Imlitir 27

7th April, 2014.

Second class pupils will receive their second sacrament, First Confession, tomorrow night in Rathfeigh Church at 7.30p.m. A big thanks to Mrs Campbell who has prepared the children really well for the night. We thank Ms. O’Donoghue for preparing the choir.

Last September the Department of  Education & Science published new anti-bullying procedures for primary and post primary schools. The Board of Management of Scoil Mhuire Naofa, Rathfeigh has ratified its anti-bullying policy in accordance with these procedures. This new anti-bullying policy will be available to view on the school’s website this week. If you don’t have access to the internet a hard copy of the policy will be available in the office. It is vitally important that all parents/guardians read this policy thoroughly. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the policy please contact me.

All classes will take part in an Easter Egg hunt on the school grounds on Thursday. The children should bring a change of footwear with them to school (boots or Wellingtons) in case the pitch is wet. It promises to be an exciting day. If your child is not to receive any eggs please let us know.

We will have an assembly in the hall this Friday to celebrate Easter with the children reciting poems and singing songs.

If you haven’t already paid school tour deposit (€10.00 for Juniors to Fourth class and €20.00 for Fifth and Sixth class) can you please send in money in an envelope by Wednesday 9th April.

Last week Sixth class brought home an order form for the Confirmation group photograph.

The photographs can be viewed on (the password is on the order form). If you wish to order a copy please send in money by Thursday 10th April in the envelope provided.

The school will close at 12.00 noon on Friday for the Easter holidays. Please note there is a school bus.It is a non-uniform day and healthy lunches are optional. The school will re-open on Monday 28th April. We wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Easter break.
