School Reports 2016-2017

School Reports

This year’s end of year reports can now be accessed through the Aladdin parent portal https://www.aladdin.ie/signin/parent. The parent portal makes it possible for you to look at your child’s report along with the reports from other years. You will also be able to access your child’s attendance records for this year and previous years.

If you would like a hard copy of the report, it can be printed out at home or you can send in a stamped addressed envelope to the school and we will post it out during the summer holidays after the school has closed.

School Books

School books can be bought online using the parent portal or from the office when it reopens in August.

Bon Voyage and Welcome back

We say farewell to Colette Walsh who has worked as an SNA here for the last nine years. Colette has made a great contribution to the school and will be fondly remembered by children, staff and parents. We wish her well in her studies and thank her for all she has done throughout her time here.

Next year Deirdre Kelly and Maeve Collins will taking a career break to teach abroad for the year. We wish them well in their endeavours and know they will return all the better for their experience in a different education system.

Maria Mc Manus will be returning from career break next September. Many of you will remember Maria as a teacher in Senior Infants. It is great to have her back.

School Cookbook

Copies of the cook book are on sale until the end of the year. We are so proud of the book and the money raised from it will be used for ICT equipment, yard markings for the children’s yard and the sixth class graduation project. Many thanks to all the parents who contributed over the year to the many activities and events that took place in the school. It is great to have your support and it means so much to all the staff and myself.

Sixth Class

We say goodbye to both our sixth classes and wish them well in their new schools next year. It has been a pleasure to get to know them and their families and I look forward to hearing great things about them all as they embark on their next stage of life.

Staffing

Below is a list of all the class allocation for next year. The school is currently recruiting new teachers and I will email the classes when these teachers have been appointed in mid-July.
