Welcome back to everybody. I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing break.
We welcome twenty-seven new Junior Infant pupils to Robertstown N.S. They all had a very enjoyable start to big school on Thursday.
We also welcome three new teachers to our school:
Ms. Faye Mulqueen (Senior Infants), Ms. Grace Fennelly (S.E.T.) and Mrs. Aoife Monahan (S.E.T.)
Congratulations to Ms. Coughlan on the birth of her beautiful baby boy Fiachra.
Welcome back to S.N.A. Deirdre Anderson, who returns from career break.
The Board of Management and staff of Robertstown N.S. would like to extend their sincere sympathy to Gemma O’Sullivan and her children Emma, Conor and Cillian on the recent death of Joe O’Sullivan R.I.P.
Please note that Robertstown staff will be promoting healthy living five days a week from now on. Friday will no longer be treat day. This is in line with the HSE launch of the revised food pyramid. We ask parents not to send treats to school on Friday going forwards. A number of children in our school are allergic to eggs and nuts. Please be mindful when preparing lunches to avoid including foods with these ingredients (nuts or raw eggs) in children’s lunchboxes.
We would encourage you to pay fees online using Aladdin where possible. This reduces cash coming into the school. Cash is never kept on school premises at night.
Please ensure you label all coats, jumpers and school equipment.
All absences need to be explained by email or written note. A phone call to the school is not sufficient.
Book Rental Scheme: Please note that children are not to write in any books. Rental books should be returned to school in a clean state at the end of the year. All rental books have been covered over the summer to prolong their life. Parents can help their children to look after their books by emptying out bags each weekend.
School starts at 8.55a.m. The gate beside the tower will be open each morning from 8:50am – 9am. Pupils should not to be on the school premises before 8:50am as they are not insured before this time.
Communicating with School
Our school secretary (Mona) is available to answer calls and queries from 8:55am to 12:15pm and from 12:45pm to 1:30pm. Please note that the office is closed outside of these hours.
I look forward to working together with you this year.
