Sick Children in School
We would ask that you do not send sick children to school for the following reasons:

  • Children are unable to cope with the demands of school when they are unwell.
  • Infection spreads rapidly in the confinement of the classroom.
  • There is no indoor supervision for sick children during breaktimes.

As there are now approx 770 children in the school, the volume of payments has greatly increased. We therefore request that, if you are sending payments into the school for any reason e.g. Extras Fees, Photographs, Tours, Extra Curricular Activities, Christmas Annuals, etc, etc, that you please write your Child/Children’s Name(s), the reason for payment and their Class Teacher(s) on each envelope

Dropping in lunches, bags, homework etc.
It would be greatly appreciated that if you are dropping in any of your child’s forgotten belongings e.g. lunches, bags, homework, etc., that they are clearly marked with your child’s name and their class teacher

School Dental Service for 6th Class
All children in 6th Class were given a form for HSE Dental Service this week.  Only children who return their completed form to the school by Tuesday 29 November will be contacted by Roselawn Dental Clinic and given an appointment.  If you do not return your form by this date, you will need to contact the Dental Clinic at Roselawn Health Centre directly at 6464550.

Celtic Travelling Book Fair
The Book Fair will be in the school from Wednesday 30 November to Monday 05 December.  Feel free to call in at dropping off (08.30am-9.00am) and collection times (1.00pm – 2.30pm) to browse through the selection available.  This is a great opportunity to get started on your Christmas shopping!  The more books you buy, the more books the school will receive to help stock the school library.  A limited number of leaflets are available from beside the Parent Information Notice Board. 
From previous year’s experience, may we please ask that you Enter only via the Main Entrance and Exit only via the Blanchardstown Door?  This will ensure a smooth flow of people through the Book Fair area which is quite tight.

Donore Schools Athletic Cup 2011
“On Wednesday, 16 children from our school went to Donore Harriers Running Club.  There were many events and many schools competing. Everyone won a medal and the school won overall.  We all had great fun. We would like to thank all the teachers and parents who came to support us.” Molly, Sarah & Shannon – 5th Class

CHFC Dublin Minor A Team  
Congratulations to CHFC Dublin Minor A Football Champions who clinched the title on Tuesday in Parnell Park after victory over a gallant Ballyboden side. This is a major achievement and great credit must go to all involved.
