Parents’ Association A.G.M.
The Parents’ Association A.G.M. takes place in the school this Thursday (October 4th) at 8.00p.m. It is very important that at least one member of each household is in attendance. I will be in attendance at this meeting to answer questions relating to the school. I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting.
Every Friday morning a member of Tara & District Credit Union visits the school. This a great opportunity for the children to get into the habit of saving money. We have forms in the office if you would like your child to join the Credit Union.
Accord facilitors will be delivering the RSE programme to sixth class pupils on Wednesday October 17th. This programme compliments the Social, Personal and Health Education curriculum. Please return the consent form as soon as possible. The RSE policy can be viewed on the school website. A hard copy is available from the office.
After winning ten consecutive games the boys’ gaelic football team experienced defeat against Skryne last week. Despite having just 13 players and the whole forward line consisting of pupils from 3rd and 4th classes they played very well and lost out narrowly. I was exceptionally proud of their efforts. They are playing Donore in Skryne this Wednesday at 1.30p.m. We will be leaving the school at 1.10p.m. We will need help with lifts.
The Girls’ football team don’t have a game this week.
