Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Parents Association Subs

Our Parents Association rely on support from our parent body. Each year the PA collect subscriptions of €10 per family in order to support the purchase of resources for our pupils or to support fun events within the school. Subs can now be paid online via Aladdin. Your support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all who have already contributed. Please also keep a close eye on the St. Thomas’ PA Facebook page which keeps you up to date on upcoming events.

Hot School Meals

After Easter, it is expected that each child in the school will receive a hot school meal daily. This is funding by the Government to the cost of €3.20 per child, per day. The practicalities of it and operation of it has yet to be finalised. This will mean that the Lunchbag service which we currently have will cease operation. Details will be made known once finalised.

Foster Carers

The Fostering Team in Dublin South Central, TUSLA, are recruiting Foster Carers as a matter of urgency. Due to limited number of foster carers in the area, children are being placed in homes outside of Dublin, far away from their families, communities and schools. TUSLA aims to keep children to remain living within their community close to their support systems. If you are interested in becoming a foster carer or wish to learn more, please contact nicole.wynne@tusla.ie or ciara.rowan3@tusla.ie.
