Rubella (German Measles)
There has been a case of Rubella in one of the First Classes. A letter has been sent home with all children in the individual class.

Should any families be happy to donate schoolbooks which they no longer need, to the school, we would be delighted to receive them on the last day of term. School uniform items in very good condition will also be accepted.

Collections during School Day
If you need to collect your child during the school day, please do not do so during yard time (10.20-10.30am and 12.00-12.30pm) as children must be signed out through the main office before leaving the premises. Children are not permitted to leave the classroom until a parent/guardian has arrived at Reception to collect them. Your cooperation in this matter would be very much appreciated.

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 or the Main Office as soon as possible as it will be necessary for you to complete a Transfer Form. We have a large 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.
