Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing midterm break. Our news this week is as follows

  • Over the mid-term there were further upgrades carried out to the outside spaces of the school. The path beside 2nd class was widened and tacmaced. In the past this area got quite muddy and waterlogged. This upgrade has greatly enhanced access to the school for 1st class and 3rd class who use the back gate.  The Board of Management also resurfaced the pathways beside Junior Infants and the walkway into Junior Infants. This means that Juniors can now have their own dedicated entrance and exit point.   From today we are asking Junior Infant parents to drop/collect their children at this gate where they only have a short walk directly into the building. We thank you for your co-operation in this matter.    
  • Several classes took part in the recent Credit Union Art Competition. St Tola’s did very well with several winners across a number of classes. Congratulations to the following who all won prizes Rebekah (1st Class), Talulah and Kyomie (2nd Class), Charize and Amelia (4th class) and Lauren (6th class). Well done to all of you!
  • As we have a number of pupils with nut allergies in a variety of classes we ask that pupils do NOT bring nuts or products containing nuts to school in their lunches. We appreciate your co-operation with us in this important matter.
  • As the weather is colder can you please ensure that your child brings a coat to school every day. We will be going outside at breaktimes and it can be cold in the mornings especially. Please make sure that your child’s coat is labelled with their name.

Kind regards,

Mary Dunlea Fitzgerald
