Our thanks to the outgoing Board of Management who will end their term on November 30th. Our sincere thanks to Frank O’Reilly, Bernie Dillon, David Wheatley, Deirdre Doyle, Geraldine Whyte, Louise O’Neill and Fr. Douglas for all their contribution and support over the past 4 years. The new Board will include parent’s representatives Elaine Kelly and Mark Hynes community representatives Frank O’Reilly and Liz Gibbons. Fr Douglas and Michelle Brewster will represent our patron, Archbishop Diarmuid Martin. Tommy Brennan and Sandra Cronin will be the school representatives. The new term begins on December 1st.

Many thanks to Antoinette Whelan and Magda Drahuse for helping out with our Halloween Costume Swap last week and to Eilise Dunne for sorting it out.

We will not be taking any further orders for photographs or Folens Annuals. Parents wishing to order photos should contact the photographer directly themselves.

Parents should be aware that 24 hour personal accident insurance cover is included as part of the school fees. If any accident occurs during or outside of school hours where parents incur costs for doctors, hospital charges etc these are all covered by this insurance. Parents need to keep receipts and contact Mr Brennan.

Michael Moran is starting a 5 week block of indoor hurling training for children from 2nd to 5th classes. This will take place each Monday from 2.50pm to 3.40pm in the school hall.

The school Book Fair takes place from Friday next November 22nd to Thursday week November 28th. The children will get a chance to buy books during the day. Parents can purchase books each morning from 9am to 9.20am and at school closing times. The school will receive 60% of the value of books sold which we use to restock the school library and class libraries.

To coincide with the Book Fair homework next week will focus on reading and no written homework will be issued by teachers.

Children who are taking piano, guitar, flute and brass lessons need to practice regularly if they wish to improve. Feedback from Music Generation teachers is that some children are not practising. Ten minutes a day is good practise.

We are considering bringing the school choir on a trip to see the RTE Symphony Orchestra perform in the National Concert Hall in late January. We will need to know how many are interested in going before we can proceed with a booking. Please return the consent slips to Mr Brennan by this coming Wednesday November 20th.

Please find Internet Safety sheet on the back of this newsletter. As you are aware there are many dangers for children when they engage online and parents must be very vigilant and observant regarding their children’s internet activities.

The senior citizens Christmas party takes place this Sunday November 24th at 2pm in the Imaal Hall. Help is needed from 1.15pm on the day. If you are available and can assist us on the day we would be most grateful. Please contact Linda Darker on 087-2178843 for further information.
