CHILD MENTAL HEALTH TALK THIS EVENING
7TH JUNE @ 7pm-9.30pm IN THE SCHOOL
A Second Hand Uniform Sale will take place on Monday 25th June– the Parents Association has organised this initiative and it is an excellent opportunity to dress your children for school at a reduced cost. Donations of good quality school uniforms/tracksuits are required and can be left into the school during the school day.
School Tours The children will be going on their school tours over the next few weeks. Please ensure they wear sunscreen and bring plenty of water with them.
Reminder of Scoil na Naomh Uilig Dress Requirements
- I would like to remind parents/guardians to buy black leather shoes only, when purchasing school uniforms for your child/children, over the summer months. Pupils are required to wear dark, leather, flat shoes. Canvas shoes/runners are not permitted on uniform days.
- During this warm weather, please be reminded that children are only permitted to wear knee length dark shorts (worn tracksuit/trousers cut short), along with white T/Polo shirts or the school shirt, if they are too warm.
REMINDER: School Reports: Please send a self-addressed envelope with a stamp on it to the class Teacher as soon as possible in order to receive your child’s school report. Reports will be posted on Friday 15th June.

Reduction in GP Fee
The Board of Management is aware of the constant financial pressures on parents/guardians and in recognition of this, has decided to reduce the GP and Book Rental fee as follows:

As was the case last year, we are separating the Book Rental from the GP fee. In order to facilitate the purchasing of books and equipment, we are asking that you pay the Book Rental portion of the fee, prior to the end of this school year.

Senior Infants to 6th class (inclusive) €50 per child
The payment of the GP fee covers 24 hour insurance, school journal, photocopying, folders, art materials, paper, charts, library books, crayons and colouring pencils, white boards, handwriting books, gymnastics, guitar, dance, safe cycling lessons, as well as the provision of laptops and iPads for the children.
GP fee to be paid before 14th September as follows:
