If these days don’t suit you please contact the class teacher to arrange a suitable day and time. Later this week when we have all the ‘slips’ back the children will be given the day and time of their parent/teacher meeting and they will write it in their school journal. Junior and Senior Infants will get the time of their meetings on a slip of paper. The school will close at 12.45p.m. for all pupils on both days. We ask parents/guardians to collect their child promptly on these days so that meetings can start on time. There will be a school bus on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th at 1.00p.m.
Our boys team were defeated in their semi-final last week by a strong Castletown team. Our boys showed great heart and determination throughout the game and they can be extremely proud of their efforts this year.
