Newsletter 2.2.18



2nd February 2018


Dear parents, carers, staff and friends,



Applications for Junior Infants 2018

We are now accepting applications for new Junior Infant children for September 2018. Applications must be received by Friday, 9th February 2018 and we will be in contact with families as soon as we can after that to confirm places. Like last year, we only have space to open one class of 22 children. All children applying must be 4 years old by 30 April 2018.



News this week

Last Friday, 5th Class went to the Ark to see ‘Socks in the Frying Pan’. We are delighted to be part of the Ark’s access programme and received free tickets for this performance.


On Sunday, our Confirmation children led the liturgy at our Family Mass. The children read the reading and prayers beautifully.


On Tuesday, our 6th Class parents were invited to the first session in our ‘transfer to secondary school’ programme. Please talk to Síle McDonnell, our Home School Community Liaison teacher, if you couldn’t make it and would like more information.


On Saturday, our school choir will perform at the ‘Peace Proms’ in the RDS. The children have been practising really hard and gave their classmates a sneak-preview of the ‘Hairspray’ medley at assembly this morning. Good luck to them all – have a great day!



Internet Safety

We sent a text to parents/carers this week about an online game platform called ‘Roblox’. We know lots of children at school use this site to play games. We want parents/carers to be aware that there can be some inappropriate content and especially, that there is a ‘chat’ function which means children can be interacting and talking to strangers online. There is a helpful information sheet about how to keep your child safe online – no matter what the game, overleaf.
