10 October 2017 ~ Comments Off on Maths Week

Maths Week

Hello everyone.

Maths week starts next Monday 16th October and we have a range of interesting activities in the school.

Some classes are doing projects on Money and Finance during the week and all classes will be learning strategy games and maths games with playing cards. A big thank you to the PTA for funding decks of cards for every class!

Some classes need helpers during maths week. Please check the timetable below, to see if help is needed in your child’s class and write a note in your child’s homework journal stating the date and time you are available. Jnr infant parents can send in a note with your child, stating the date and time you can come in. The teacher will get back to you confirming the date and time.

If you can help, please write your note in the homework journal before Thursday 12th October.

Instructions on how to play the games will be emailed home on Friday.

Happy Maths Week!

Sylvia

Traffic Management on School Grounds

5th September 2017.

Dear Parents,

We would like to draw your attention to our parking policy for anyone new to the school community and to remind current parents also.

Motorists

Inside the school grounds

The staff car park is for staff use only unless you have been given a parking permit from the school. To apply for a parking permit, applicants need to email [email protected] requesting the reason needed for a permit. Permits are issued generally to parents who have a mobility issue or whose child has such an issue. The Board of Management will issue a permit once they have considered the written/emailed request.

The designated drop-off areas at the front of the school, in Seolta car park and teachers’ car park are for those with disabled access needs, contractors visiting the school, after school club leaders (only on club business and not at any other times). Parents collecting their sick child before the end of school day are also allowed park in these drop-off zones.

Please do not park in the disabled car parking spaces at any time if you do not have a permit.

Parking outside the school grounds

There are parking areas close to the school: parking in the Skerries Point shopping centre which is free parking is recommended or on the road outside the school on the school side of the road. Please do not park or drop off children at the zig-zag lines both sides of the designated crossing points or at the traffic lights.

(September 2017)

The Gardai are addressing the parking issue with traffic cones in this designated area (zig zag lines). The Gardai are paying special attention to the parking outside the school and in the school grounds from Sept 2017. The Gardai will issue warnings and parking tickets for motorist who do not comply with the parking regulations.

We appreciate your co-operation with this as we endeavour to keep the school grounds a safe place for your children.
