Best of luck to our 2nd Class girls who will make their First Penance tomorrow at 12pm in OLV Church. We are all very proud of them!
We have two football teams entered into the Fingal League this year and can’t wait to cheer them on over the coming weeks! Many thanks to Ms Cassidy for taking over from Ms Ferriter in her absence. A huge thanks also goes to Ms Hickey from the Boys’ School, who has allowed Mr D. Murtagh coach one of the teams and Ms Bradley to assist with the other.
TO CELEBRATE ST. PATRICK’S DAY, WE WILL BE HAVING OUR ANNUAL CÉILÍ IN THE SCHOOL HALL ON FRIDAY 15TH MARCH.
Due to health and safety concerns we will have two céilí sessions this year.
9.30am classes: Ms O Dea, Ms Farrell-McCabe, Ms Behan, Ms Farrell
11.30am classes: Ms Haughton, Ms Cassidy, Ms Bourke, Ms Ferriter, Ms Smith
We anticipate the Céilí will last no more than an hour. If you have children in both Céilí you are more than welcome to wait in the Parents’ Room between each Céilí. No parent may wait in the hall as the Infant School will be using it at 10.30am. Under no circumstances will a child be allowed to be collected after their Céilí- it is a normal school day otherwise. Our newly formed ‘Mad for Trad’ band will perform at both Céilí. The girls are invited to wear green, white and orange on the day!
We are looking forward to the day and the children have been practising their DANCING AND SINGING. Unfortunately, there is no room for buggies due to the limited space, parents are asked to leave buggies at home. There will be an entry charge of €2 per person- this will go towards fundraising for costumes and part payment of the IXL membership.
Have your party piece ready, you may be called upon!
