ComputerXplorers After School Club: We are looking at the possibility of hosting such a club in the school next year, if enough families are interested. ComputerXplorers would provide an instructor, laptop computers and other technology. See attached flyer. Sessions would cost €8 per week (in 6-8 week blocks.) If you are quite sure that your child would take part please send a note to the office by Friday (all age groups.)
Sports Day volunteers: We will need many parent helpers on both days-run one of the activity stations, man the drinks table, help with the tidy-up afterwards. Please come to the school at 11.30 on Monday 21st and/or 10.30 on Wednesday 23rd. Thanks!
Payments for school books: Booklists were sent home two weeks ago. As usual, all books will be supplied in class. Please pay the full amount or €60 deposit by the end of June. A receipt is issued for all book payments-check your child’s bag. School reopens Wednesday, 1st September. Please pay the balance on your account by Friday, 3rd September. This year, your child’s books and supplies can only be passed on to their classteacher when the booklist has been paid for in full. Unfortunately, the school is not in a position to make any exceptions to the above.
Eligible families may wish to apply for the €200 ‘Back to School Clothing and Footwear Allowance’: details available at Social Welfare, HSE and Citizens Information offices.
