Dear Parents and Guardians,
Developing School Status
We have maintained our projected student enrolment numbers of 122. This means that our 5th classroom teacher post is now permanent and that I will become an Administrative Principal. This means an additional teacher will be appointed to replace me. We see this as a very positive development for the school going forward, especially considering our increased number of classes and the ongoing building project.
Sciath na Scol
Enormous credit is due to our Sciath na Scol footballers after their tremendous display last Tuesday. We won two games and lost two games. A special mention to Alex Neilon, who broke his wrist while representing the school, we wish him a speedy recovery. Our next game will be on Tuesday 9th of October v Ringaskiddy and Ballyvongane in Vicarstown NS.
We will have a Mini 7’s football blitz next Friday 12th of October in Clondrohid. Selected team members (only 10 aside) will need to get permission slips signed and pay €5 towards the bus please. As a result there will be no Rugby on Friday 12th, it will be rescheduled for the following week.
Morning club operates Monday to Friday 8 – 8.40am (no prior notice required) and Homework Club operates Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 2.30 to 3.35pm.
Goal Jersey Day - 12th of October
Could everyone wear a sports jersey (i.e. Inniscarra GAA, Cork) next Friday 12th of October and give you child a small donation in aid of Goal Charity.
Collection from School
Please let the school know beforehand if your child is going home with another child from their class, or if they are being collected by somebody outside the norm.
School Garden – Tasting produce
The garlic and potatoes were a real hit with the junior classes here last Friday, it was like a scene from Oliver as many children came back to the pot for more. Some came back three times! A special thank you to Catherine Fairtlough for organising the harvest and the cooking!
