Well done! To all the children who made their First Communion last Saturday. A special thank you to the Parents’ Association for hosting the Communion breakfasts and to all the parents who came down to help set up the hall, and to those who helped with serving tea/coffee on Saturday. A special thank you to Karen Coghlan for supplying the lovely pastries on the day, and to Patricia Magill who co-ordinated the support. Your contribution greatly added to the day for all the families involved.

Every year we ask communicants to make a charitable donation, if they wish, to a worthy cause and this year we are supporting Enable Ireland, who currently, and previously, have supported children with physical disability in our school , and are reliant on support from the public.

Found: A child’s scooter was found on the school yard before Easter, please call into the school office to collect it.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Research: A past pupil of St. Thomas’ school , studying for her Masters in Developmental Psychology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, would like parents to take part in a questionnaire, which examines sensory processing and behavioural preferences in parents of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, and parents of children who are typically developing. If you are a biological parent of one or more children between the ages of 4-17 then please take part in this study as your contribution will be valuable towards helping research on autism. This questionnaire will take about 20 minutes to complete and can be filled out both on your smartphone or computer. Follow this link to the survey:
