Dear Parents,

Welcome back to a new term in St Catherine’s!


A special welcome to our two new pupils, Dexter Darcy in 2nd Class and Devlin Murphy in 3rd Class. We wish all the best to Victor Pires from 5th Class and Oskar O’Boyle from Junior Infants who have left us for “pastures new”.

Lots of exciting things happening this term – we’re kicking off today with an Abbey Theatre performance of “Mollser” in the school hall for 5th and 6th Classes – thanks so much to Sarah Fitzgibbon and her team for the enrichment of our drama curriculum!

The staff meeting scheduled for next Wednesday has been postponed till the following Wednesday. So school will close early at 1:20 pm for all classes on Wednesday January 20th, not January 13th. Please put this in your diary and let creches, minders etc know!

Well done to all the children for their lovely singing, playing, acting and reciting at the school carol service on December 22nd. And thank you for your magnificent support!

We are now starting the process of enrolment for next August / September. If your child has a younger sibling due to start this year (remember s/he must be four on or before the 1st of May), and you have not filled out any form, please let us know. Your older child should bring home an enrolment application form tomorrow – if s/he doesn’t, it could be because you have already filled out the full form – you are welcome to ring our secretary, Anne, in the office tomorrow and check.

The forms will need to be back to the school by Friday, January 22nd. 


Kind Regards,
