The Board of Management has approved two upcoming fundraisers. The fundraising committee will organise the two events in conjunction with volunteer parents who wish to get involved. Our first fundraiser “Bring A Book, Buy A Book” is scheduled for Friday, 20th April 2018 in the school. The proceeds of this event will go towards the provision of Special Education services in the school. If you are available to help on the day, please give your name to Suzanne Dodson or to Mona in the office.
Congratulations to the Student Council on their recent fundraiser in aid of “Our Lady’s Crumlin Hospital”. €308 was raised on the History Dress Up Day.
Maintenance in the School:
Lots of upgrading has happened in the school over the Easter Holidays. New flooring was laid in three classrooms and the kitchen off the hall is being refurbished at present. It has been dry lined and plastered to date. Thank you to all who helped with this project. Next steps are retiling the wall and painting.
This healthy eating programme starts for Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First and Second Class on Tuesday 10th April. And the programme will start for Third Class to Sixth Class on Friday 20th April. Children will taste a variety of fruit and vegetables daily and will earn rewards. Any allergies should be notified to the school.
We plan to commence work on our school Sensory Garden at the rear of the basketball court this term. Paddy Madden from Marino College of Education will visit the school on Friday to guide us on our first steps. He will also deliver local nature workshops to First and Second Classes on the day.
Well Done to 5th class who completed their Junior Entrepreneur Programme. It was a great success.
