28th August, 2014.
Welcome back everyone. The summer holidays seem like a distant memory already. We would like to extend a very special welcome to our new Junior Infants. We are confident that they will settle quickly into their new surroundings. Junior Infants will go home at 12.00 noon up to and including Friday 5th September. From Monday 8th September the Junior Infants will go home at 1.40p.m.
It’s great to come back after the summer holidays with all the childrens’ school books organised. A huge thanks to the Parents’ Association, and in particular Bridget Copeland, for having the school books ready. We ask the children to be extra careful with their books as they need to be passed on in good condition.
If you have any concern about any aspect of your child’s schooling please contact the school and make an appointment to see the class teacher. Parents must sign their child’s journal daily when homework is completed and check also for notes. The notes can also be found on the school website www.rathfeighns.org.
Standardised Tests in English and Maths for all children in first to sixth classes will take place from May 25th to May 29th 2015. These are very important tests and we respectfully request parents to have their children in attendance for these tests.
At the start of each year we ask all parents for their permission for their children to participate in certain activities. Please read the Parental Permission Form and tick the relevant boxes and return the form to us as soon as possible.
The school calendar can be found in the front of the childrens’ homework journals. Junior and Senior Infants will bring home a copy of the school calendar today.
