A Thuisti,

Please find attached the letter from the Board of Management that was sent to all parents during the summer holidays regarding the voluntary contribution. Payments by cheque should be made payable to The Board of Management of Rathfeigh School. If you would like to pay by cash please do so, if possible, this Wednesday (October 2nd). Parents/Guardians who wish to pay by direct debit can collect a form from the office.

There was a Board of Management meeting last Thursday and the issue of ‘Car Parking’ before and after school was discussed. The Board of Management requests parents not to park on the grass verges or in peoples’ driveways directly across from the school. Parents and children crossing the road to cars on the opposite side of the road in this area is very dangerous. The Board also requests parents to reverse their cars when parking in front of the school. Reversing cars onto the road is extremely dangerous and should stop immediately for the safety of all.
