Autumn Fair

What an amazing success and a phenomenal feat undertaken by the core team from 2nd Class supported by all parents in 2nd Class.  Thank you for being so generous with your time since August enabling the school to raise an additional €18,500 and providing us all with a fun wider school community event.  The up-cycled dresser creatively designed by Marena sold for €210.  Maeve, a past pupil, lost her home made ‘Cat in the Hat’ hat at the fair.  If you have any information on this please contact the school.

Empathising with building issues in other schools

Our hearts go out to all of the schools affected by closure due to health and safety building issues.  Fortunately our construction was not by Western Building Systems.  We have been successfully audited for fire, health and safety by both the Department of Education and an external company.

Trick or Treat for Temple Street

The student council have organised a fund raiser for Temple Street tomorrow.  Everyone is invited to dress up and donate €1.

Marathon

Very best of luck to Jill and Lisa on the Dublin Marathon this weekend.

Dental Check Forms

HSE Consent forms have been sent home with children from 2nd, 4th and 6th classes.  Can you please return these asap as they will be collected from the school on Tuesday 6th November.

Mid-term Break Closing

Safe and happy holidays to all and well done on a great start to the year, your ongoing support from home is appreciated.
