Last year as part of our Digital School’s Programme we developed class blogs. These open a window into individual classes in our school and can be found on the homepage of our website. To date we have five class blogs with more to follow. We hope you enjoy your journey through our school.
We had a lovely end to a very busy week on Friday with the return of Mayo Star Tom Parsons to our school. Tom’s first port of call was Mr. Clarke’s Rang 5/6 and Ms. Henry’s Rang 4/5 as part of the Gaelic Players association Réalta Programme. Tom then joined the whole school at our weekly assembly and visited all our Junior Classes.
Tom is a wonderful role model and imparted great advice to all the children. He spoke fondly of his memories of St.Attracta’s and gave fantastic examples/life lessons of challenges he faced at an early age. Tom stressed the importance of believing in oneself and continuing to work hard to achieve your goals.
It was a pleasure to welcome Tom back to us again. Young and old enjoyed his visit.We thank Tom sincerely for his visit and in particular his time and interest in meeting all our students. Míle buíochas Tom.
Finally we felt after the very busy week we had with our Whole School Evaluation it would be unfair to chose any students as ‘Students of the Week’. A huge thank to all our students for their hard work, effort and focus throughout. We sincerely appreciated this great team effort. Maith sibh go léir!
Our Parents Association have decided to try and help the school cover some of the cost of the groundworks in the school that benefit every child and as such are focusing their fundraising activities for the school year 2016/17 towards this.
There are two fundraising activities currently scheduled:
A Table Quiz will take place on Friday the 25th of November at 8.30pm in Walsh’s Pub. It is hoped that everyone will come out and support our school on what promises to be a fun night with great prizes.
A Clothing Collection will take place on the 2nd of December and people can drop in bags and anytime from Monday the 28th of November.
The next P.A. meeting is scheduled for Tuesday the 22nd at 8pm. This is to be a brief half hour meeting in advance of the Table Quiz to allow us to get organised.
The Parents Association always welcome all parents to join the Meetings and get involved in any of the fundraising activities.
As always we thank our Parent Association and indeed all our parents for their hard work and continuous support of our school.
