Hello everyone,


The Department of Education is looking for every child’s PPS number for their data base. Could you all email me with your chiild’s PPSN someday this week? Available from the Department of Social Welfare if you don’t have it.


Don’t forget the Table Quiz is on this Friday evening in McGowan’s, Harold’s X. It’s always great fun – whether you like quizzes or not! If you can’t get a team together just come along and you will be paired up. We need to fund-raise as much as possible for ICT equipment…Stephanie’s projectore had to be replaced recently at considerable cost, and we are looking into purchasing a class set of tablets also.


One of our pupils, Adam Jordan, is trying to fund-raise for a Seal Sanctuary as part of a Cub Scout Award. He’s organising a “coffee afternoon” and bake-sale in the Transept of St Catherine’s Church next Monday afternoon. It will take place from 1:20 pm onwards so you can grab a cup of coffee and some goodies either after you collect at 1:20 pm or before you collect at 2:20 pm…he’s got you either way! All in a good cause.3


Everyone should be practising their orchestra instrument especially hard this week and next. We have a lovely concert prepared for Friday 26th (6 pm in the church) and 3rd and 4th also have an exam on Thursday 25th (during the school day for the most part). So get those fingers moving!


Kind Regards,
