First Holy Communion
Congratulations and well done to the children in 2nd class who made their 1st Holy Communion last weekend.
Flag Raising Ceremony:
The school celebrated the raising of our Active School Flag yesterday. The Army No. 1 Band entertained everybody with top quality music and the sun shone brightly for us all! The school is now proudly flying our latest Flag.
Code of Behaviour: I would like to encourage all parents/guardians to talk to your children about their behavior and having respect for each other in school and outside of school. Conversations happen between children after school and on their way home from school which are not always appropriate or respectful. Please stress the importance of treating their friends/peers in a respectful and appropriate manner.
A Second Hand Uniform Sale will take place in June – this initiative is an opportunity to enable parents dress their 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.
After School Football Training: has now finished. Thanks to all the boys and girls who turned up in such big numbers this year.
Please send a self-addressed envelope with a stamp on it to the class Teacher before Friday 1st June in order to receive your child’s school report. Reports will be posted on Friday 15th June.
**REMINDER regarding Information Talk ‘Supporting your Child to Build Healthy Friendships and Relationships’ on Thursday 7th June at 7pm- 9.30pm in our school hall. Full details are available on the school website. Please sign and return attendance slip overleaf
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:
1 child €80
2 children €150
3 or more children €200
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.
Book Rental to be paid before 6th July:
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:
1 child €30
2 children €50
3 or more children €50
There is an example spreadsheet with a breakdown of payment on the school website for further clarification.
If you require further information please contact the school office.
Thanks for your continued support and co-operation.
I wish to attend the ‘Supporting your Child to Build Healthy Friendships and Relationships’ on Thursday 7th June at 7pm- 9.30pm.
