Notices for week beginning Monday April 24th 2017

23rd Apr 2017


I bet a lot of mums and dads are looking forward to the start of the new term tomorrow! The summer term is always fast and furious starting with our assessment fortnight beginning on Monday May 8th. Attendance during May is SO important as the children undertake these annual assessments.

Club News...
There will be a much smaller after school programme this week due to the 60th Open Day next Saturday.The hall is out of action all of this week while we organise displays etc and so Zumba, netball and football for P3 and P4 will not be on.
Swimming Club will run as usual on Tuesday.
Drama will be moved to another classroom so WILL take place on both Wednesday and Thursday. Tin Whistle will also be on.

Hopefully by mid week we will have sorted and counted all of the money collected for Trocaire so that we can send out a final total but everyone at home and at school really pulled out all the stops this year and gave so much to this charity- Well done!

Please spread the word about the open day. It is simply a chance for past pupils and parents to wander around and relive precious memories. This is not an opportunity we can offer on ordinary school days when the children are in. It does not matter whether you left last year or 50 years ago, everyone is very welcome. The school will be open from 12.30 to 3pm.

Following this, the next big event will be Holy Communion which takes place on Saturday May 20th.

A holiday list for next year was sent home with all the children during Holy Week. We hope that you will use this list to ensure that holidays are not booked during term time.

By Wednesday we hope to have updated our website with all the dates for the summer term.... Graduations, sports days, school shows etc so don't forget to keep checking in. These notices are now always posted on the website too.

Finally, depsite only starting our new term tomorrow the children will be off school next Monday, May 1st as it is a Bank Holiday!
