Early Dismissal and Bank Holiday
A reminder that the school will have an early dismissal tomorrow (Friday, 3rd June) to facilitate a training session for teachers on the Primary Language Curriculum. The day will end for infants at 11.50 and 12.00 for other classes. Also, the school will be closed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next week. We will re-open on Thursday morning, 9th June.

Spring Fair
Sincere thanks to everyone who contributed to making the Spring Fair such a wonderful occasion! Without a doubt, it was a great day for pupils and parents. In addition to being an enjoyable day for our school community, we raised close
to €6000 to support arts and sports programmes! The Board of Management, Parent-Teacher Association and staff will work together to decide how best to allocate the funds raised for the coming year.

None of it would be possible without the help of the many volunteers. A special word of thanks to those parents who met over the past few weeks to make preparations. Many thanks to everyone for buying and selling raffle tickets. We are grateful to all the bakers who provided lovely things for the café. A big thank you to the craft market stallholders and workshops leaders. A special mention should be given to 4th
Class for creating an amazing and very popular obstacle course. Huge thanks to the face painters, the parking attendants and the volunteers in the café, at the welcome
desk and outside with the carnival games. Finally, we are grateful to all the local businesses who donated such great prizes for the raffle:
