Week Ending 8th April 2011
Easter Holidays
Please note that the children will finish at 11.30am on Friday 15 April. 
The school will be closed from Monday 18 April to Monday 02 May inclusive (May Bank Holiday) and will reopen on Tuesday 03 May at 08.30am.

Mobile Phones
Unless it is absolutely necessary, children should not bring mobile phones to school.  For those who need to bring a phone, it must be turned off and left in the child’s school bag.  If the phone is seen or heard anywhere on school grounds, it will be taken off the child and parents will have to collect the phone from the school office.

Contact Details
It is essential that we have the correct address and contact details (e.g. home telephone, parents’ mobile numbers) for your child on our database in order for you to receive text messages, your child/children’s school reports, end of year letters, etc or to make contact with you if your child should fall ill during the school day. If any of your details have changed since the beginning of the school year, please complete a Change of Address/Contact Details Form, available from the office.

Sport for All Day (3rd to 6th Class)
This will take place on Wednesday 13 April.  Children should wear their school tracksuit, suitable footwear and if possible, a light rain jacket too.  They should also bring an extra drink with them along with their usual lunch. Here’s hoping for a fun day for all!

4th Parents Holy Communion Meeting
The next Parents Preparation Meeting for First Holy Communion will take place in St Mochta’s Parish Centre on Thursday 14th March 2011 at 8pm.  The meeting will give an overview of the Communion Ceremony. At least one parent should attend this meeting. If you cannot attend please contact the Parish office at (01) 8213218.

“Jedward” and Jack & Jill Mobile Phone Collection!!
Our school is continuing to collect mobile phones in any condition. As well as helping the environment, the collected phones can be used by the school to get useful IT equipment. “Jedward” have recently teamed up with Jack & Jill and will visit the school which collects the most mobile phones.

Lost Property
Any property not claimed from the Lost Property press by Friday 15 April will be donated to St Vincent de Paul.  If your child is missing any items, please take a look in the Lost Property press, inside the Blanchardstown door, at pick-up time.

Labelling/Lost Property
With the warmer weather hopefully on the way, children are starting to remove their jumpers, cardigans and tracksuit tops while in the yard.  We therefore ask that all items are clearly labelled with your child’s name as this will increase their chances of getting the item back.
