NEWSLETTER – Monday 2nd March 2020

Congratulations to our senior quiz team who finished in 3rd place in the Chapter finals. It was a great achievement. Thanks to the parents for their support.

Please note the Covid-19 facts sheet on the back of this newsletter.

Many thanks to the parents who drove to Mount Merrion with the ensemble last week. Conductor, Fergus O’Carroll will work with the ensemble tomorrow in school.

We regularly have children who fall on the court and bang their heads. Where a child is dizzy, has a headache, nauseous or out of sorts we will phone their parents. Bangs to the head must be taken seriously.

Seachtain na Gaeilge takes place in school next week. We will hold an outdoor ceilí, concerts and place emphasis on spoken Irish.

3rd and 4th classes are taking part in a choral festival ‘Crinniu na nÓg’ which will take place in Russborough House on June 13th. They will have a workshop tomorrow in school with two vocal experts from England.

Our boys and girls badminton teams take part in a competition which takes place this Wednesday in Baldoyle. We will leave the school at 7.50am and return by 3.30pm. Children should wear school tracksuits, white polo shirt, black shorts and bring a packed lunch.

The boys football blitz which was cancelled last Friday will take place tomorrow at 11am in Baltinglass. A girls football blitz takes place in Baltinglass on Friday next at 11am and we would be grateful if some parents were available to drive.

Geraldine Whyte will travel to the County Buildings, Wicklow this evening to pick up an award our school has received as part of the county environmental awards.

Our student council are working on a project to create a fairy trail on the school grounds. We hope to have this in situ before Easter.

World Book Day is on this Thursday and each child will receive a book voucher to the value of €1.50.

Children from 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes will undertake intelligence tests this week. All classes from Junior Infants to 4th will be given lessons in RSE(Relationship Sexuality Education) this week. A copy of the lessons is available in the office if parents wish to view what will be covered.
