28th February, 2022.
Please refer to the e-mail I sent to parents/guardians on Saturday in relation to Covid restrictions in schools being lifted. The children have been excellent over the last two years – dealing with remote learning, mask wearing, staggered breaks etc. To celebrate the restrictions being lifted the children will have no homework tonight.
Tomorrow is Pancake Tuesday. The children in 6th class will be making pancakes for all the children in the school. We are a ‘Nut Free’ school so the children in 6th class can’t bring in products that have traces of nuts. We will need a few parents/guardians to help the children cook the pancakes. So please do your best to help out in the school from 9.15 to 11.30 approximately.
The pupils in 2nd class will be receiving their First Confession in Rathfeigh Church on Thursday March 10th at 7.30p.m.
