1. Farewell to Marine House

We don’t have a definite date for our move to the new school, but we are going to make a start on plans for the Farewell to Marine House event coupled with Brendan’s retirement. The provisional date for this is Friday 27th of May, from 1pm to 4pm.

We would like to get as many people as possible to attend on the day, including current and past students and their families. Children from all classes will perform and there will be refreshments served.

We would welcome any photos or other memories to add to our Marine House display.

Parents will be contacted by class reps ahead of this with details of donations requested to help fund this event.

2. Open evening for new Junior Infants parents

The open evening will be held on Tuesday 12th of April at 8pm for parents of next year’s Junior Infants. Lisa Jervis has volunteered to help with serving tea and coffee on the night.

3. International Food Day

International Food Day has been postponed until October.

4. My Marine House Commemorative Postcard Project

The closing date for entry is Friday 29th April. Everyone who submits an entry will receive a proof in postcard form (much like the process for the Christmas cards), and will be given the option to purchase a pack of postcards. All entries will form a collage which will be displayed as part of our Farewell To Marine House celebrations.
