Dear Parents/Guardians,

♦ Catholic Schools Week

Thank you to the Grandparents who visited last week – the pupils really enjoyed your visits.

All classes made St. Brigid’s Crosses which we got blessed at mass on St. Brigid’s Day.

♦ Book Fair

Last year we held a Book Fair in conjunction with Khan’s Bookshop in Kilkenny which was very successful.  This year we will have another on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th February.  Many books will be available at just €1.00.  This is a great opportunity for you and your daughter to buy books at great value.

The children will be brought in their classes to look at the books on Thursday.  Parents are welcome to drop in and browse/buy at any time during the 2 days.  The children will have an opportunity to buy books on Friday.

A percentage of the total sales is given as a book voucher to the school.  This means that the more books bought the more books, in turn, will be added to our library for use by the pupils.

♦ Internet Safety Week

This week is Internet Safety Week.  Please talk to your daughter at home re. this very serious topic.  At school the teachers will be covering different aspects of online safety.  Today, Tuesday 7th is Internet Safety Day.

♦ “Wake Up, Shake Up” – we hope that Thursday morning will be dry so that we can continue with our “Wake Up, Shake Up” activity at 9.20a.m.

♦ 10 @ 10

In conjunction with ‘Operation Transformation’ every primary school child is being asked to partake in a mass physical activity break on Friday, 10th February at 10a.m. for 10 minutes.  We will be taking part – all pupils may wear P.E. gear on Friday.

♦ School Fundraiser

We are selling knitted Easter “chicks”,  “eggs in baskets” and “bunnies” at €2 each as a school fundraiser.  These have been kindly knitted by Aliyah Brennan’s (Senior Infants) granny Mary Rooney and mammy Susan Brennan.  A big thank you to both for their hard work.  All money raised will go towards buying extra P.E. resources.
