Healthy Eating Campaign:
Thank you for supporting our Healthy Eating Campaign.  Children are now enjoying a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, crackers, sandwiches and other healthy options in their lunch boxes.  We ask that parents continue to provide their children with such tasty healthy lunches going forward.  Classes have designed posters with healthy lunch ideas which are displayed around the school.
Parent Association:
The A.G.M. of the Parent Association will take place on Monday, 2nd October @ 8pm.  All parents/guardians are invited to attend.  We would like to see lots of new faces at the event.
Cyberbullying Talk
A Cyberbullying Talk for parents will take place in the school hall on Thursday, 28th September @ 7:30pm.  A letter of information was sent home to all families last Friday.  Please send back your acceptance slip if you wish to attend.

As the whole staff will be attending a training day on the new Primary Language Curriculum, you are advised that the school will be closed on Monday, 18th December 2017.  Please note this is an extra day of closure not on the school calendar issued previously.
Safety Notice:
Please do not park in the school gateway at any time.  This is a designated bus zone from 8:50am to 8:55am and in the evenings.  This area must be kept clear at all times.  Please do not double park on the road as it blocks the parking zone.  Parents are requested not to stand blocking the path outside the main gateway forcing children to walk on the road in the path of cars.

You are reminded that the school gate beside the tower opens at 8:50am to 9am.  School begins at 8:55am.  There is no supervision on the school premises before 8:50am.
Our school teams have started the year on a strong foot.  We currently have teams competing in the Cumann na mBunscoil league in gaelic football and hurling.

5 boys and 2 girls from 6th class, 1 boy and 2 girls from 5th class and 2 boys and 3 girls from 4th class.  Best wishes to our 15 athletes from 4th to 6th class who will compete in the inter-schools athletics competition in Kilcock Althelics Club next Friday.
