Line of the Week Champions!

The boys in Room 3 and Prefab 12 were the worthy winners of our first Line of the Week challenge for 2019. Well done, boys!

There were great celebrations in both rooms last Friday after winning the yard trophy for being the best line at lining up after the bell goes 🏆

This is what the boys had to say…

Our class have been working extremely hard on our lining up recently, and last Friday the hard work payed off!
We made everyone proud when we received the trophy for Line of the Week.
We’re going to continue to do our best and see if we can retain our title for next week!

Christmas Arrangements

Dear Parents/Guardians

As always, December is a busy time of the year at school. Please see below for important dates and times.


Christmas Concerts

The boys are working in class groups and will do a little show in the School Hall. You are invited to come to see your son on the stage at the times listed below. Each show will last approx. 20 – 30 minutes. The boys will be allowed to go home after their performance if you wish to take them. Please allow them to return to their classroom and you can collect them from there.

Tuesday 18th December         12.30pm – Junior Infants 

                                                         1.45pm – First Class

Wednesday 19th December    12.45pm – Senior Infants (including Ms Hartnett’s ASD Class)


Christmas Charity Collections

We all know that this time of year can put a lot of demands on families so we try to do our bit to ease the burden. This year we have two ways to help those in need. We are collecting non-perishable food and toiletries for Crosscare. Please send any donations in to the class teacher before Monday 17th December. We are also going to hold a Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 20th December. The boys may wear their festive jumpers and bring in a suggested donation of €2. All money raised will be donated to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. We will also leave donation boxes in the hall on the days of the concerts for anyone who wishes to donate then. Thank you in advance for all donations.


Special Visitor

A little bird has informed me that we may have a very special visitor to our school on Thursday 20th December. Hopefully, he (or she!) will catch everyone being good!

Kind Regards

Clodagh Farrell
