Coffee Morning in Aid of Galway Hospice

Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the Coffee “Morning” on Friday afternoon to raise money for Galway Hospice.  A big thank you to everyone who baked, made the tea and coffee and gave a contribution.  Over €330 was raised for Galway Hospice.

Dropping Off and Collecting

Many thanks to everyone for helping to make the drop-off and morning collection times run smoothly.  The neighbours have kindly asked we do not enter the estates, either Cimín Mór or Garraí Dhónaill.  Many thanks for your help with this matter.

Contact Details

This week you will receive a copy of all the contact details we have on file.  We’d kindly ask you to return this to us as soon as possible, even if no corrections are required. 

Afterschool Clubs

The afterschool clubs for the first term will be announced next weekend in the next newsletter.  They will start the week of the 23rd September.


As it was rained out, we’ll try again to harvest the beans, potatoes and other things in the garden this Tuesday, 10th September from 14.30 to 16.00.

Culture Night 2019

We are delighted to be participating in Culture Night on Friday, 20th September.  We will recreate the whale and display the various creative products the children made as part of the Creative Schools project from 16.00 to 19.00 in the school.  There will be a creative activity for parents and children to complete together.  Please join us if you can!  We’d also appreciate hearing from parents who might be able to volunteer for the event.

Camogie Excitement!

Congratulations to the Galway Senior Camogie team who won the All-Ireland today.  Thanks to all the children in the school who showed their support on Friday by wearing the county colours.
