Strictly come Céilí Mór, Friday January 30th 2015 in Actons Hotel

Just another gentle reminder to be ready for this Friday night (30th Jan 2015) and the Céilí Mór in Actons hotel. Remember you will need a ticket, dancing shoes and possibly a babysitter!!

Thanks to all the parents who have purchased tickets. We will be sending the tickets home with your child between now and Thursday.

For those wondering how to purchase tickets you can either:

- Use the envelope which was sent home last week
- Tickets will be on sale outside the school on Thursday and Friday afternoons.

Spot prizes:
We are also looking for a few more spot prizes for the night for example bottles of wine, boxes of chocolates or perhaps unwanted Christmas presents (eg a coffee machine) etc.

Do you have a cupboard full of boxes of chocolates that are tempting you to break your new years resolutions?
Did you got a bottle of Whiskey for Christmas and you dont drink whiskey?
Did you got a Christmas present that is still in its box and is unlikely to see the light of day?
We would be very pleased to receive these gifts. If you would like to pass them onto Trish Ryan that would be great.

Thanks again for all the support. It is certainly shaping up to be a great night.

Cake Sale Friday! (16th January 2015)

This coming Friday, 16th January 2015, Muinteoir Siobhans class (half of 2nd and half of 3rd) will be hosting the monthly cake sale. We would ask that each child would be given at least €1 going to school on Friday to buy a bun/cake. So far the school cake sales have raised over €1000 for the school fundraising and the kids have really enjoyed being shopkeepers for a morning! As usual there will be a tray of gluten/wheat/dairy free buns and as always a strict nut free policy will be adhered to.
