Dear Parent

Please note the following,

The Ceremony of Light will take place in the Chapel today, Tuesday 29th January at 7pm. This is for the Confirmandi and their parents.

We are currently accepting Enrolment Applications for pupils for the 2019-20 school year. An Enrolment Day will be held in the school on Thursday, 31st January from 9.30 until 3pm (Birth Certs and PPSN are required upon enrolment).

We are scheduled to attend a School Mass in the Chapel at 10am on St Bridget’s Day, Friday, 1st February. All parents/grandparents/ wider community are invited to the School Hall afterwards for a cup of tea and to assist in St Bridget Cross-making.

The Credit Union Quiz is scheduled for Monday, 4th February in the Mount Errigal hotel. All participants are to be seated by 7.40pm. The pupils wear school uniforms to the event.

Confirmation of our Sixth Class pupils is scheduled for Sunday, 10th February at 12.30pm. The pupils wear school uniforms on the day.

The school will be closed on Thursday, February 21st and Friday, 22nd February (Mid-term holidays).

We thank you for your recent support of the Alice in Wonderland pantomime. The event was a sell-out and we enjoyed it greatly. Oh, yes we did. Oh no, we …..!

The BOM will conduct its Annual Child Protection Review (Safety Statement and Risk Assessment) at its meeting on Tuesday, 5th February.  All parents should have received a copy earlier this school year and it is also available on request from the School Office or on the School Website. Please contact us if you require a further/ replacement copy.

Finally, to conclude with some old chestnuts; with dark, cold and wet mornings a feature of Winter, I wish to re-iterate that children should not be left unsupervised outside the school gates before our morning opening time of 9.10pm , and I request that no cars use the staff/bus car-park in the mornings and at 2 and 3pm pick-up times.

Yours sincerely,

John Devenney.
