Dear Parents/Guardians,

♦ Lent starts on Wednesday next, March 1st.  1st – 5th class will attend mass on Wednesday (Ash Wednesday).  As is usual during Lent we will again be urging the pupils to donate a small amount of their own money to the Trócaire and Bóthar Lenten Campaign.  Each teacher will be explaining about this in more detail to each class.

♦ We have been informed of outbreaks of head lice in some classes.  I remind you – pupils must wear their hair up/back at all times.  Please check your child’s hair.  If infected, please treat immediately.  Only parents can eradicate this problem.

♦ Our Bookfair was very successful.  The children got great value in the books they bought.  The total amount collected was €1616.  The school can now buy books to the value of 25% of this – €404.  This will be used to supplement the books available in each room.  Many thanks to all who bought books.

♦ Health Promoting Schools Poster Competition

Congratulations to all the winners in this competition.  There was a very high standard overall.  The winning entries can be seen on the school website  Please visit the website to see more activities taking place in each class.

♦ Please Note: Our Healthy Lunch Policy does not allow biscuits,

bars or other such snacks.  On a Friday a piece of home baking is
