A Message from the Parents’ Association
SPONSORED WALK – Friday 28th September, 2018
Dear Parents, Welcome back to school and I hope you all had a lovely summer. As you will have all seen there was amazing work done on the school yard over the summer holidays, which all our children will benefit from. The PA together with Ms Costello and all the staff are organising a sponsored walk for the children on Friday 28th September. This is a fundraiser for the school so we will be sending a sponsorship card home with each child next week, together with a copy of the route. The children can wear their tracksuits on the day.
We will be looking for volunteers to help on the day at various points of the walk. If you are available to help can I please ask you to email stbrigidsparentsassociation at our gmail account or contact your class rep. With your help, we hope the children and staff will enjoy a fun walk and we thank you for your support and involvement.
The SCHOOL YARD has been extended. As a result, the children will enjoy a full 30 minutes of play time instead of the 15 minutes they have had to date. Access to the school from 30th August 2018 will only be via the Trafalgar Road entrance at the pedestrian crossing and the Kimberley Road, back lane entrance at the barrier. This is in the interests of HEALTH & SAFETY. Both these entrances are equipped with safety barriers.
There is a NEW KITCHEN in the relocated staff room. We hope the boys and girls will have the opportunity to perfect their culinary skills and who knows we might produce the next Jamie Oliver!
Thursday 13 September with be Junior Infants’ 1st FULL DAY beginning at 9am and finishing at 1.40 pm. The 13th September will be Independence Day for Junior Infants!
