Laragh 2 Muff N.S. Newsletter April 2018

Sponsored Walk: I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported our annual fundraiser. So far we have raised €2878.00, with some cards and money still outstanding.   This money will be used to pay for school art supplies and also subsidise a number of events for the pupils in areas like drama, music, art and sport.

Sacramental Classes:   The final preparation Mass for Communion and Confirmation classes will take place on Saturday April 28th in Muff Church. The Retreat for 6th class will take place on Thursday May 10th. The Bishop has contacted Fr. Gerry asking for all 6th class pupils to have a Mass Missal and Rosary Beads for the Confirmation Mass. More information is available on the note attached for Confirmation pupils.

Congratulations: Well done to Erin Smith who had her poem published in a book by Columba Press, called “Fáilte Pope Francis”. This book contains work from pupils all over Ireland to mark the Pope’s visit in August.

Swimming:   The 1st, 5th and 6th class will continue their swimming for the month of April.

GAA:   With the weather hopefully going to improve over the next few weeks, football will begin for the girls starting next week on Tuesday April 17th. This will take place every Tuesday for the next while in Kingscourt Pitch from 3:30 – 4:30. All girls from 3rd to 6th class are invited down. The emphasis is on participation, enjoyment and improving skills. The boys will begin later in the month,

Soccer:   We have two boys teams participating in the Schools Soccer Blitz that takes place on Wednesday this week in Cootehill.

Community Games Art:   We had 12 medal winners in the Kingscourt Community Games  Art Competition.  All who placed in 1st & 2nd will attend the County final in Bailieborough Community School this Saturday April 14th at 2pm.  We wish them the very best of luck.

School Self Evaluation:   We are beginning to look at the area of spelling in the school as part of the new Language Curriculum. Please note that the end of year standardised tests take place the weeks of May 21st-24th and June 5th – 8th.  We would appreciate if you could inform us in advance, if your child will be absent during these weeks.

School Uniform/Possessions:   It is essential that children have their names printed clearly on all uniforms and possessions that they bring to school. We would just remind parents to make sure that their child is wearing the full correct uniform on the correct day and that they come to school with a full pencil case.

Supervision:  For insurance purposes, Parents should be aware that supervision is provided in the morning from 9:10 am or when the bus arrives – whichever is the earliest.
