  1. Parents’ Association:  The A.G.M. will take place on Wednesday October 7th.  I ask as many new parents as possible to come along and get involved in your child’s school.
  1. Voluntary Subscription:  Each year we ask parents, if possible, to make a contribution to our school. Voluntary subscription is particularly important this year as the cutbacks in the educational sector begin to take hold.  We appreciate and understand that many families are now under financial pressure as well and that such a contribution may not be possible.  However I appeal to those who can, to contribute to the development of our school for the benefit of your children.  The suggested amount is the same as last year - €50 per pupil or €80 per family.  However any amount will be gratefully accepted.   Thank you.
  1. Please return your insurance cover form and fee to school immediately. Closing date on Monday next
  1. Welcome to our new staff member, Ms Lisa Monaghan who will be working as a learning support teacher for this school year.
  1. Sports:  Our footballers - boys and girls have got off to a great start in Cumann na mBunscol leagues.  Hurling, camogie, football for 3rd classes takes place on Tuesday/ Wednesday each week.  Basketball also up and running for all classes.
  1. Our recent forecast card fundraiser amounted to €541.  We will be purchasing a new set of jerseys for our girls’ football team.  If any company would be interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact the office - 4513141
  1. The School Hallelujah Choir practises each Wednesday for the concert in December.
  1. Our swimming classes have started in Templeogue College pool each Tuesday.  Mrs. O’ Neill’s and Ms. Condron’s classes will continue until Hallowe’en break.  Mr Ó Ciaruáin and Ms. Rigney will begin their 6 week session on November 3rd.
  1. Homework Club and Speech & Drama classes have also commenced.
  1. We have installed new security measures in the school. We now have controlled entrance to the school. This will make for a safer learning environment for your children.
  1. Parking outside the school is still a big problem.  We are very conscious of child safety, particularly at home time - 3p.m.  Some parents continue to park irresponsibly and as a result put children in danger.  At times cars and buses fail to pass as a result of illegal parking.  The Board of Management has been in contact with Rathfarnham Gardaí to discuss this ongoing problem. 
  1. Thanks to all parents and pupils for their co operation in relation to the swine flu pandemic. We are continuing to be ever vigilant and would encourage all parents to monitor carefully their children’s health and if a pupil is unwell to keep them at home until they have recovered.
  1. Our Computer Room is out of action at present due to flooding during this wet summer. Many computers were damaged and it will take us a while to get things up and running again. Our computers are now 11 years old and we may need to buy new ones.
  1. Confirmation for our 6th classes will take place on Tuesday May 11th.  A meeting for all parents concerned will be held in the near future.
  1. Uniforms must be worn each school day. Please wear school tie. Ties available in school shop for €4.
  1. Tracksuits, jumpers, ties available and parents can purchase from the shop at 9.20a.m each morning.
  1. Our Hallowe’en Art competition begins on October 12th with prizes for all classes.
  1. School starts each morning at 9.20a.m. A small number of pupils are consistently late. Please ensure they are on time.
  1. Many parents have changed their mobile phone number and at times it is difficult to contact parents when a need arises.  Please ensure that we have a correct number for your child. We hope to introduce a ‘TEXTAPARENT’ scheme as soon as possible when mobile numbers will be entered into a new database.

 

  1. Well done to all the boys and girls for their hard work and good behaviour since September 1st.  Please keep up the good work.
