ROAD SAFETY/TRAFFIC CONCERNS
As you may be aware, we are experiencing an increase in traffic in and around the school. With more houses due to be completed soon there will be an even bigger issue around the safety of pedestrians going to and from the school. The lack of any pedestrian crossing, traffic calming system or School Traffic Warden means that pedestrians have to endure the high volumes of uncontrolled traffic. The safety of our school community is paramount and we would ask for your help in letting Kildare County Council know of your concerns. Below is a template for a letter that you as a parent can download, edit if necessary and send it off to Kildare County Council.

Next PA meeting
Wednesday October 12th @8pm
The Parents Association is running a clothing collection in conjunction with Bag2School Ireland.
By getting involved in our Bag2School collection you have an opportunity to sort through your wardrobes and donate any unwanted textiles in the bag provided.
This can include adult and children’s clothes, shoes (tied together please), hats, belts, bags and teddies.
Please NO Duvets, Pillows, Curtains, Bedding, Towels or End-Of-Life Clothing
This will raise funds for the school and The LauraLynn House will also receive an additional 10% from Bag2School. The LauraLynn House is the only Children’s Hospice in Ireland.
In addition it will raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.
Bags will be distributed to each child on Thursday 6th October and should be brought back to school on Monday 10th October. Please try to fill as many bags as you can, don’t forget to ask grandparents, friends and neighbours to have a sort out as well! You can return clothes in any kind of bag.
Many thanks for helping us with this unique fundraising opportunity!
