Notices for the week beginning Monday June 4th 2018

3rd Jun 2018

Many thanks to all the P4 children and parents who attended the final Do This in Memory of Me Mass this morning. An invitation to call up for a last visit with the children has been extended Mr Denis Feeney, the coordinator. He will call to see us in the week beginning Monday 11th.


All clubs are now over for the year bar swimming on Tuesday of this week. The Annual Schools Gala takes place on Wednesday and that will also conclude swimming.



With the weather so hot these days, please remember to put sun cream on your children every day.

A reminder who are P7 girls moving to St Cecilia's, that your induction day is tomorrow June 4th. You will be collected from and returned to Holy Child.

The Dairy Council are visiting our P5 children on Wednesday.

P6 are heading to the University of Ulster on Wednesday too. They will receive their certificates for taking part in the Dragons' Den style Take up the Challenge Programme.

P7s will continue their cycling proficiency programme on Wednesday.  They will also attend the Fan the Flame Mass in Celtic Park on Thursday June 7th and a ceilidh in An Culturlann on Friday. Busy week ahead for our 7s!

There will be a talk for our new Nursery Parents in the school hall on Tuesday, June5th at 1.30pm

Tomorrow is the LAST day for bringing back questionnaires. Counting will begin on Tuesday! Many thanks for your support with this work.


Sport Day

A detailed letter went home on Thursday regarding Sports Day. We hope to  go ahead with this on Tuesday, weather permitting. Failing that it will take place on Wednesday. In the unlikely event that it does not take place on either of these days, we will go ahead on the next good day weather wise that we can fit in around all the other activities taking place. This might mean very little notice to parents so hopefully that won't be the case.


Finally, a letter is going home tomorrow regarding tickets for the school show. They will go on sale mid week and as usual our P7s will get one night head start on buying. Max of 4 per family to begin with. Don't forget to check your child's bag for the letter tomorrow evening.

Please check our out calendar page now whilst you are on the website for more dates etc. A newsletter also went home on Friday with lots of info....

Many thanks

Miss Orla Mc Donnell
