Fun Day Monday

As you are aware, on Monday 14th May we plan to have a Fun Day Monday, raising funds to purchase IT equipment. This will be a non-uniform day and children should come to school dressed in crazy fun clothes. We will be videoing our flash mob routine so parents and friends will get a chance to see it. Keep an eye on our Facebook page after the event. We would like to thank you for all your support and fundraising you have already done and sent into school. We would also like to thank our PTA for providing refreshments for the children. A special thank you goes to Kathryn Annett from KD Dance Academy and Spar, Greencastle Street for all their help in this event.

Parent Interviews
If you need to speak to your child’s class teacher on any issue please contact the
General Office to make an appointment.

Car Park Safety/Keeping Our Children Safe
Once again we would like to remind everyone to drive safely through the school car park! When picking children up please park in appropriate spaces and leave a clearance for traffic to keep flowing carefully! Do not park on the zebra crossings and be cautious of children using them! When parking on the Harbour Road, please leave spaces clear for children to cross with care with the Patrol Officer.

Allergy Advice
A reminder to advise you that we have children in school who suffer from a severe allergy to nuts. Children with this condition may have a severe reaction, which could prove fatal if they come into contact with nuts. Consequently, I would ask that no nuts or related products (e.g. kinder bueno, nutella spreads, peanut butter etc.) are brought into school for your child’s break or packed lunch. Your agreement with this and compliance could prevent a life threatening situation developing. I am sure you will appreciate the reasons for making this request and trust that you will give it your full co-operation.
