Monday, 12th December 2016 Weekly Note


As mentioned previously, the annual Christmas plays are taking place this week.  The P.1-P.3 presentations will take place this afternoon at 1.30pm with the P.4-P.7 shows being held on Thursday night at 7.30pm.  All are warmly invited to attend and show your support.  To enable us to get everything in order for the senior plays and Christmas draw, there will be a half day on Thursday.  We ask that arrangements be made to lift your child/children between 12.30-12.45pm when they will have finished their dinner.

Please note there will be no After School Provision for P.1-P.3 on Thursday.

Many thanks to all who have bought tickets or donated prizes for the Christmas Draw.  The draw will take place after Thursday’s school plays, when tea and mince pies will be served, courtesy of the Parents’ Association.


Please note that there will be no After School Clubs this week.  After school provision for P.1-P.3 is still available except for Thursday (as mentioned above).


Christmas dinner is being served in the school this Wednesday, 14th December.  As there are usually very high numbers taking dinner that day, we ask that anyone not wishing to take dinner on Wednesday, please let their teacher know by tomorrow (Tues).  As dinners are ordered in advance, it would be appreciated by the catering dept. to have as accurate a number for ordering as possible.


The school is once again acting as a promoter for the Drumragh Parish Draw next year.  Anyone wishing to subscribe should contact the school before the holidays as the first draw takes place in early January.


A group of P.5-P.7 pupils have been asked to provide some carols and poems for the Senior Citizens Christmas Dinner on Thursday morning.  All pupils selected are invited to bring their tin whistles.


Please ensure that dinner money is paid by Monday, 19th December.  Cheques for school dinners should be made payable to E A Western Region.


The school will close for our Christmas Holidays on Tuesday, 20th December at 12.00pm.

Please note that there will be no school dinners available on Tuesday.

School will re-open on Thursday, 5th January 2017 at the usual time.  On behalf of the entire school community, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas season and trust that Santa will pay a lengthy visit to Tattyreagh on Christmas morning.
