Congratulations to our 6th Class Children who received the Sacrament of Confirmation today.

Friday Choir
Friday Choir will have its last practice this week. Thank you to all the children who have taken part, it has been great fun each week. I hope to see you all back next September. Ms G Meade.

Books for September 2012
It is our intention to expand our free school book scheme from September 2012.  Currently the children have access to History, Geography, Science, SPHE or Music books in the classroom.  Next year’s booklists will not include English Readers, Irish or Religion textbooks.  This will be funded from school funds, PA funds and Extra Payments monies.  Please note there will be no increase in the Extra Payments Fee.  Each child will have access to the required books for these subjects at school and for homework.  In the last week of term, we will buy back second hand copies of Bun go Barr, English Readers and Alive O Textbooks. We are also delighted to accept donated copies.  Please expect a letter early next week with further details.

Moving House? 
If you are moving house or emigrating and your child will not be returning to St Patrick’s in the new school year, it is vital that you make contact with the class teacher or the Main Office as soon as possible as it will be necessary for you to complete a Transfer Form.   We have a number of children on waiting lists for all classes and we would like to be able to contact these parents as soon as possible.

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 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.
