Monday,8th December 2014 Weekly Note


Many thanks to all who supported yesterday’s Craft Fayre in any way. A very enjoyable afternoon was had and much needed funds raised for the Parents’ Association.

A big thank you to those who contributed towards our home baking stall and obviously a huge thank you to all the members of our Parents’ Association for their efforts both in advance of , and on the day of, the Craft Fayre – a fantastic team effort all round!!


Christmas dinner is being served in the school this Friday, 12th December. As there are usually very high numbers taking dinner that day, we ask that anyone not wishing to take dinner on Friday, please let their teacher know by Wednesday. As dinners are ordered in advance, it would be appreciated by the catering dept. to have as accurate a number for ordering as possible.


Just a little reminder of Christmas Play dates for next week:

Mrs Breen & Miss Mimnagh’s classes – Monday, 15th December @ 1.30pm

Mr Kelly & Mr McElholm’s classes – Wednesday, 17th December @ 7.30pm


Application forms for pupils planning to enrol in next year’s P.1 class are now available in the school. Anyone who is aware of prospective/possible pupils for our school are asked to ‘spread the word’ about the availability of these forms.


It’s Christmas Draw time once again folks! We are acutely aware of the difficult economic climate we are currently experiencing, nevertheless, we respectfully ask for your support via the purchasing of tickets and/or donation of prizes. Thank you in advance for your support.


Pupils in P.1-P.3 are off to ‘Santa’s Grotto’ in Cooley Castles next Tuesday morning as a reward for their efforts on the stage on Monday afternoon – this is a trip all pupils have enjoyed thoroughly in the past and no doubt will prove just as exciting this year!
