Best wishes to our past pupil Dean O’Connor and the New York ladies team as they face Wexford in the TG4 All-Ireland Ladies Junior Football Championship Final this coming Sunday September 28th in Croke Park.
Dean is part of the New York management team and will have great support from his family and the wider Charlestown community in Dublin. Dean was a student here with us from 1980 to 1989, before moving to New York in 1999.
We wish Dean well and hope his nieces, nephews and all his supporters have an enjoyable day on Sunday. Best wishes also to the Charlestown u-12,u-13 and u-14 Girls teams who are travelling to the games on Sunday and will no doubt be shouting for New York with their strong Charlestown connections.
A warm welcome back to all parents/guardians and pupils to the St Attracta’s for the new academic year 2014 – 2015.
We have had a great first week, and are very happy with how all our students have come back to school,starting as they mean to go on!
Our new Junior Infant class in particular has settled very well into the routines of school life, working hard for their teacher and making new friends. A special welcome also to new students who have joined us throughout the school. Again, we’re delighted with how well you’ve integrated into our classes/school and are delighted with your progress.
We hope all our new children and their families will be very happy here with us and have a long association with our school.
Reminder our Junior Infants will continue to finish at 12 Noon each day this week, however as and from Monday next September 15th the children will finish at the normal time of 2.05 p.m.
Building Update All our Parents/Guardians should by now have an update of where we are at with our building works from the letter sent home to each family on Friday last. We expect that there will be great progress this coming week and hope that the main works will be finished inside the next fortnight.
