Safety on school yard in the mornings!
Firstly, I would like to thank you for your response to our request that children do not arrive on the school grounds before 8.35am.
For health & safety reasons children should not arrive onto the school premises before supervision is in place as they are not insured. For the safety of everyone the pedestrian gates will be closed in the mornings until just after 8.30am.
Reminder to pedestrians not to walk through the main gates.
Hallowe’en Witch Walk & Cake Sale
We will be holding our annual Witch Walk and Cake Sale on Friday 26th October. Please make sure your child/children do not wear clown outfits as their costume. Thank you for your co-operation.
Teaching Placement: Each year we facilitate students from the colleges of education to complete teaching placements in our school. Over the next 2 terms you might hear your child talking about another teacher in the room for a 3-6 week period and this will be a student teacher. The class teacher supervises and advises on all planning and teaching and remains in the class except during inspection visits.
Demonstration Project on In School and Early Years Therapy Support: We have been accepted onto this Department of Education and Skills project which will see Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists visit the school to advise and support school staff in planning for children. Full details are on the website in the NEWS - Thursday Notes section. We are awaiting correspondence from the NCSE about start dates etc.
