Dear Parents/Guardians

Trocaire Boxes: Please return Trocaire Boxes by tomorrow Friday 17th May.

Thank you to all parents who have already sent in their boxes.

Science Day – First Classes: This took place on Monday the 13th of May and was organised by one of our parents Erica Hendrick (Alex – R.15) through sponsorship of Merck. All our first class pupils were suited up in white as young scientists and got a chance to conduct 4 simple science experiments in the hall on the day. Erica was assisted by another parent Lydia Lynch (Layla – R.20), Professor and Lead Scientist at Trinity College Dublin, and members of our parents’ Association, thank you.

Also please let us know if you have changed address recently as we will be sending home school reports and book lists in the coming weeks. School fees payable by 21st of June.

As this is a busy term with testing, tours, sports day and school reports please inform your child’s teacher in advance if your child is going to be absent for any particular day/week.

If you can help out please give your name to Maureen at the school office or contact the PA directly. It will also give you a good insight into the ceremony for next year! Thanks to the parents who have already volunteered to help out.
