A Chairde (Dear Friends),
I have been waiting patiently to welcome you all back and to do my January update as I was aware of some exciting news since our return in January. Our planning application for our permanent building has been notified to the national press today. Notice of our planning is in today's Daily Mail. This is testament to you all but especially to our start up committee and campaign group setup in 2012. This is our first milestone reached after months of canvassing. We will have an information evening in the coming weeks where we will display the plans for our fabulous new school.
I would sincerely like to thank you all for attending and volunteering at our Winter Concert. Ticket sales raised €2,070 for our school. This will assist in the day to day running of our school and enable us to purchase resources for our classes. Well done to all the children and a special thank you to all our staff for their hard work and dedication.
Our PTA's next meeting is TONIGHT at 8.00 pm in Caroline's JI Classroom. All parents are welcome.
Just a gentle reminder that school opens at 8.30 am and formal teaching begins at 8.40 am. Roll takes place each morning at 9.00 am. Any children arriving after this time will be marked as late.
