Survey on Sacraments
We have been asked by the Archdiocese of Dublin to share the following link with you. They are currently conducting a survey on the preparation of students for sacraments and would like feedback from as many different parents as possible. Please take a few minutes to follow the link to their web page and contribute your opinion to this important issue.
World Book Day – 7th March 2019
This year World Book Day will take place on March 7th. As in previous years, we will be holding a ‘dress-up’ day in an effort to celebrate the event. Children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite book character on the day. There are so many different characters to choose from the dressing up possibilities are endless. Children are encouraged to make and design their own costumes as opposed to wearing shop bought ones. As a Green-School it would be fantastic to see people being as creative as possible and incorporate reused/recycled materials into their costumes. Get thinking and get reading! We look forward to seeing your child dressed up for the special day on March 7th.
SAFER INTERNET DAY
We will be celebrating Safer Internet Day on February 5th. Our parents’ internet safety page here has lots of resources for Parents about the use of smart technologies with children.
New Policy Updates
The January Agreed Report for the Board of Management is available here.
Parents can find the updated Internet Acceptable Use Policy and the new Restraint Policy on the School Policies Page here.
In line with departmental regulations, a full review of our Child Safeguarding Policy was undertaken at the November Board of Management meeting.
