December newsletter

The madness of Christmas is back. Eamon made his arrival today. If you lose keys, glasses or your teabags get stolen it’s that pesky elf Eamon. The school is so busy putting up trees, singing songs and spreading good cheer for all to hear. Check out the website for some elves picked up on our CCTV over the weekend. Remember though Jack Frost is about also so wrap up well.

Carol Service: This will take place in Burt Chapel on Tuesday the 18th of December at 6pm. All are very welcome in what should be a great night for the school and community.

Car park: Please use the car park to pick up and drop off your children. there is ample room at 9.20am, 2.00pm and 3.00pm. To save your embarrassment and mine please adhere to this rule.  The safety of the children is all our concern.

Confessions: Fr. Diggan will come to the school on Monday the 17th to hear the children from 3rd-6th class confessions.

Pantomime: The children will be going to the Waterside Theatre on Thursday the 13th to see the Panto. We are asking for €5 for each child to help cover the cost. The Parents Association and B.O.M will cover the rest.

Enrolments: Forms can be got from the office to enroll your child for the 2019/20 school year. Please return the form as soon as possible so we can get an estimate of numbers for next year.

Building update: Windows are in and walls are being chased for electrics at the moment. Next phase is walls and floors. We plan to overhaul the front of the school to make it something that the whole community can be proud of. We are hoping that they will be finished by the end of February.

Christmas Draw: Some great prizes include a €250 voucher for Smyths, 2 X tablets, meal for 2 in An Grianán hotel and two hampers full of Christmas goodies. The cards will be in your child’s schoolbag tomorrow (Wednesday) so please fill what you can. There has been a huge amount of investment in the school over the last number of months and any contribution however small would make a huge difference to the children. The draw for the prizes will take place on Thursday the 20th in the school hall at 9.35am (during the coffee morning).

Coffee morning: There will be a coffee morning for Temple Street children’s hospital on Thursday the 20th in the school hall at 9.20. The draw for the Christmas fundraiser will take place then. Please come along as we will also have a selection of children from the choir singing some festive carols.
