Thank You to Parent Helpers
A big thank you to our 1st class parent volunteers who covered sets of books over the weekend. This could not have happened without the generous support of our parent ‘Helping Hands’ who prepared the packs.  We look forward to using our new books in September.

Choir Concert
The Choir is holding a “Musicals” concert on Friday 7 June at 7pm.

Diswellstown Summer Camp
There are a limited number of places still available in both junior and senior summer camp which takes place 1st-5th July. The cost is 55 for 1 child, 105 for 2 children and 155 for 3 children. If interested, please take an application form from reception and return to Ms L.McDermott/Ms. Parker/Ms.C.O'Reilly ASAP. Places will be allocated on a “first come, first served” basis.

Re-Registration Forms
Thank you to everyone who has already returned their Re-Registration Forms. If you have not already done so, we would appreciate if they could be returned to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible. Please note that each child should return an individual form.

Moving House?
If you are moving house 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 and 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.
