I've sent the test copies home today, can you please sign them and send them back in tomorrow. I still have to collect swimming notes off a few children so if you can send them in it'd be great.

Hi everyone,

The times for the P/T were supposed to go home today but other teachers came to me at the end of the day wanting to change the times of some siblings. We have it sorted now so they'll go home in the their school bags tomorrow. I will have two early morning slots (8.00-815 and 8.15-8.30) available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for those of you who cannot see me after school. Just send me an email or write on the letter the time that suits best.

Thanks,
Colum

Hi everyone,

First of all I'd like to congratulate Lochlan, August, Vedh and Narottam who came in 2nd place at the All Ireland Mini Scientist competition on Friday. This is a fantastic achievement as there were 5000 entries in the competition. This is a massive achievement for the boys and they were presented their award by The Minister of Education Richard Bruton. The photo is in the front hall of the school if you'd like to have a look.

I'll be sending home the timetable for the parent/teacher meetings tomorrow. Please let me know ASAP if the time does not suit and I'll do my very best to accommodate everybo.

Chat soon,

Hi everyone,

Here are the spellings for the coming week.
Antibiotic, antifreeze, antidote, antiseptic, antihero, antisocial, anticlimax, anticlockwise, anterior, imaginary, entrance, punishment, comhrá, cogadh and síocháin.

This week we are learning all about WW1, so if any of you have some interesting artifacts at home we'd love to see them.

I'm just after realising that I've sent the children home without their homework copies. They can just do their homework on a page and we'll transfer them into their copies tomorrow.

Hi everyone,

I like to congratulate Vedh, August, Lochlan and Narottam on getting through to the finals of the Mini Scientist competition. Their traffic light project really impressed the judges and we're looking forward to the finals in February.

The children's Christmas play (Tír na nóg) will take place tomorrow morning at 9.00am. There will be tea/coffee available from 8.40 for those who wish to have a chat beforehand.

Chat soon,
