Cake Sale Friday 23rd Oct 2015

This Friday 23rd Oct 2015, 5th class will host the first cake sale of this school year. We would ask that all kids bring at least €1 to school on Friday so that they can buy a bun or cake. There will be gluten free cakes available and there is a strict nut free policy for all the baking - including almond flour. Last year the monthly cake sales raised over €3000 for the school funds. It is a very enjoyable way for all kids to be involved in fundraising for the school and as last year each class will get their turn to host their own cake sale. So happy baking 5th class!

Aonach Leabhair/ Book Fair

You may be aware that the Book Fair is starting in the School tomorrow morning (14th Oct 2015).

Every day the Book Fair will be open in the morning from 8.30am to 9.00am and in the afternoon from 1.30pm to 3.00pm and will be open on Wednesday 14th, Thursday 15th, Friday 16th and Monday 19th October 2015

Books are always a great idea for presents and why not be super organised and do some Christmas Present Shopping at the Book Fair.

This is an important Fundraiser for the School in terms of receiving Free Books.  The more books that the School sells over the course of the four days  – the more free books we earn for the school.  Usually about 60% of the sales comes back to the school in the form of free books. (This is the agreement between the school and the Book Fair company).

So it’s a win-win!  You get to buy and enjoy fabulous books and at the same time you are supporting our School by ensuring that every child in the school gets the opportunity to read more fantastic books during school hours.

Looking forward to seeing your all there.

Go raibh mile maith agat go léir.
