  1. Snow: Our school was closed for three days during the very poor weather conditions. We reopened when it was safe to do so.   Words of thanks to Richie Foster (Caretaker) and Fás Staff in the parish office for helping in clearing the footpaths around the school to make for safe entry and exit.
  1. Text- A- Parent:  A letter will issue this week in relation to set up a system of contacting parents through text. You will be asked to nominate a mobile number.  The Parents’ Association will be helping in this regard.
  1. Our school website is an excellent resource and a great way of keeping in touch with your child’s school. Check out the site at www.scoiltreasa.ie.  The site is updated on a regular basis with newsletters/ dates/information available.
  1. Computer Room:  As you will be aware, our computer room was flooded twice last year (August and November).  An engineer surveyed the roof and a report is awaited. On receipt we will immediately get a contractor to repair the damage.  We have ordered 16 new computers and will hopefully be up and running by early March. We will be also purchasing laptops, digital projectors and interactive whiteboards for some classrooms.
  1. Swine Flu Vaccination:  You will have received a form/letter in relation to this process.  The date for Scoil Treasa is Friday 12th February.
  1. Credit Union Quiz. We will be holding the preliminary rounds of the school quiz in the next few weeks. We will then select two teams to go forward. To the ‘Regional Quiz’.
  1. Our Credit Union Saving Scheme with 5th/ 6th Class pupils takes place each Wednesday morning. The pupils are saving on a regular basis.
  1. Swimming began for the 4th Classes on January 19th in Templeogue College Swimming Pool.
  1. Our Chess Club will start again at the end of this month. We will be entering a school team in Tallaght League.
  1. Our Book Fair will take place on January 27th / 28th. The Parents’ Association will be working on these days.  Times to follow at a later date.
  1. School Musical: ‘Honk!’ Rehearsals continue for the show on a number of evenings each week. Your child has been informed.  Children to be collected at  4p.m.
  1. Due to the high number of pupils involved in the musical as well as in sport activities, the ‘Homework Club’ has been cancelled for the present. A note to those who availed of this facility will be issued this week.
  1. Whole School Evaluation (W.S.E.)   A team of school inspectors will be in the school for the week beginning February 1st as part of a schools inspection process.  They will visit classrooms, resource teachers, meet with the Principal,  B.O.M. and Parents’ Association. They will then report back to us later in the term.
  1. Attendance: Pupils should attend school unless they are unwell. Recently we have pupils missing school for trivial reasons. Pupils who miss 20 days or more are reported to the N.E.W.B. (National Education al Welfare Board).
  1. Punctuality:  School starts at 9.20a.m. each morning. A small number of pupils are constantly late for class. This is a very bad habit, children miss out on schoolwork and classes are disturbed by late arrivals.  Please ensure your child is on time for school.
  1. Behaviour:  I wish to congratulate all the pupils on their excellent behaviour to date this year.  For the past two months we have had no entry in our ‘Yard Discipline Book’. This is fantastic!
  1. After a long, cold and wet winter outdoor sporting activities will resume in school after mid term in February. Hurling, camogie, basketball and gaelic football will be back.  Your child will be informed of the days by the teacher involved.  After school activities finish at 3.50p.m. each day.  If weather is inclement the pupils will be supervised until that time.  There is no need to phone the school about cancellations.
  1. Do we have your correct contact number?  Many times we ring and have the wrong number. Please let us know if you change mobile.
  1. Thank you for your support at all times and if you wish to speak to me or a class teacher on any matter please contact the school (4513141) to make an appointment.
