Dear Parents/Guardians,

The pupils are now well settled back after the Christmas break and we look ahead to what we’ve planned for the next while.

♦ Gymnastics: This term Carolanne will take all classes every Monday.

♦ “Wake Up, Shake Up”: Starting on Thursday 26th next, all classes will get involved in “Wake Up, Shake Up” activity in the yard each Thursday morning at 9.20a.m.  This is a follow on from our very successful “Walk a Mile” activity.  Parents are also more than welcome to get involved!

More details on the website.

♦ We will be celebrating Catholic Schools Week from 31st January to 3rd February.

♦ Please remember – track suit is for P.E. days only.  Each girl is expected to wear proper uniform on all other days.

Bottle green pinafore/grey trousers.

Bottle green cardigan/jumper.
White shirt/blouse.
Green/white socks.
Tights are to be plain white, bottle green or black.  They are easily available locally.  Please do not ask your child to wear any other colour.

♦ Applications for enrolment are taking place from Monday 23rd January. Forms are available from Fiona.  Closing date is February 10th.

♦ If any parent wishes to start paying towards next year’s book bill, please go to Fiona.

♦  February Mid-Term: School closed Thursday 23rd & Friday 24th

♦  School Closure

We have been informed by the Department of Education and Skills that school will have to be closed on Tuesday February 28th.  This is to facilitate inservice for teachers for the new Primary Language Curriculum which is being introduced to all schools.

We warmly welcome Mrs. Madden (Junior Infants) to the staff and hope that she will be very happy in Scoil Mhuire Lourdes.
