Parents’ Association Christmas Raffle
The Parents Association will be organizing a Christmas raffle this year. It’s a great event that the children have always enjoyed. The money raised from the raffle will go towards a sensory garden for the school. If anyone is in a position to donate a prize for the raffle please contact your class representative on the Parent Association or you can drop in a donation with Helen. We hope to be getting the raffle tickets printed in early December. If you are able to donate a prize we would be grateful if you can let us know by Friday 25th November.

We had a very successful Book Fair last week. A huge thanks to all the parents/guardians who bought books. We have €1090.00 to spend on books for the class libraries. We thank Mrs Campbell for co-ordinating the Book Fair.
This week we will be focusing on the importance of friendships in school and making the children aware of the school’s Anti-Bullying Policy. The Anti-Bullying Policy is on the school website. A hard copy is available on request from the office.
