October Newsletter

Crazy hair days, Cake sales, cross-country, hurling and camogie blitzes and much much more. The fun and madness is back in full flow in St. Aengus NS. In between all this fun, the children have assured me that a lot of work been done.

Cake sale and crazy hair day: Well done to the boys and girls who have already collected nearly €2000. The change buckets have been emptied and are filling up again. Which class will win the coveted prize of a week of homework passes?

Children’s concert and Sale of Work: We will have our next fundraiser on Friday the 28th of October in the hall in school. Everyone is welcome to come to the school from 11.00.  There will be tea and cakes in the hall.  The concert will start at 11.30 sharp. It will start with Junior infants and work up through the school. Each class will sing songs or recite poems. Everyone is welcome. Neighbours, grannies, friends etc. There will be a sale of work after the concert. We are asking the children to donate some of their old toys to the sale. You can pick up your child from their classroom and go to the sale of work with your child. The remaining children will have time after the parents leave to visit the sale of work. All proceeds from the coffee morning and sale of work will go the Strain family.

Parent’s Association AGM will take place tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8pm in the school. All new members welcome. It is great way to meet new parents and help the school. The school would not be in such good condition only for the hard work of all the Parents Association.
