    You will receive notification of your appointment early next week.  These meetings are very important and we look forward to your attendance. If you wish to speak to me, on any school related matter, I will be available in the office on these days.
  1. Sponsored Spellathon: 
    We will be running a fund raiser over the next two weeks and ask for your support.  As you are aware funding for schools is inadequate and we need new furniture/equipment etc. throughout the school.  The children will each get a sponsorship card. We ask you and your family to sponsor your child (They will be learning 100 spellings).  Last year’s sponsored spell was a huge success and we raised over €12,000 which was used to purchase 4 interactive whiteboards and laptops. This year we are hoping to get 4 more boards.
