Our boys’ team are through to the quarter-finals at least after defeating Rathregan last week. A victory over Bellewstown tomorrow would result in a semi-final place. We are playing Bellewstown tomorrow at 1.50p.m. – leaving the school at 1.20p.m. Please arrange a lift for your child if you can’t attend yourself.
Our girls’ team don’t have a game this week. A victory in one of their two remaining games will result in a quarter-final place at least.
The third swimming lesson for the children in third to sixth class takes place this Tuesday. A small number of families have yet to pay. Please do so as soon as possible. We will send out the link for payment again today.
Computer classes with Colm (All Classes) start this Wednesday for four weeks. The cost for the four weeks is €8.00 per pupil. Please send in the money in an envelope with your child’s name and class on it as soon as possible.
Parents’ Association A.G.M.
I have been invited to attend the Parents’ Association A.G.M. on October 11th at 7.30p.m. in the school. (Please note the date of the A.G.M. has been changed from 4th to the 11th October) A vibrant Parents’ Association is vital for our school. We are expecting a big turnout. We hope that at least one member of each household is present on the night particularly with plenty of notice given.
