Thursday Letter 24.03.22

Dear Parents,

Removal of Covid-19 interventions on Tuesday 22nd March

I would like to thank you all for your co-operation and support on Tuesday when we removed many of our Covid-19 interventions. There has been a great buzz around the school as we return to some kind of normality. Class levels had an opportunity to mix with each other on the school yard for the first time in two years. However, we are very conscious of the fact that the number of positive Covid cases is still high and we must continue to be vigilant. Please ensure that boys santitize before coming to school in the morning and please take the necessary precautions if your son has any Covid-19 symptoms.

First Confession – Wednesday 30th March 2022 in St. Mary’s Church at 7pm

Best of luck to our second class boys who make their First Confession on Wednesday 30th March 2022 in St. Mary’s Church at 7pm. Ms. Walsh and Ms. Staunton will be in contact with more information for parents of boys in second class.

Sports Day – Sunday 15th May at 2pm in St. Mary’s BNS

I am happy to report that our Sports Day will take place for the first time in over two years. The provisional date for Sports Day is Sunday 15th May at 2pm on our school grounds. Please email the school if you would like to volunteer on the day. The Parents’ Association depend on volunteers in order to run the event.

We are very grateful to Paul Concannon from Flowtech Engineering for donating €1500 towards our new sports hall. This brings the total figure to €10,551.

Fundraiser for Red Cross – Non-Uniform Day on Friday 8th April

The Red Cross is an international organisation that helps to alleviate human suffering wherever it may be found. As you know, the people in Ukraine are suffering at the moment. There are also humanitarian issues in Palestine, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan. There will be a non-uniform day on Friday 8th April and we encourage boys to donate €2 to the Red Cross.

Gaelic Football

Well done to the senior A footballers who had a great win over Bishop Galvin NS from Templeogue. We are very grateful to Mr. Shanahan and Mr. Reynolds for all their time and effort preparing the boys for competition.
