DO THIS IN MEMORY MEETING
A meeting for all P.4 parents will be held tonight in St. Joseph’s Hall at 8.15pm. This meeting will explain and outline the ‘Do This In Memory’ programme which prepares P.4 pupils for their First Communion later in the year. All parents are encouraged to attend but pupils are not required to attend. The first ‘Do This In Memory’ Mass will be held in the Sacred Heart Church this Saturday (28th Sept.) at 6.00pm.
Many thanks are extended to our Parents’ Association and others who gave of their time so willingly to participate in Saturday’s ‘Bag Pack’ in Asda.
Our Mass to celebrate the beginning of our new school year will be celebrated in the school on Thursday (26th) afternoon at 1.30pm. All are warmly invited.
Any parent yet to complete and return acknowledgement or consent slips in relation to safeguarding documents issued last week, is asked to return these to the school as soon as possible.
As mentioned last week, tin whistle lessons continue in the school tomorrow for all pupils in P.3 – P.7. We ask that you play your part by encouraging practice so as to maximise the benefit of these lessons. All whistles should be clearly labelled with your child’s name on it. Whistles can be bought in the school at a cost of £6.
