Health and Safety: A reminder to parents to please avoid parking in the yellow box at the front gate. Pupils are also reminded that they are not allowed to enter the staff car park at any time for any reason. The Board of Management cannot be held responsible for any child left on the school grounds before 8.50am. We greatly appreciate your cooperation on these important safety issues.
Minutes from the Board of Management meeting on 25th September have been circulated to all parents. Our next meeting will take place on 20th November.
Maintenance: Thank you to Robert McMahon for carrying out dishwasher repairs and to Thomas Walshe for power washing outdoors and cleaning the gutters. We will be painting the interior of the school over the mid-term break. We are kindly asking for volunteers to help with this project. We currently need parents to help with the painting and to let us borrow equipment such as brushes, rollers, buckets etc.
Celebrations and Occasions: We have had a busy start to our school year. Well done to all who took part in the East Clare Cross Country Competition on 14th September. We had an exciting ‘Challenge the Teacher’ event on 29th September and despite a great effort from all staff the children were triumphant! Thank you to Fr. Tom Fitzpatrick and to all who joined us for our Mass of Welcome. We are looking forward to Maths Week on 16th-20th October. Children will be taking part in plenty of fun Maths themed activities.
