Grandparents Day:   We would like to express our appreciation to all the grandparents and parents who came to the school for our Grandparent Day celebration. It was a wonderful occasion for the pupils to be involved in and their mini-assignments, involving bringing in old and interesting items, were a big hit with the grandparents. Many thanks to Gillian and Alison who helped out on the day and to Fr. Gerry who conducted the service.

Fundraising Committee:   We had a very productive first meeting last week with regard to our fundraising drive to pay for a new play area for the children. There will be a further meeting this Wednesday at 7:30 to finalise arrangements for the opening fundraiser. Again all are welcome to the meeting and all help would be hugely appreciated when it comes to running and supporting the actual fundraiser. There will further information given out following our meeting this Wednesday.

Building:   Construction of the new classroom is due to begin next month. The building is due to be completed before the start of the next academic year. The building itself will obviously have disruption associated with it that the Board of Management and staff will plan around, to minimise the effects on pupils learning.

Green Flag:   We are having the inspection for our next Green Flag in the coming week or so. Our Green School Committee is hard at work preparing for this and our classes have completed a number of activities all around the theme of water and water conservation.

School Self Evaluation:   We are carrying on with our work with regard to spelling while also reminding the pupils to use their spoken Irish throughout the day.

Child Protection:   We are reviewing the school’s SPHE policy which will be ratified by the Board in the coming weeks. This is an integral part of the school’s Child Safeguarding Procedures.

Credit Union Quiz:   The Credit Union quiz took part in Kingscourt Community Centre yesterday. Well done to our Senior Team of Darragh Farrelly, Daniel Putnam, Mark Lennon and Niall Gogarty, who finished in 4th place after a tie-break round.  Our Junior team of Oisín Monaghan, Oscar Monaghan, Daniel Morris & Logan Kierans finished in 3rd place after a tie-break for 2nd place. Super performance by both teams!

Sport:   Our handball squad is going to the County Championships this week. Brendan is returning to coaching on Friday of this week. He will coach Ms. Marron’s and Mr Byrne’s classes.

Attendance:   Our school attendance is generally very good with a large number of pupils having missed no days. If the child is sick they should be kept at home. If the child is absent a written note must be provided for the school.
