Here a few reminders and notices for the next few weeks –  our Hallowe’en Costume Parade, Mid-Term Break,  a school closure for teacher training as well as a few more. Please read all of this page. If you have any questions, just let us know.

 Hallowe’en Costume Parade – Friday, October 27th at 1:00 pm

Our annual fun Hallowe’en event takes place this Friday at 1:00 pm in the school hall. The children are invited to dress up and show off their wonderful costumes.  There’s no need to spend money –  just take a look at what’s available at home. 🙂

Just a few things:

  • Children wear school tracksuits as usual to school and bring their costumes.
  • The staff will help the children get ready – just be in the hall at 1:00 pm if you can make it.
  • We will be finished at about 1:35  pm, in time for Infant hometime.
  • Please let all children leave the hall before you do.
  • Parents must not go to classrooms at this very busy time.
  • All children will be brought to the yard for collection as soon as they are ready.
  • If you want to collect your 1st – 6th class child at this time, just wait in the yard. Otherwise, all children will stay with their teachers until 2:35pm.

 

October Mid-Term Break

Our school will close at 2:35 on Friday, October 27th until Monday, November 6th. We hope that all of our children (and families!) have a wonderful and well-deserved break after the hard work put in since August 31st. 🙂

 

School Closed for Teacher Training

In accordance with the Department of Education and Skill’s new Primary Language Curriculum roll-out, our school will be closed on Friday, November 17th. This is the date that we have been given and we must close this day as all teachers must attend. We regret any inconvenience that this may cause.

 

Head Lice

Please make sure that you keep checking for head lice. They have become a problem in schools and clubs all over Ireland – anywhere that children are together, head lice will find a way to find a home…

If everyone checks on a Sunday night, we can all do our part to make sure that the children are as head lice-free as possible. Also, please make sure that all children with long hair have it tied up when in school. If you need any advice, your local pharmacist will be glad to be of help.

 

Reading Aloud At Home

This is a regular part of home work for children from 1st – 6th class. Please make sure that you listen to your child read out loud every night as it makes a huge difference to every child’s reading ability and confidence. As always, if you need any help, just ask.

 

School Lunches

To change your child’s lunch for the following week, just log onto www.glanmorefoods.ie and go to ‘Order Now’ before 12:00 pm on Thursdays. Your child’s lunch will be changed in time for the next week.

 

Nut Free Zone

Nut allergies are something that we all need to be aware of. So, we ask that no nuts or food that may contain nuts are brought into our school. Our Board of Managment thank you for your co-operation.

Collecting Children

Everyone collecting children from our school at home time is asked to wait in the yard area – this leaves our hallways and stairways free for the children to move safely. The children will be brought the the yard for collection at their home times.
