Dear Parents/Guardians,



Our recent Hallowe’en Day was thoroughly enjoyed by all pupils and staff.  As you know we use Hallowe’en as an opportunity for fundraising.  The money raised goes towards activities for the children.  This year the ‘Spellathon’ raised €3,162.50.  On behalf of the staff and Board of Management I want to say a big ‘Thank You’ and ‘Well Done’ to all those families who contributed so generously.


Parent/Teacher meetings will be held during the week starting 16th November.  You will be given a time and date for your meeting by the class teacher.


A large number of Christmas Shoeboxes have been collected.  These will bring happiness and joy to children at Christmas who, otherwise, might have had very little else to look forward to.  Well done to all who donated a box.


Christmas Cards

Each child has received her sample Christmas card.  All orders and money for cards must be received by Thursday next November 12th.  €8 per pack of 10.


Parents Drop in Service

Tullow Area School Completion Programme in association with Forward Steps Resource Centre will be hosting a Parents drop in every Thursday from Thursday 5th November 2015 from 10.00a.m. – 11.00a.m. in the Parish Centre.

This is a free service that is open to all parents who would like some parenting advice, to meet other parents or simply call in to the centre and have a cup of tea and a chat.  The family support worker from the School Completion Programme and Forward Steps Resource Centre will be available to parents for the duration of the drop in.

For more information please phone Nicola  at 087-7916121 or Jen at 086-8555294.


Drugs Awareness Information Morning

Tullow Area School Completion Programme will be hosting a drug awareness information session on Wednesday 25th November from 10.30a.m. to 12p.m., in the Tullow SCp office.  This service is open to all parents free of charge.  For more information or to book a place please contact Nicola at 087-7916121
