Book Fair

A BIG Thank you to everyone who supported our Book Fair last week, it was a great success. With the help of the Parents Association we were able to open the book fair for sales on two days. Over €3,000 in book sales were made, 60% of this being returned to the school to purchase books. This will be a wonderful asset to our school and classroom libraries.

Winter Cards

This week in school the children have been working on their winter cards. The template will be brought home for you on Friday or Monday to look at and decide how many packs of cards you might like to purchase. Card templates need to be returned to the school by the 19th October and payment should be made via Aladdin.

1 pack of 12 cards costs €10

Last year the money raised from our winter card fundraiser went towards the purchase of an interactive white-board.

There is, as always, no obligation to purchase but your support will be welcomed.
