The Stay Safe Programme continues this week. Worksheets to accompany the lessons may be given as homework and must be signed by a parent or guardian. It is important that you use these to discuss the content of the lesson with your child.
We would like to thank the Parents’ Association for their large contribution towards the purchase of mathematical (problem solving) resources. The support of the Parents’ Association over the last few years has been invaluable and we thank them for their continued support.
Our quiz team took part in the Meath Credit Union final last Friday. They scored really well on the night but unfortunately didn’t make it through to the All-Ireland final. They represented the school really well and we are very proud of their efforts. A big thanks to Mrs Vaughan for preparing the team so well.

I visited all classes on Friday to look at the handwriting of all pupils. The standard of handwriting in each class was excellent. The childrens’ handwriting is on display in the corridor and parents/guardians are welcome to view these at any time.
