We are enrolling Junior Infants for the coming school year. Parents should call to the school with their child between 3.00pm and 4.00p.m. and bring a copy of Birth / Baptismal Certificate and child P.P.S number.

We would appreciate if you would let everybody know especially those who may not have a connection with the school.

SCHOOL ABSENCES:

It is very important that children attend school every day and for the whole school day.  A child who misses school starts to fall behind. She then loses heart and begins to think she is no good at school.  Any absences or early leaving must be reported in writing.  Figures are compiled on a weekly basis.

GREEN FLAG:

The Green Schools has been busy for the month of November trying to convince everyone to brave the chilly conditions and walk to school!  In an effort to promote this initiative amongst the pupils, we held a poster competition and were amazed at the calibre of entries that we saw.  The winners were as follows:

Nicole Nolan 6th class, Kayleigh Malone 5th class, Abbie O’Loughlin 4th class, Stacie O’Brien 3rd class, Abbie Doyle 2nd class, Amie Quinn 1st class, and Mia Jameson Seniors. Watch out for these beautiful posters displayed around the school.

CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE:

This year we have decided to postpone our annual play to the last term, when we hope the new community hall will be open.

However we will hold a Christmas Carol service/ Nativity in the Church.  As space is limited the classes will perform at separate times and tickets will be issued for families.

There is no charge but you must have a ticket.  No babies or buggies please!  Please indicate how many tickets you want 4 is the maximum.  Service will take place on Wednesday 14th December. Jnr, Snr Infants will be at 2pm, 1st and 2nd class 7p.m. and 3rd to 6th classes will be at 8.00pm.
