(Please note the change of date) Meanwhile, The Senior Infants and 1st Class will perform Children of the World on Wednesday the 18th at 1pm.

Please note that although teachers do not expect a present at Christmas time from the children in their class this tradition can still happen. Like last year, please consider instead of a gift for your child’s teacher, a small donation (€2) as part of Christmas Jumper/non uniform day on the last day of term. The money collected will go towards SVP.

Tickets for the children’s draw are available from the office. Once again the prizes are very attractive. Prizes include an O’Neill’s voucher, a Foyleside Voucher as well as a Smart TV!!!! Tickets are available from Caroline in the office €1 per ticket or €5 for 6. A reminder that all draw cards are to be returned by Wednesday 11th December.
