November Newsletter

Parent/Teacher Meetings
Parent teacher meetings were held last Friday.  I would like to remind parents who could not attend to schedule a convenient appointment with the class teacher.

Congratulations
Congratulations to our 5th & 6th class team who won their division in the Credit Union Quiz.  Well done to Ellen Gillanders, Hollie Finnegan, Mark Tynan & Aaron Brady.  They will go forward to represent their school in the next round.

Board of Management
At a recent Board of Management meeting, the Board voted to approve the ‘Buddy Bench’ at a reduced cost of €3,700.

Trips
5th & 6th Class will visit Oldcastle Library on Dec 4th for a creative writing workshop, (the library are covering the cost of the bus), where they will meet author Shane Hegarty.

Visitors
The Catechist Maureen Fanning will visit all classes this Friday 30th November.

The HSE nurses are calling on Tuesday 4th December to immunise the junior infants against mumps as there has been an outbreak in Kells.

Carol Service
A short carol service will be held in Ballinlough Church on Monday 17th December, at 7.00pm.

Drop & Go
We understand the frustration with the traffic in the afternoon, but would ask everyone to make an effort to follow the Drop & Go system both in the morning & afternoon.  Please ensure that your child goes promptly to your car without delay and move on.  Children from the older classes could be picked up at 3.10 just to stagger the time or use the shop car park & walk to the school using the footpath (weather permitting).  If we work together & follow the system, the traffic should flow more freely.

School Holidays
School finishes at 12.00 on Friday 21st December for the Christmas Holidays & re-opens on Monday 7th January 2019.
