Volume 20 Issue 5
Thursday 3rd October 2019
As you may be aware Met Éireann has issued a Status Orange weather warning for this evening/tonight in advance of the impending arrival of Storm Lorenzo. This weather warning is active from 6pm this evening until 3am tomorrow morning. This may change depending on the track of the storm.
Status Orange weather events are serious and it is important to take all precautions necessary. Limerick School Project will remain open unless Met Éireann updates the warning to RED or unless the National Emergency Coordination Group or the local authority advises us to close. If the Board of Management determines that the school should close, a text message will issue from the principal notifying parents of this. Information will also be made available through the school’s website, social media platform and local radio stations, in the event of a closure. Extreme weather events are rapidly evolving situations but the school will give as much notice as possible, if we have to close. Unless a text is issued informing parents of a closure, then the school will be open. It will then be a matter for each individual parent as to whether to send their child to school or not. All decisions that the school makes in relation to this storm will be guided by what is in the best interests of your children. Stay safe and wrap up nice and warm tonight!
Reminder: Pupil Personal Accident insurance forms. Please fill in and return with relevant payment by tomorrow, Friday
The PTA met on Monday and there was a turnout of nearly 30 people – a great success, well done to all involved! The outgoing committee gave an overview of their work to date and Barry thanked them for the huge amount of work they did to support the school. We have a brand new committee of nine parents and we hope that you will support them in their new role to further grow and develop the school, in this our thirtieth year. The new Chairperson of the committee is Larissa Mirtschink and the Treasurer is Michaela Hajkova. In addition to the nine committee members, ten other parents agreed to volunteer and help the PTA with some events that they may be running throughout the year. We are looking for as many volunteers as possible so if you are willing to be on the PTA’s volunteer list, please notify Louise and you will be added to it! The more people we have, the less work individual parents will have to do – and the experience will also be far more sociable as we all get to know and develop relationships with each other.

Global Goals Special Edition!
The whole school community have been busy exploring the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. We’ve had two school assemblies over the past week, and lots of really exciting lessons happened in the classrooms. Third Class did a superb job writing reflections on the week. It is impossible to include them all here and they were all excellent, so please check out our display outside the class. Here are some reviews.
LSP have just had a super Global Goals Week. The children of LSP were doing Global Goals Week and every class was working on a different subject like Third Class explored the question ‘Do you know where food comes from?’. First Class about plastic in water and then read a story about two kids and one of them threw a plastic bottle in the ocean and they learned how this can hurt sea life. Everyone did amazing work and it is fair to say that the kids in LSP are good Global Citizens! Oilleóg
Second class had great fun today drawing lots of autumn fruits, seeds and berries. We drew acorns, beech nuts, conkers, sycamore helicopters, rose-hips, holly, hawthorn and blackberries. We love autumn!
