  • There is a meeting at 2.15pm this Wednesday for all P4 parents. Fr Gormley will outline the preparation programme for the Sacraments of Penance and the Eucharist- Do This in Memory of Me.
  • Our P1 and P2 teachers requested we make an appeal to parents to donate any life size baby dolls, clothes, prams or other accessories that might be lying around in your homes unused. We would like to put them to good use in the role play area of the playground. They only request baby dolls –not Barbie or any other small dolls.


Congratulations to Ms Carlin and Ms Cullen’s P2 and P3 classes who were the joint winners of the attendance award for the full year 2016/17. Both classes had a 96.7% attendance will is a really excellent result. As a prize they were all taken to the cinema on Friday and photographs can now be found on the school website! Well done to all of you. I’m hoping some of our KS1 or 2 classes can win the competition this year!

Now to you kids! Hope you are all reading the notices! Can you go and pack your school bags with PE kits and swimming gear for tomorrow and bring everything in each Monday.
