Grandparents Day (2nd Classes): Well done to the huge number of grandparents who turned up today Thursday for our Annual Grandparents Day. ! Their wisdom and experience was shared among all our 2nd classes who were fascinated by tales of school long ago and in turn were able to show what 2nd class learning is like in 2019.

A big thank you to the staff of the school and members of our Parents Association who helped out on the day, serving tea and cleaning up afterwards. Also thank you to Karen Coghlan for supplying all the lovely buns.

Reminder Second Class Parents: There is an important meeting in St. Patrick’s Church Esker tonightThursday 3rdOctober at 7pm for parents of children receiving the Sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion.

The evening talk will focus on bullying cycles, how to recognise if your child is using bullying behaviours and what to do if you feel your child is being bullied.
