SCHOOL NEWS in Brief…..

19th  November 2015


From the Principal’s desk:



On Thursday 26th November at 10.30am we will welcome two members of the army who will present the school with a copy of the proclamation and a national flag. The Student Council will host the proceedings.  We are hoping that the families of the children who have a direct connection with the events of 1916 will be able to come along to represent the parents of the school. Following this, classes will be engaged in project work on the theme of 1916 which will culminate in a further gathering for all parents on 16th March 2016.


Parent teacher meetings continue next week.


Please do not drive around the school during drop off and collection.


Please check for lost property at the gate in the morning. All items left at the weekend will be donated to charity.
