Art/Photocopying: If you have already sent in the €40 for classroom resources thank you very much. This money is used by teacher to buy art materials primarily but also for stationery, photocopying, markers etc. which are needed in the classroom. The money collected is spent by the teachers for the benefit of all the children in their class irrespective of who has paid. If you haven’t sent it in to teacher I would encourage you to contribute whatever you can afford. There is a discount of €5 per child in families of two or more children. Thank you for your co-operation.

Stay Safe: The Stay Safe programme is being taught in all classes from Senior Infants up starting next week. The aim of the Stay Safe Programme is to reduce vulnerability to child abuse and bullying. The programme develops children’s ability to recognise, resist and report risk situations or abusive encounters. There is detailed information on the Stay Safe Programme and also valuable advice on safe use of the internet at www.staysafe.ie . A limited no. of the Parents’ Guide booklets are available from the office.
