Hospice & PTA Coffee Morning

Well done to everyone for organising and attending our coffee morning in aid of the wonderful work done in Hospices. Our coffee morning had a dual purpose of fundraising and providing a welcome to parents from the PTA. It was a wonderful opportunity for new and current parents to come together for a chat and is a great start both to our weekend and to our year. €157.70 was raised for a really worthy cause. Well done to volunteers and coffee drinkers alike!

Curriculum Meetings are taking place in the school during the week starting September 19th .

These are adult meetings so, smaller children need to be looked after elsewhere for the duration. The meetings cover general topics so individual questions cannot be answered. Teachers will outline some of the material that will be covered this year and how their class is organised. Parents tell us that they find these meetings very useful. Thank you to the teachers for putting so much into the preparation and presentation of each meeting.

Individual Parent-Guardian/Teacher meetings: Each family will get a formal opportunity to meet with each teacher individually in November to discuss your own child’s progress.

In the meantime, if you have a concern, you are always welcome in North Bay. If it is a small matter, drop in at the end of the day or in the morning; otherwise please make an appointment with your class teacher so that we can arrange supervision and so that the teacher can give you her/his full attention.

A number of our local residents have been in contact with the school about parking again this year. Parent have been seen parking illegally including parking on corners!!! Below are a few reminders of the rules of parking:

Firstly unless parking spaces are clearly marked no vehicle should park within 5 meters of a junction. There are also a number of associated rules some of the more relevant ones are set out below for your information;

• Do not park where there are white or yellow zig-zag lines
• Wholly or partially on a zebra crossing
• 15 meters before or 5 meters after a pedestrian crossing
• Must never park at a corner, bend or brow of a hill
• Do not park anywhere that obstructs view of a school warden or a member of the junior warden service

In all cases drivers must not park in anyway which interferes with the normal flow of traffic, or which obstructs or endangers other road users.

Further information on safe parking and parking restrictions is available from Section 10 of the Rules Of The Road (version 4).
Please be respectful of other road users and remember that our first responsibility is to keep our children safe.
