After-School Dance Club

After-school dance club for 2nd Class will be taking place in the school every Wednesday from 2:40pm-3:30pm, beginning on the 9th October. The dance club will give children an opportunity to enjoy creating and performing their own dance compositions in a fun and relaxed environment. Unfortunately, there will be a limited number of places. In order to give as many children as possible a chance to participate, there will be two groups of dance club, Oct-Jan and Feb-May. Please sign the form your child brought home and return it to their teacher as soon as possible

Joint Parents' Association

St Patrick's set up a Joint Parents' Association in May this year. At present, we have seven members and are hoping to recruit more. If you are interested in joining, training will take place on Tuesday 24th September 9:15-11:45 in St Patrick's Senior School. You are under no obligation to join if you attend. There is no cost for the training.
Contact Clodagh for more information.
Parents/Guardians
You may be aware that the annual budget has been brought forward to October this year in order to deal with the country's current financial difficulties.
Each of us can play a part in letting our politicians know that we do not want our children to pay for the financial situation the country finds itself in. They did not create the problem so they should not have to pay for it.
The National Primary Education Alliance, comprising all the partners at primary level has come together to call on Government to stop any further cuts to primary education.
We are asking you to contact your local T.D. either by using the postcard given to your child or by email to register your objection to any further cuts.
The politicians in this area are as follows.
Minister Joan Burton constituency.office@welfare.ie
Minister Leo Varadkar minister@ddtas.ie
Patrick Nulty patrick.nulty@oir.ie
Joe Higgins joe.higgins@oireachtas.ie

We would like to thank you for your continued support.
