Gabhaim buíochas libh as ucht bhur dtacaíochta le linn an téarma. Thank you all for your wonderful support and contribution to the school over the first term.
Éachtaí speisialta: We are so proud of all the achievements of our pupils in school related and extra-curricular events this past few months. Most notably is the fantastic achievement of Senan Mac Domhnaill of Rang a ceathair who qualified for the Connacht schools athletics final and Sean Doggett. Seán went on to represent the school at the All-Ireland championships and represented the school excellently. It is wonderful to see the children coming in on a weekly basis with their various trophies and medals and we love to celebrate their achievements. Please continue to inform the school of the children’s achievements outside of school hours.
Suirbhé ceoil: Thank you all for completing the music information sheet recently. We are now more informed and in a better position to reestablish a Junior and a senior school choir and music group. It is so lovely to see our children participating in the Athenry Music School events. We are delighted that Méabh Mc Kenna (harp teacher) will be offering harp introduction classes in January. I will issue a registration sheet for this in the New year. We have five harps that can be loaned to prospective beginners.
Coiste na dTuistí: We are so delighted that our parents association continue to support the school and we constantly encourage new members to get involved. The last man standing raised 2,300 and Samantha Foran’s flower demonstration raised 1,098 for the school. We hope to have a winner of our last man standing in the near future.
