New Board of Management
The term of office for new boards of management in schools is from 1 December 2019 to 30 November 2023. The Board manages the school on behalf of the patron and is accountable to the patron and the Minister.
Our new Board of Management will be in place and taking over the reins from 1st December. We will be holding our first meeting of the new Board next Tuesday night 3rd December. I would like to acknowledge and am very grateful for the commitment and contribution that all members of the Board are making and I wish each and every Board member every success in their role.

Santa visiting the school!! Santa is visiting the school next Wednesday 4th December. He will arrive here in his sleigh and all the children will get to see him. To mark the occasion we are holding a Christmas jumper/hat day on 4th December (please do not buy new clothing for this). Children can bring €2 with them to school on that day. Monies raised will be donated to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
Reminder: Our annual Christmas Performance/Show will take place on Monday 16th December at 9.15am in the main hall. As only Junior Infants, 1st, 3rd and 5th classes take part in the performance, only parents of these classes are invited. This ensures there is enough space for all. Teachers will be in contact regarding what to wear etc over the next few weeks.
Reminder: There will be NO rehearsals for the Musical today due to parent/teacher meetings.
The Late Late Toy Show tomorrow night 29th November marks the beginning of the Christmas season for many people! If you’re planning to stay in to watch it we hope you have a lovely enjoyable evening!
SAFETY NOTICE DURING WORKS
The staff parking will be further reduced next week which will necessitate staff having to park at the back of the school. Please remind your children to take extra care when arriving and leaving school.
Yard Supervision in the mornings - the school grounds are only supervised from 8.35am in the mornings.
Afternoon: The set down area is only for parents who have a parking permit.
I would appeal to parents/guardians to remind your children to exit the school yard at the end of the school day in an orderly and respectful manner. In conjunction with the school rules, please ask them to use kind hands, kind feet and kind words.
Thank you for your co-operation with the above.
