Ice Skating

We will be bringing classes from 1st to 6th to the Ice Skating rink next Wednesday at 12 noon. Permission slips must be returned to school along with €10 admission fee beforehand. Permission slips are attached to the Nuacht today. We recommend that children bring a change of clothing (tracksuit & socks), a helmet and knee/elbow pads. The organisers have assured us that we will have the rink to ourselves this year which will make it a safer environment for our younger skaters.

Winter fair

A huge thank you to the PTA from the staff and children of the LSP for the fantastic Winter Fair last Sunday. It was great to see so many new parents helping in so many different ways.. It was a lovely, happy day for children and adults and this was, in no small way, due to all the hard work put in by the PTA and the many volunteers involved.

The Parent Teacher Association committee would like to extend its thanks to all the people involved in making the Winter fair a great success.  This success is down to the whole school community – the parents/guardians, teachers and school staff, the afterschool/crèche, and the children – working together in partnership.  There was tremendous support given to the PTA committee in the run up to the fair regards organizing the various aspects of the fair.  A cohort of parents did excellent work last Friday morning making Christmas wreaths and painting the school windows. Likewise the parents who worked with the children making the class crafts did tremendous work – the crafts that were made would not look out of place in any craft shop. On the day itself there was no shortage of people lending support in setting up the fair, working at the various stalls and then helping to get the school back into shape for the children again on Monday morning. The music on the day kept everyone in a festive mood and our MC for the Raffle did a great job. Thank you to all those who donated all the wonderful baked goods and delicacies. Lastly a big thank you to all the people that turned up on the day and supported the fair and most importantly helped to raise vital funds which will go towards extracurricular activities for all the children at LSP.  We hope you had a good time and enjoyed yourself.

Best Wishes
The PTA Committee

N.B. Plates and dishes can be collected outside the school staffroom.

Spare clothes

We keep spare children’s clothes available in case of accidents/ heavy showers etc.

We are delighted to be able to offer them when necessary but must insist that they are washed and returned as soon as possible afterwards.

A huge congratulations to Emily McNamara in 6th class who represented the LSP in the Munster Schools Swimming competition recently. Emily says:”Last weekend, I represented my school in the Munster schools’ competition. I qualified for the Irish National Schools competition which will take place in February 2015.” Well done Emily.

 

Christmas Jumper for Charity

Next Thursday 18th December the School Council is asking everyone to take part in their fundraiser for Enable Ireland children’s Services.

They want everybody to wear a Christmas jumper (or a jumper in a festive colour) and pay €2 towards this charity. There is no need to buy a jumper – just decorate one to look festive. All the money will go to the local Enable Ireland Children’s Services on the Dock road, where some LSP children avail of their services.

Don’t forget your €2 next Thursday!

 

We are hoping to update the flags in the foyer, please let Louise or your child’s class teacher know if your country isn’t included.
