The ‘Stay Safe’ programme starts tomorrow (Tuesday 26th) in all classes from Senior Infants to Sixth class. If you haven’t returned the consent form please do so tomorrow. We will be implementing the ‘Stay Safe’ programme on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next 3 to 4 weeks. The children may have to complete worksheets at home based on what was learned in class and these must be signed by a parent/guardian.
Our Under 11 Quiz Team will take part in the Credit Union Chapter Final this Friday (27th) in the Pillo Hotel Ashbourne at 7.30p.m. They have been practising hard over the last few weeks and we wish them the very best of luck on Friday night. We thank Mrs Vaughan for preparing the team so well since the start of the year.
On Friday I will be visiting all classes to see the handwriting of all the pupils. Please encourage your child to produce neat legible handwriting and praise them for their efforts.
