Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week as we head towards St. Patrick’s day. Our news is as follows

  •  We had the Planetarium here in the school yesterday and today. Every class got to spent a class learning about planets and our broader world. The pupils got an opportunity to ask questions and engage with the presentation. The pupils really enjoyed this experience. Thank you to the Parents Association who funded this visit.

  • As stated last week we have re-scheduled World Book Day to run tomorrow Friday 16th . Pupils may dress up as a character from a book if they wish. There is no need to go out a buy a costume for this – let your child use their imagination and use what they can find at home. If they already have a costume at home that is great.  If they do not wish to dress up that is fine and they can wear their uniform as usual. Please make sure that any costumes are weather appropriate.
  • 6th class will perform their play Annie agus Oliver in the Munster round of the Feile Dramaíochta in Glor in Ennis today. They performed the play on Tuesday last for pupils from 1st-6th class and they were fantastic. We wish them the very best and have no doubt that they will do us proud. 5th class will go along with them to Glor to support them.  Go n-éirí an t-ádh libh Rang a Sé!
  • On Tuesday next the pupils in 6th class who are making their Confirmation will have the Ceremony of Light in Mary Immaculate Church at 7p.m. Pupils must wear their school uniform. We wish all the pupils well as Confirmation is not too far away.
  • Best of luck to our Girls’ basketball team who will play Ogonelloe N.S. tomorrow in the next round of the Marian Keane memorial basketball competition. We wish them all the best.
  • As St. Patrick’s day is Saturday the school will be closed on Monday as it is a public holiday. I would like to wish all pupils, staff and parents Beannachtaí do La Fheile Phadraig.  The school will close for Easter holidays on Friday 23rd March at 12p.m.


Kind regards,

Mary Dunlea Fitzgerald, Principal
