Shoebox Appeal

Dear parents,

We are the student council and one of our jobs is to choose a charity to work with this year.

Last Friday, we met with Maria Roche and she talked to us about homelessness. She works for a charity called Inner City Helping Homeless and this year they are running a shoebox appeal.

She asked us to wrap and fill a shoebox with items such as shampoo and soap, deodorant and warm clothes. We discussed this and agreed to support the charity.

We are asking children in the school to bring in a shoebox on 8th December with some of these items. We will use the boxes to build a Christmas tree and then give the boxes to the charity.

The student council spoke to children in school at a special assembly today to give them more details.

This is voluntary and we hope that people would like to support this appeal. If you choose to support the charity, we would ask that you fill one shoebox per family only and bring it to school on the 8th.

 

Thank you,

 

The Student Council

Luca, Keva, Finn, Mia, Mathilde

There are currently 8,374 people homeless in Ireland today including 3,124 children.

As Christmas is approaching we at Inner City Helping Homeless are launching an initiative to collect essential items for those who find themselves homeless this Christmas.

We would like parents to consider getting their family involved to make up a Shoebox containing some of these items for the appeal. We are hoping to get one donation per family.   ICHH will make sure that all donations received will be given as presents to Dublin’s homeless community this Christmas, not only rough sleepers but families in emergency accommodation, hostels and refuge centres.

We will be collecting the shoeboxes on December 8th at 8.30am, 1.10pm and 2.10pm at the outdoor classroom. Your support would be very much appreciated

 

Yours sincerely

Maria Roche

Parking on school grounds

Dear Parents,

The Board of Management is currently looking at the situation with traffic, parking and safety of children in relation to this around the school and will address this situation more formally in the near future.

I myself am becoming concerned about the number of cars that are entering the grounds. Some people are parking in the Seolta parking area at the side of the school. We have always asked parents not to drive into the grounds in order to keep all children safe. An exception is made for parents or children who have mobility issues and in this case a permit must be applied for at the office. Parking spaces are for staff only and we also need disabled spaces and the area outside Seolta Pre-school front door kept free and unobstructed for taxis and buses that deliver children to our Seolta ASD preschool.

Parents are encouraged to park in the carpark across the road at Skerries Point Shopping Centre. My concern, and that of the Board of Management is for the safety of yours and every other child in the school.

I respectfully ask that all parents heed this request and cooperate with not driving into school grounds.

Best regards,

Tomás

School Closure Wed 7th February 2018.

Dear Parents,

I am writing to inform all parents of some staff training that needs to take place in the near future resulting in a one-day closure on Wednesday 7th February 2018.

All teachers will be attending the second in-service training in connection with the Revised Language Curriculum at school on that day. This covers new methodology and planning in the way that both English and Irish is taught in school. It includes approaches to developing Oral language, Reading and Writing in both languages. This is happening in all primary schools in the country as directed by the Department for Education and Skills and is part of a three year roll-out of this new programme. Dates for further training over the next three years will be confirmed nearer the times. For any parents who wish to know more about this the following link will provide more comprehensive information:

https://www.education.ie/en/Circulars-and-Forms/Active-Circulars/cl0061_2015.pdf

The Board has decided on the above date for this training and has asked us to communicate it to you with as much notice as possible. We thank you for your continued cooperation.

Best regards,

Tomás Hickey, Principal.
