Dear Parents/Guardians,

  The AGM of the Parents Association will take place on Wednesday, November 20th at 8p.m. in the Tara Arms.  It is hoped that many families will be represented.  This is a great opportunity to get involved and participate in the support that parents give to the school.  For the last number of years there has existed an excellent two-way communication between the school and the Parents’ Association Committee.  A text reminder will be sent a few days beforehand.


 ♦ In the interest of Health and Safety, the Board of Management asks that you do not bring dogs inside the school gate.


 ♦  Parent/Teacher meetings will be held during the week starting November 18th.

You will be given a date and time for your meeting next week.


 ♦ Our recent Spellathon was again a great success.  The children had a great day and raised €3,631.25 through their sponsorship cards.  The money will be used, as usual, to pay for extra-curricular activities – drama, gymnastics etc.  Many thanks to everyone who contributed.


 ♦ Chloe McCormack (2nd Class) is involved in an “Uncle Ben’s Beginners Cooking Competition”.  The top four entrants in the competition who get the most votes on facebook go through to the final.  The prize for the winner is €5,000 for the individual involved and €10,000 for the school.

In order to be in with a chance of winning Chloe needs votes.  So, I am asking all adults to vote and also pass on the word to friends and family.
