We would like to remind parents of the procedures for making a complaint in the Limerick School Project. Below is an excerpt from the Parents Booklet we give all parents when their child joins the Limerick School Project for the first time.

 Complaints Procedure:  If you have a query or concern regarding a school matter relating to your child, this is the procedure to follow:

1) Always go to the class teacher first.  In most cases, concerns can be resolved at that level.  The teacher will inform the principal of any serious complaints.

2) If, at that stage, you feel that the issue has not been resolved, you are welcome to make an appointment with the Principal to discuss the matter.

3) If you still feel unhappy with the outcome, you can then bring your concerns to the Board of Management of the school.  In order to do this, the concerns must be put in writing to the Chairperson of the BOM.


Everyone in 4th class would like to wish Alex Breathnach the very best as he goes on stage in the Lime Tree Theatre as ‘Gavroche’ from Les Miserables with the ‘MIDAS’ Company. As they say in acting ‘break a leg’.


Design a hat parade will take place at 10.30am tomorrow. We’re hoping every pupil will join in (and parents are welcome too!).


Reminder: please return your POD forms if you have forgotten to do so already. Any parent who refuses to fill in the form must put this in writing to the principal, stating the reasons why this is so and the letter must be signed and dated.


‘Magic of the Musical’s dvds can still be ordered. Please give your name and €15 to Louise. DVDs will arrive after Easter break.
