Thank you to all those who have paid for the 3rd and 4th swimming classes in the new year.

Giving Tree / Shoebox Appeal:
The response to the St. Vincent De Paul Giving Tree has been extremely generous.  This is a real sigh of faith in action and will make a real difference to the lives of local people who are less fortunate.  Please continue to send in new gifts for adults and children for under the Christmas tree.  These gifts will be distributed locally by the St. Vincent De Paul.
Thank you to the families who dropped Christmas Shoeboxes for Team Hope.  The shoes boxes were collected from the school last week.

New Staff:
We welcome Ms. Jennifer Hughes to our school today.  We send best wishes with Ms. De Araugo as she goes on maternity leave.  Ms. Coughlan is now teaching Senior Infants for the duration of the maternity leave.  Ms. Hughes replaced Ms. Coughlan as Special Education Teacher.

Enrolment Applications for September 2017:
You are reminded that enrolment applications for September 2017 should be submitted to the school from now until Christmas 2016.  Forms are available on the school website or from the office.

Christmas Plays/Concerts:
Junior Infants will host a Christmas show for their families on Friday 9/12/16 @ 1pm.
3rd (7pm – 7:30pm), 4th (7:30pm – 8pm) and 6th (8pm – 8:30) classes will also take to the stage on Thursday 15/12/16.  At present it is hoped that the prefab at the rear of the hall will be removed by this date.  This structure restricts the maximum number of people the hall can hold due to fire safety regulation.  More details will follow as soon as I know more.  On the date (to be confirmed) that the crane removed the prefab there will be no parking at the front of the school.

Christmas Card:
The final collection of money for the Christmas Cards is on Wednesday 30/12/16 @ 11am.  No monies will be taken after this time and date.
