The Class Coffee mornings started this Tuesday with Canada and India. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents who attended and I hope everyone enjoyed meeting other parents and catching up on upcoming events in the school. It is vital for us as the Parent Teacher Committee to have regular feedback and interaction with all parents in the school and it was lovely to get to know some more people.
These coffee mornings will be held through the month of March and invitations for each class will be handed out a week in advance. I hope the attendance level of parents will continue throughout the month and I look forward to meeting you all.
We are currently looking to expand our committee from our current 6 members. So far we have three new members. These are:
- Sinead Reilly, (Calum Reilly’s Mum in India Class),
- Mykhaylo Fedenyshyn (Elizabeth’s Dad in India Class) and
- Moxamed Sheekh (Dad to Sophie in Egypt Class and Haniya in India Class)
We also need a new secretary and would ask anyone interested to contact myself or leave their details with Lesley in the office. This is a vital and most important job within the committee.
Women’s Mini Marathon
Next Wednesday 29th February (in school hall at 9am) will be our registration day for The Flora Women’s Mini Marathon which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday June 4th. There is an entrance fee of €12. The actual fee is €18 but Eddie has kindly said the school will pay some of the cost towards the entry fee. We would love as many mums, aunts, nannies, sisters etc to get involved and help raise much needed funds while having fun and meet new people in the process. We will be printing up sponsorship cards andt-shirts thanks to Darren(Samira’s Dad in Brazil Class). I hope to get a big group and to see lots of you ready to sign up this Wednesday.

You will receive your registration number and record book once we receive your form back. The first payment day will be held in the school hall on Wednesday the 7th Of March from 9am.
