Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week as we begin the month of April. Our news this week is as follows

  • We have a lovely tradition in St. Tola’s where the parents of 3rd class pupils and the Parents’ Association  organise a communion breakfast for pupils and their families in 2nd class on the day of the First Communion. First Communion this year will take place on 11th May at 11a.m.. Forms went out to parents in 3rd class this week indicating how they can help out. If parents in other classes are available to help out on the day it would be greatly appreciated. If you are available please let Tracey know in the school office and she can pass on your name to the Parents Association.
