October News!

We are holding our annual Halloween Disco next Friday 24th October. Parents are asked to contribute €2 per child towards the expense of running the disco. Children can wear Halloween costumes, however there is no obligation to do so.
It has always been a tradition that parents have been welcome to attend at the time their child is at the disco, however Ms Kirwan would like to give a few reminders to ensure the smooth running of this event.

  • Photos: We would ask you to respect the privacy of other people's children and of the school staff by only photographing/recording your own child.
  • The nature of the Halloween disco is participation and fun, so if you come be prepared to dance!
Recently it has become aware to Ms Kirwan that a small number of parents are smoking on the school grounds and outside classrooms. The Board of Management has advised that all parents be reminded that the school grounds are a no smoking area for obvious health and safety reasons. 
Please do not smoke on the school grounds.

Finally to remind you all that mid-term break will run from Monday 27th October until November 3rd. We wish you a safe and enjoyable Halloween break.
