ACCORD Primary Schools Relationship Programme
A reminder that ACCORD will deliver a Parent Talk (prior to the course for the children) on Thursday night 26th March at 8pm in the Tigers Room in the school. Entry to the building will be via the Tigers (Diswellstown) Door. The parents of all 4th class girls and all 5th and 6th class children are encouraged to attend this talk which many parents find very helpful in dealing with what can be a sensitive subject.

Walking to School
"Since the weather is now improving, we would ask you all if you live close, please try your best not to use a car and to walk, cycle or use a scooter to come to school. Try to encourage your child to do their best". On behalf of the Green School Committee - David Fraine & Luke Doyle - 6th Class

Meeting with Teachers
All questions / queries re school should be directed initially to the class teacher. Please contact the school secretary to make an appointment. (For safety reasons it is not possible for class teachers to meet with parents or take phone calls during class time). Parents of Infant children may be able to have a quick informal word with the class teacher when collecting their child at home time.

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.
