Thank you to those who supported our recent clothing collection. As always, your help is greatly appreciated. After a few false starts, the collection was taken last week and we are happy to report that we filled the collection van again this year! We will receive a cheque for €830 in the coming days. The money will go towards replenishing the yard toys and equipment in preparation for the spring.
Group 305, Irish Pilgrimage Trust:
Eoghan O'Grady, Group Leader of Group 305, called to the school last week to collect the proceeds of our Halloween Dress Up Day. Evan, our youngest pupil, and Emma, our eldest pupil on the day, presented Eoghan with the cheque for €300. Eoghan was very thankful for our contribution so thank you all once more!
Time to Read:
The Time to Read programme in 2nd class is well underway now. The children are thoroughly enjoying reading with their buddies. The children will visit the Fexco office in January. Thank you again to the fantastic volunteers from Fexco, as well as some of our own parents and grandparents who have volunteered to read with the children so no child was left out, who will continue to visit our school again after Christmas.
Finally, I would like to thank you all for your support this term and to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
