Cake Sale

Calling All Bakers…

The PTA is holding its annual Valentine’s Day Cake Sale this Friday, in the school hall. We need as many cakes and sweet treats as possible, as the more goodies we have to sell, the more funds will be raised for the school. You can give us your goodies on Friday morning at drop-off, but please make sure that all donations are nut-free.

We will have a table at the cake sale dedicated to “free-from” goodies (free from gluten, dairy-free, etc.), so if you’re supplying any such goodies, please label your donations as “dairy-free” or “gluten-free”, so we know how to display them.

For the first time, we’ll also be selling tea, coffee and hot-chocolate at this cake sale, so you can get a caffeine hit along with your sugar hit.

What a great way to kick off your Friday!

Looking forward to seeing you all then. The PTA

Christmas Shoebox Appeal

Dear parents/guardians,

For the past number of years we, as a school community, have supported the Inner City Helping Homeless charity in their Christmas Shoebox Appeal. Every December, we have been amazed at the huge number of shoeboxes donated by children and families in our school. This year we are once again asking for your support with this.

Homelessness is an ever growing issue in this country and Christmas time can be especially difficult for people affected by it. ICHH does incredible work to support people without a home and this is a cause that all children in our school feel strongly about.

We are asking families to fill and wrap one shoebox with items such as soap, toothpaste, gloves etc and bring it to our outdoor classroom on December 13th. You are free to choose who you are filling the box for (Adult/Child, Boy/Girl), but please label the shoebox accordingly. Collection times will be at 8:30, 1:10 and 2:10.

Thank you for your support.

Parent-Attended Assemblies

Parent-Attended Assemblies

We value parents attending our monthly assemblies. It is a considerable support to the school which teachers appreciate and enables parents to get a glimpse of school life on a normal school day. We would encourage all parents who are able to, to come along and attend these.

The dates for these assemblies for the year ahead are as follows: 4/10, 8/11, 5/12, 10/01, 7/02, 6/03, 1/05 and 12/06.

The junior assembly (Junior Infants to 2nd class) takes place immediately after drop-off in the morning. The senior assembly happens at 10 45 am. Assemblies generally last about an hour.

School Closure-Primary Language Curriculum Day

Dear Parents,

I wish to inform all parents of a school closure on Wednesday 4th December.

This is to facilitate a staff training day for all teachers on the new Primary Language Curriculum.

All primary schools in the country are engaged in this training with schools closing on different days. The Department of Education and Skills has notified our school of this date for our training.

I thought it was important to inform all parents at this stage so that they can plan for any child-minding arrangements. 

Best regards,

Tomás
