March Newsletter

Laragh 2 Muff N.S. Newsletter March 2019

School Building:   We hope to commence building of the school this Friday when the school is closed. When construction is taking place, there will be an obvious impact on the school in terms of parking and noise. The health and safety of all staff, pupils and visitors is the primary concern. So again we would remind parents that children should not be left at the school before 9:10 when supervision is provided. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.

Fundraising:   Our Camel Race Night takes place on Saturday April 13th in Murtagh’s Bar. I would appreciate if all cards could be returned by Thursday March 21st. There is more information on both our school website and the Facebook page “Muff N.S. Play Area.”

Closures:   We would remind parents/guardians that the school is closed this Friday the 15th of March and again on Monday for the St. Patrick’s Day Holiday. We are also closed on Friday March 22nd for a staff planning day on the new Language Curriculum.

Sacramental Masses:   The following dates are the last two preparation Masses for the Communion and Confirmation classes. Please note that all the Confirmation Masses will now take place in Kingscourt Church at 6:00 on the following Saturdays.

30th March

Saturday Vigil Mass in Kingscourt-6pm – Confirmation Class

Saturday Vigil Mass in Muff- 7.30pm – Holy Communion Class

6th April

Saturday Vigil Mass in Kingscourt -6pm – Confirmation Class

Saturday Vigil Mass in Muff – 7.30pm – Holy Communion Class

The date for First Holy Communion is Saturday May 25th with Confirmation taking place on Sunday May 12th.

Sport:   Well done to Michael McKeon and Charlie McCormack on their efforts in the recent All Ireland Handball Competition. The boys were representing Ulster in the finals and played outstandingly in a top class competition held in the brilliant facilities of Kingscourt Handball Club. Many thanks to Brendan and all those who helped out. It was a fantastic day for all involved.

Swimming will continue this month for all pupils from 1st – 6th class. Brendan is continuing his coaching with Ms. Marron’s and Mr Byrne’s class.

Seachtain na Gaeilge:   This is taking place all this week. We will have our annual “Seó sa Halla” on Thursday. We would encourage you to engage your child in cúpla focail during the week. The emphasis in our school is on using as much spoken Irish, in as many situations, as possible and, of course, in enjoying using the language.

Board of Management:   There is a meeting this Tuesday at 8:30 in the school. The agreed report to parents is available on the school website.

Mighty Mouth:  Pupils in Ms McNally’s and Ms Marron’s room have been taking part in the “Mighty Mouth” programme for the past few weeks. There is an award ceremony this Wednesday at 1.30pm, where they will receive a certificate for all their hard work.  Parents are invited to attend.
