Dear Parents/Guardians, 25th November 2016
Important Information Re-disabled Car Park Spaces (Blue Spaces)
There are 2 special classes in our school for children with a diagnosis of autism. There are 12 children attending our special classes and they are aged 3-12 years. These children have specific recommendations based on their needs, some of which is about transport and mobility. The part of the building that they are in is where the buses set down every morning and afternoon, at the far end from the reception office.
The parents of these children have explicit permission to park in the blue spaces provided to the front of the school and now have special permits displayed on their front windscreens.
Please do not double park in this area and can I ask that fellow parents respect the rights of those with parking permits to have priority vehicular access to the school.
Kind regards, Sinéad, Principal [email protected]

WETNS NA NOLLAIG CHRISTMAS FAIR 2016 – SUN 11th DEC from 12-5 pm. The WETNS na Nollaig Christmas Fair will take place in the school hall on Sunday, 11th December from 12 – 5 pm. Spaces still available for craft and food stalls or if you run a children’s craft activity. You can share a stall with another parent if you wish, i.e. one table space, or if you have an enterprising child/TY student who would like to take a stall. Booking forms can be obtained from the school office or email [email protected]. And very important, save the date in your diaries as we would like to see as many visitors as possible on the day itself.
Raffle prizes are actively being sought. If you can donate a small gift item or service please leave details with the school office for attention of Maeve Majewski or email [email protected].
A SMALL COMMITTEE OF HELPERS (4 or 5 people) REQUIRED TO HELP ORGANISE THE FAIR. There is likely to be a lot of interest from the townspeople as this is our first Fair in our new building. If you can help out either in advance or on the day or as a co-ordinator please contact Yvonne 089 418 5867 or email [email protected].
