½ Lá ar an 21/12/2018 (Dé hAoine) / Nóta 20/12/2018
Half day 21/12/2018 (Friday)
Beidh páistí ag dul abhaile ag a 12 ar an Aoine. Beidh na páistí ós na ranganna Naíonáin; Rang Áine, Nóirín, Siobhán & Clár á scaoileadh amach 11:55 agus beidh an cuid eile den scoil á scaoileadh amach ón scoil ag 12:05. Iarraimid ar gach duine rialacha na scoile maidir le paircáil a leaniúint.
There will be a half day on Friday 21st December 2018 at 12.00. Children in infant classes; Rang Áine, Nóirín, Siobhán & Clár, can be collected from 11:55 and older children will be kept in class until 12:05. We ask everyone to follow the school guidelines and rules regarding parking at all times but particularly on half days. Parking on the far side of the road (even on the grass) is strictly prohibited, as it causes mayhem. Please ensure child-minders are aware of the school parking guidelines. Children with siblings can go home together at any of the above times. Children are not obliged to wear the school uniform on Friday.
Míle buíochas dóibh siúd a tháinig ar chuairt chuig ár Margadh Geimhridh ar an Aoine seo caite, an 14 Nollag. D’éirigh linn dhá mhíle euro a bhailiú agus níos tábhachtaí ná aon rud eile, chabhraigh an ócáid leis an atmaisféar dearfach atá i gcónaí le mothú mór thimpeall na scoile! Buíochas go speisialta dóibh siúd ar fad a bhí faoi bhun an óicéad a eagrú agus a chur le chéile. Gan bhúr gcabhair ní fhéadfaimís é a chur ar siúl.
Huge thanks to all who came and supported our annual winter fair on Friday 14th December. The total sum of money collected was just over €2000 and all of this money will be put to good use by the school. Even more importantly however, was the positive, happy atmosphere that was felt by all who attended the fair. People were talking, laughing, bargaining and listening to the beautiful songs / music that were performed by various classes and groups. All in attendance were completely captivated by the beautiful singing of our various choirs and feedback from our CD has been very positive.
Events such as this help enormously with the atmosphere throughout the school but they could not take place without the help of our parents. A huge thank you to all who worked tirelessly to organise and promote this event. Particular praise goes to Lisa, to those that oversaw the running of our stalls, to the many volunteers that spent a week preparing the hall and especially to those of you that helped to run our café from morning to evening, go raibh míle maith agaibh – without your help it would not be possible to host such activities.
