20th December 2019
Some of the most important events in our school calendar took place over the past week.
School Fair and Raffle
The School Fair and Raffle took place on Friday 13th December. Our Parents’ Association have been planning both events since September. More parents and friends than ever before attended the Fair and got a chance to meet others and to support the school. There was a great atmosphere and everyone, children and adults, enjoyed the day.
There were many excellent prizes to be won in the raffle with the top prize being a night away in the Seafield Hotel.
We are very thankful to all the local businesses and parents who donated prizes to be won.
We are extremely grateful to the Parents’ Association for all the hard work that they put in to make the Fair and Raffle such a success.
Our Junior Carol Service and Senior Carol Service took place on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th December.
Singing was excellent on both days and the hall was packed to capacity
The teachers and pupils were preparing to sing for a number of weeks beforehand and it was delightful to hear such good singing.
Ms. Odharnait Healy and Ms. Sara O’Donnell accompanied the children on the violin and keyboard, and Ms. Hannah Byrne acted as choreographer for both events.
Great credit is due to all the school staff, all of whom helped to make both carol services a huge success.
We are very grateful to Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D., Minister of State for Higher Education and to Cormac Devlin, Councillor for Dun Laoghaire, for taking time out of their busy schedules to visit our school fair.
Room on the Broom
Junior pupils went to the event “Room on the Broom” in the Pavilion Theatre on Wednesday 18th December. A great day was had by all. We hope to make this an annual event.
None of the aforementioned events would have been nearly as successful without the hard work, co-operation and commitment of the following: school staff, parents, grandparents, friends, Parents’ Assocation and especially the pupils of the school. A special thanks is due to Des Duffy for all his hard work with the Christmas lights.
I would like to wish everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
