Trip to the Botanic Gardens

4th class went on a trip to the Botanic Gardens on the Wednesday before the Midterm Break. Our guide gave us a wonderful tour of the grounds and we learned about various plant life, Harvest foods, vegetables and flowers and got to visit the pumpkin exhibition that was on display. A few children in our class had entered the competition and Pippa and Zelda came first in their age category with Cheshire cats from Alice in Wonderland. The other pumpkins on display were fantastic too! Have a look at some of our photos from the day.

Parent-Guardian Teacher meetings 15-16 G K W

Hello Everyone
This year’s individual parent teacher meetings have been scheduled for Wednesday November 25th and Thursday November 26th. These meetings are for all classes from Senior Infants to 6th class. Junior Infant meetings will take place in February when the children have settled into school. Infant children will go home as normal on these days and children from 1st to 6th will go home at 14.05 on both of these days.

These professional meetings are for adults. It is important, therefore that children, especially pre-school children, are taken care of outside of school for the duration.

You will receive a time allocation of 10 minutes. Please try to be  on time and to schedule a future meeting if more time is needed to discuss specific concerns. As always, we are happy to meet with and involve parents in the life of our school. If, throughout the year, you need to pass on information about a small matter, you are welcome to mention it from 08.40-08.50 in the morning or directly after school on collection. If you need to schedule a longer meeting please talk to Judy and she will help you arrange it.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you.
Sally
