Active Flag Raising

We will officially raise our Active Flag officially on Friday, 31st January at 11.30.  Padraic Joyce, Galway Senior Football Manager, and player Gareth Bradshaw will visit the school and raise the flag with the whole school community.  Parents are welcome to attend.

Parent-Teacher Association Meeting

The next parent-teacher association meeting will be on Wednesday, 29th January at 19.00 at the school.  All are welcome to attend.  We’ll be planning for the Spring Fair.

Raffle Prizes

As usual, we will be having a raffle in conjunction with the Spring Fair which takes place on Saturday, 25th April.  This is a major part of our annual fundraising, and we’d be greatly for any assistance.  If anyone is willing to approach a possible donor of a prize, please ask Claudia for a letter and to let her know who you are approaching.  We’ll need to get all the prizes by mid-February.

The afterschool will be closed on Wednesday, 5th February to support a national protest taking place in Dublin for crèche and afterschool care providers organised by the Early Years Alliance.
