April newsletter

The year is flying by and we remain as busy as ever in school. The weather doesn’t know what it’s at so remember your coats, gloves, and hats as the children will be outside as much as possible.

Library: We are putting the finishing touches on our new library. The structure is in place and we look forward to welcoming parents to the official opening in May. More details to follow. Thank you so much for all your book donations and we urge anyone who has unused books at home please donate them to the school.

Ukrainian donations: Once again the community has answered the call for our new children. There was great excitement last Friday when the children started and their smiling faces reminded all of us here about the importance of school. We now have enough donated uniforms. Thank you.

Lá Glas: We collected €640 for our “Green day”. We initially said that we would give this to UNICEF but when we discovered that we would have Ukrainian children coming to our school we diverted the funds to buy uniforms, school books, etc. for the children.

Parents Association: A massive thank you must go to our Parents Association who handed over a cheque for €11,000 to the school. This was the money that was collected for the Euromillions tickets and other smaller fundraisers. Thank you to everyone who helps and supports the school. The money is being invested into the new library, new science, music, and art supplies for the school.

Easter holidays: The school will close this Friday the 8th of April at 12 noon. The school will reopen again on Monday the 25th of April. There will be no after school this Friday.

Morning club and afterschool: We are now over one month down in our morning and afterschool club. It has been very successful and the children are, as always, well behaved and having fun. There are limited spaces left so please contact the school if you wish to enroll your children.

GAA: There is huge excitement every day with our in-school competitions. We have also been involved in inter-school games in Gaelic football and hope to have more hurling and camogie after Easter.

First Confessions: This will take place at 6:30 pm in Burt Chapel. We wish the boys and girls the very best. There are so good it will take them some time to think of their sins.

Covid 19: I would ask everyone to remain vigilant with regard to covid. If your child has any covid symptoms they should not come to school. Please contact the office or the teacher directly through Seesaw to inform the school.
