We are looking forward to some Christmas celebrations over the next few weeks. A BIG thank you to all our parents/guardians who have been busy decorating our school all this week. Our window display in the Parents Room is very special and our Christmas tree is looking fantastic in the reception area.
Thursday 8th December: We will turn on our Christmas lights in the school yard on Dec 8th at 4:30pm. We hope you and your families can join us with the children. Our 5th and 6th class choir will treat us to some carols also.
Monday 19th December: Early Start will have their Christmas concert at 11am on Monday 19th December - both the morning and afternoon group will perform together for their families. Early Start will have a normal school day on Tuesday 20th and due to our half day on Wednesday 21st, both the morning and afternoon group are invited to come to school together from 9am - 11:30am. Fionuala will send a note to all parents explaining this further over the coming days.
Tuesday 20th December: Christmas Concerts! This year our Christmas concerts will take place on Tuesday 20th December. We will have 3 concerts this year. The children are busy preparing with their teachers and they cannot wait to share their talents with you!
Junior Infants and Senior Infants 9:30am - 10:30am (approx).
1st, 2nd and 3rd Class 11:00am - 12:15pm (approx).
4th, 5th and 6th Class 1:10pm - 2:20pm (approx)
Please arrive just 10minutes ahead of the performances. We are asking for a small contribution of €2 at the door, half of these proceeds will be donated to charity. Please stay for the duration of the concert you are attending. The children have worked really hard and it is very distracting if people are moving around in between. You will be allowed to take your own child home with you (if you so wish) once their full concert is over.
Christmas Holidays: Wednesday 21st at 12pm for the whole school! We look forward to welcoming the children back on Thursday 5th January.
In addition to the above, any day now we are expecting a very special guest to the school during the school day! If we're lucky, he may have a little treat for all the boys and girls also!
