An Nuacht – 15th May 2014

Tomorrow is the Plant and Cake Sale.  Please consider baking tonight.  We’re particularly calling on families from Junior Infants to 3rd class who weren’t asked to bake for the Valentine’s Fair, but families from all the classes are welcome to bake for the sale.  Also, please come support this annual PTA event!

Thanks to everyone who returned their White Envelope and a gentle reminder to those who may have forgotten.  White Envelope Week (voluntary contributions) plays a very important role in maintaining our ongoing financial stability.  We are sincerely grateful for any contribution, no matter how small.  We receive only 60% of our annual spend from the Department of Education, and the generosity of parents over the many years has ensured we are able to continue to provide a well-rounded educational experience for all children.

There will be a PTA meeting next Monday night, the 19th of May, at 7pm at the school and all are welcome.  Agenda – Plant and Cake Sale Reflection and preparation of nominations for the upcoming AGM.

Sixth class will begin knitting classes starting on the week of 19th May.  We would really appreciate help from any experienced knitters who may be available.  We hope to have knitting classes on Wednesday afternoons, but this is flexible. If you are available to help let Collette or Karen know. Thank you.

Well done to everyone who represented LSP at the Limerick City Athletics Finals yesterday at UL.  Despite a rather wet and miserable day, the boys and girls placed well in their respective categories!  Certificates to the participants will be presented next week.

We had a wonderful visit from the Augsburg Choir to the school.  It was fantastic to have such wonderful young musicians singing in our school, and the interaction between the two choirs was great fun.  Peter Hendrickson, the conductor of the choir, wrote saying that the visit to LSP was one of the highlights of their tour.  It was also the highlight of the year for the LSP Choir and we are grateful for their willingness to visit the school!

Today 1st and 2nd Classes had the privilege of attending a fantastic show, Bláth, at the Lime Tree Theatre from the puppetry group Branar.
