Welcome back after the Easter holidays. I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful break. The next term is very busy with lots of plans for exciting activities for all classes.
Friday, 28th April:
Swimming starts for 1st and 2nd classes. Please ensure all fees are paid this week.
Training will continue every Thursday.
The school gate opens at 8:50am until 9am. School starts at 8:55am. As children are not insured before 8:50am, please ensure they are not on the school grounds before this time.
Our school is a nut-free and egg-free zone. Please remember to send safe lunches to school with your children. This is to guarantee the health and safety of a number of children in the school who have severe food allergies.
Algebra Maths Project:
5th and 6th class are participating in the Algebra Project that is based on number theory. They are studying prime and composite numbers to enhance their ability to factorise numbers. They will then use their new knowledge to play a maths game that is played in an obstacle course. As part of this activity we will be sending a team of 10 children to a special jamboree day in which they will represent the school and compete against teams from other schools.
Code of Behaviour:
We are in the process of reviewing our school’s Code of Behaviour. The draft copy is on the school website. Please review and email any comments prior to 15th May2017. We hop to complete the review process this term.
May Bank Holiday:
The school will be closed next Monday, 1st May as it is a bank holiday.
Navan Choral Fest:
The school choir have been preparing to take part in the Navan Choral Festival next Wednesday, 3rd May. Robertstown Choir will compete against a number of other school choirs in Leinster by singing 2 songs of contrasting styles. They will be performing the “Beauty and the Beast” theme song and “Wonder” by Emilie Sande. It is a fantastic opportunity for the children and we wish them the very best of luck.
