Dear Parent / Guardian, Colleague & Board Member,   

Covid 19 Update – The attendance rate this week has been 86% and while we know of some children who are restricting their movements as close contacts we also have been notified of 10 active cases which equates to 5% of the school going population.

Dream for Danny – Congratulations to our own pupil Mia Tulk Williams and Clonmel resident Tanya Kennedy who were winners in the recent online draw organised by Ms Dunlea & Danny’s classmates. A total of €4,356 was raised. Rg 5 made it into the Nationalist this week in assembling treat packs along with their teacher for the Late Late Toy Show back in November.

Vision & Hearing Screening – Testing for Junior Infant pupils will take place on Wednesday and Thursday next at the school. A consent form has been sent home with pupils yesterday and we would appreciate forms signed and returned from Monday. If you have any concerns please contact the school at 052 6136349.

Church Art – As part of Catholic Schools Week, Fr. Toomey asked the children from Rg 5 & Rg 6 to design a poster for St. Laurence’s Church Fourmilewater. The winners were announced today and in first place was Mia McCarthy Rg 6 with Rocco Cuddy Rg 6 and Jack Norris Rg 5 both runners up. Well done to the winners, entrants and indeed Fr. Toomey.

Mid Term Break Reminder – The school will close on Thursday 24th & Friday 25th February for MTB.

Is mise,

Michael J. O’ Ryan.
