Winter Break

Our final day of the term is Friday, 22nd December.  We will have an early dismissal that day, with the infants finishing at 11.50 and the rest of the classes at 12.00.  We return from winter break on Monday, 8th January.  In order to help the traffic management, please park safely and leave quickly to free up spaces for the parents from Cuan na Gaillimhe CNS who will be collecting children shortly after that.

Afterschool Clubs

Most afterschool clubs finished last week except for a couple of clubs that have make-up sessions this week.  There will be no choir this week, but it will resume on Monday, 8th January.  A new series of afterschool clubs will be advertised soon and will commence in the second week of school after the winter break. 

Jazzy Winter Jumper Day

On Thursday, 21st December everyone is invited to wear a festive or wintery jumper, and we will have a collection that day to support Galway Simon Community, an organisation that helps people in our community who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.  Thanks in advance for your generosity.

Lost and Found

We have a number of items in the lost and found box by the office and would ask families to check for any missing coats, hats, gloves and scarves.  A friendly reminder that it is extremely helpful if you write your child’s name on the tag so we can return items easily.

Collecting Children at Hometime

We’d like to invite parents of children in 1st Class and up to enter the yard and walk up to your children in the afternoons when collecting rather than waiting outside the gates.  Thanks!

Hot Meals

We are pleased that our school has been chosen to participate in the free hot school meals programme.  We anticipate this will begin in late April.  More details will follow soon.

Best Wishes to Tony

Tony, our postman for many years, retired recently, and the children of the Student Council presented him with cards made by the children of the school and a gift from our school community.

End-of-Term Assemblies

We have enjoyed three fantastic end-of-term assemblies last week and will have the final assembly for 1st and 2nd Class tomorrow at 13.15.  Many thanks to the children and staff for all the effort in preparing for them.  Also, thanks to all the parents for the fantastic food at the potlucks and for attending them.
