Just some information on the H.S.E. Influenza Symptoms:
Welcome Back to everybody. Happy New Year to you all. I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful break.
Junior Infants parents/guardians – please return your child’s Immunisation Form filled and signed, to the class teacher, if you have not already done so.
As you are probably aware the H.S.E. has issued a directive asking parents/guardians not to send any child who presents with flu symptoms to school. This is to prevent the spread of Influenza among the school and local community. Please adhere to this advice.
Any remaining enrolments for September 2018 should be submitted to the school before the end of January 2018. Siblings are not automatically enrolled in the school. Forms are available from Mona in the office or can be downloaded from our school website at http://robertstownns.ie/?attachment_id=6722
Dear staff, parents and students of Robertstown School,
The St. Vincent de Paul wishes to thank you most sincerely for the huge donation of food that was received last week. Your school made a big difference in our effort to help families this year and we are so grateful. The food that you donated only goes to families that are struggling in our parish. We were able to do up lots of really good food hampers for those in need last Saturday.
If there is anyone who would like to get in contact with us our number is 0852095220. Your call will be dealt with in the strictest confidence. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.
Mary (on behalf of SVP)
