An Nuacht – 24th October 2014

Thanks to everyone who contributed to Term 1 White Envelope Week. Unfortunately it has been down a fair bit since last year. To enable the running of our school we are asking that you contribute what you can to our White Envelope Week (WEW). While it costs €672 per pupil to run the school, the Department of Education currently gives us only €388. Please give whatever you can afford.

Names and money will be taken tomorrow, Friday for the new after-school basketball which will commence on Monday 3rd Nov (junior group) & Tues 4th Nov (senior group). This will run until Christmas break. Cost €16 per child. Names and money to Louise


We will be adding our new nationalities to the wall shortly. If your country hasn’t been represented please let us know.

Lost Property.

Please check lost property box if your child is missing any jacket etc. Unclaimed items will be donated to charity next week.

For recent Mental Health Awareness Week, 5th class took part in a variety of mindfulness activities.  It sounds easy, but it is actually surprisingly hard to slow down and clear your mind of thoughts and worries!

5th & 6th enjoyed some top class storytelling at Mary I on Tuesday 14th when we went to see ‘The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy’. The performance was amazing and we were all moved by the story.

We are collecting old phones again this year. Please bring them in to help get some IT equipment.
