Dear Parents/Guardians

Welcome Back

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a lovely summer. Thank you for sending your child back to school looking so well in their uniforms with their books and healthy lunches. All the children are settling in very well and we are looking forward to working with you, the parents, for the education and development of your children during a new school year. We would like to remind you that all information regarding our school is available to view on our website and the Thursday note is included there each week. As this is the beginning of a new school year we would like to highlight the importance of good school attendance and the positive effect this has on your children. Let’s make this year a great year for your children.

If a pattern develops Parents/Guardians will be invited in to discuss why their child is late for school.

I want to acknowledge the sincere efforts being made by all parents/guardians to pay the General Purpose fees to date and I want to thank you for same.

Scoil na Naomh Uilig, Newbridge is planning an extravaganza night of dancing, fun and frolics in the main ballroom of the Keadeen Hotel on Thursday 13th November 2014. Sixteen couples will battle it out in front of a celebrity judging panel and their families, friends, colleagues and respective club mates to win the inaugural Scoil na Naomh Uilig Strictly Dance title 2014. We are urgently looking for parents to join our team as dancers. Staff of Scoil na Naomh Uilig are quickly signing up and rushing to find their dancing shoes but we need parents to come on board and show them the moves! If you are interested in being a dancer and fundraising for our school library or you know anyone who would enjoy it please fill in the form below and return to class teacher by tomorrow (Friday 29th August 2014).

Thank you for your co-operation with the above.
