Poster Competition - sponsored by Parents Association
Thank you to all the Children who entered the SAFETY COMPETITION by drawing a poster. We had a great response to this and hopefully it has helped to deliver the message to everyone about the importance of walking with your bicycles/scooters from the school gate. This Competition is now closed and the open draw for the bicycle, kindly donated by Fingal County Council, will take place at the Christmas Fair this Sunday. We will announce the individual class winners and runners up within the next week or so. The Parents Association has funded the prizes for first and second place in each class.

School Milk Scheme
Payment for the remainder of the school year is now due. We have extended the last day for accepting payment to Wednesday 05 December. Please ensure your child's name, their teacher's name and "School Milk" are on the outside of the envelope, together with payment by cheque/postal order or bank draft of €17.50 made out to "St Patrick's N.S".

Interactive Whiteboards
Interactive Whiteboards have been installed in the two Fifth Classes and one of the Fourth Classes. We hope to be in a position to purchase more Interactive Whiteboards next year. The eventual aim is that there will be an Interactive Whiteboard in each classroom.
