Notices for the week beginning Monday September 11th 2017

10th Sep 2017

Sacramental News

We hope to be able to confirm the dates for the Sacraments of Penance, Eucharist and Confirmation by the end of this coming week. We will text all parents asap.

Swimming lessons begin this week:

Lessons begin for P5 and P6 children on Thursday September 14th. The cost per child has increased from £1 per session to £1.50 meaning the full course for 15 weeks is £22.50. We hope that parents will contribute £1 a week for 10 weeks or a one off payment of £10 to cover costs. We had considered walking to the pool to alleviate transport costs on top of this but have decided we will continue to use the bus. Please ensure your child attends these lessons, especially if they are fearful of water- staff and coaches will work with the children to overcome this fear and teach them this important life skill.

Swimming Club

This is due to begin again on Tuesday September 19th after school. Details will be sent home this week with all club members.

P2 Meeting

Mrs O Connor and Ms Carlin invite all our P2 parents to a meeting on Wednesday, September 13th at 1.45pm.   A letter was sent home this week to outline the content of the meeting. Please do come along.

P4 Meeting

There will be a meeting regarding Holy Communion preparation for all P4 parents on Wednesday September 20th at 2.15pm in the school hall.  It is important that all parents attend or another family member come along. If this is not possible, please contact Miss Mc Donnell.


Please keep visiting our school website to keep up to date with school news. This week the calendar has been updated and a Breakfast Club price list has been attached.
