St Brigid awakens all the fields and the flowers, and calls the birds to sing. Yes – January is over    ;o)

TEACHING AND LEARNING: This week the children listened to ‘Little Blue and Little Yellow’ by Leo Lion at assembly. There are some you-tube recordings of this book.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: There was a great response to the Speech & Drama and Irish Dancing. We are considering two more activities, and will be in touch about these shortly.

If you have any queries with either the Dancing or Drama, please do not contact the office or your class teacher. All queries must be directed to the teacher running the activity.

Hazel (Drama) – Contact in school.

Catherine (Irish Dancing) – 0879932791

BIKE SHED: Please lock the bike shed if you are last to leave the yard.

POD: Every family will be given a letter next week. This relates to the Primary Online Data system which the Department of Education is bringing into schools. Canal Way Educate Together will only be collecting information that you submit, for the obligatory category 1 section. We will not be collecting, storing or submitting information about religion or ethnicity on behalf of the Department of Education.

We hope you have a great weekend,

Dermot and all the staff.
