Our school was treated to a visit from the Garda Band yesterday afternoon.
Beforehand, our school -orchestra played as a support act and did us proud.
Many thanks to Philip McCaffrey for his hard work in organising this.
He went all-out and sang us a song aswell! Well done Philip.
Well done to our boys who made it to the final, meeting Ballyroan again! This time luck wasn’t with us despite a great performance by all.
Tickets are for sale for the dinner dance outside the school door at 1pm each day. Please support this event and our school. Thanks. Continue reading
Miss Daly’s Senior Infants and First Class are learning about the life cycle of the butterfly. On the 27th of April, 10 caterpillars arrived. Since then they have doubled in size and we are waiting for them to go into their chrysalis some time this week.
Best of luck to all in 6th class who are making their Confirmation on this beautiful sunny day!
Must be returned by the 5th May at the latest
Forms were sent home last week for our Book Rental Scheme and can be downloaded from the school website or collected from Ms Vera in reception.
We operate a Book Rental Scheme in the school. We are doing this to help keep costs to parents to a minimum. Our book rental scheme hopes to save parents a lot of money, especially as the children get older. Parents will pay between €10 and €25 each year. This money is used to buy class sets of textbooks and class novels, which will be used by the children in the school. These books should last several years and will normally be replaced because they are out of date, rather than because of the condition of the books. Parents of children who lose or damage a book will be asked to replace the book. This means that you will only have to purchase some workbooks, copies and some smaller items at the start of each school year.
- €10 Junior Infants to 2nd Class 2nd
- €25 for Third Class to Sixth Class. ( this is because the senior classes have a lot more text books)
