Notices for the week beginning Monday June 25th 2018

23rd Jun 2018

Final notices of the year and my very last posting too! Can I take this opportunity to say a massive, heartfelt thank you to all parents for entrusting your child/ren into our care in Holy Child. It has been such a privilege to get to know each and every one of them over my 10 years.

I hope you all enjoyed the Family Fun Day on Friday... I loved every minute of it myself. There is nothing to beat quality time in great company!

Now to other news....


Apologies about the very late notice but I believe a letter was sent home on Friday asking consent to walk our P3s to Brooke Park on Monday to meet their Ebrington friends. Given the Fun Fair, I fear many of those letters may have gotten mislaid. We cannot bring the children to this event without your consent, especially as they are walking. Could I ask you to make sure to return the consent slip on Monday. Should you not have a copy, simply write on plain paper that you consent to your child walking to Brooke Park on Monday June 25th, along with the child's name. Please mention to family and friends who may not always read the school notices!


Trips this week:

Monday        P5 & 6 & 7

Tuesday       P4 & P5

Wednesday   P1 & P2


Nursery Graduation

This takes place in the school hall on Tuesday morning. We look forward to seeing you all there for this special event.


Leavers' Mass

This takes place in the school assembly hall on Wednesday at 2pm. We would love all of our P7 to have a parent with them if possible so that they can leave in the same way they arrived in P1 - with their family! Could we also request all trophies back from prizewinners on Tuesday morning. They will be presented with a permanent memento of their achievement after the mass.


Friday June 29th 2018

Friday will be a half day closing. P1- P4 at 12.20 and the rest of the children at 12.30...


And then.... School's out for summer! Mrs Cullen and the staff will see you all again on Wednesday August 29th.
