Parents Association

Though there was a small turnout at the recent AGM, there is now an active committee in place.  During the year the committee will be encouraging you to get involved with the school in various ways.


6th class are busy preparing for their sale on Thursday next, December 3rd.  Donations of cakes, buns etc. would be appreciated on Thursday morning.


Tuesday next,  December 8th is a Church Holy Day – the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.  We will all attend the 11.30a.m. mass in the Parish Church on that day.


Mt. Wolseley Singers are holding their Annual Christmas Concert in this school on Saturday December 12th at 8p.m.  5th class will be taking part.  Tickets (€10 each) are available at the school.


School Christmas Concert

We will hold our school Christmas Concert on Wednesday, December 16th.  The concert will take place in the Parish Church at 11.15a.m.


Our school mass is on Friday 18th December at 9.30a.m. in the Parish Church.  Please ensure your child is in school on time that day as we will be going to the Church without delay.  This mass will be an occasion where family members can join in our Christmas Mass celebration.

After mass the Parents Association, with help from 6th class, will host a coffee morning in the Parish Centre.  This will be an opportunity to call in, have a cuppa and a chat during the busy days of preparing for Christmas.  More details later.


Keelin has now finished.  However, Carolanne will be with us in January for gymnastics.  John Kenny will also be continuing with us for the rest of the year.


We welcome James Smithers to the staff as our new caretaker.
