Return of the cake sale - Friday 18th October 2019

The first cake sale of 2019-2020 will take place tomorrow Friday 18th October 2019 and will be hosted by 5th class. Please send in at least €1 with each child going to school tomorrow to buy a cake. There will be a gluten-free corner and there is a strict nut-free policy for all cakes.

For new parents to the school just to let you know these monthly cake sales generate approximately €3,000 a year towards the Parents Association fundraising and the kids love it - both the selling and buying. And the baking of course! Each class gets a chance to host a cake sale throughout the school year. So please remember to support 5th class tomorrow

The Lir Quartet

Haydn String Quartet Op.77 No.1
Schubert String Quartet in E flat major D.87
Shostakovich String Quartet No. 3 in F major Op. 73

Founded for Barry Douglas’ 2017 Clandeboye Festival, the Lir Quartet is one of Ireland’s most exciting chamber groups. Joined for their fourth tour for the Foundation this autumn by violinist Patrick Rafter, they present three great works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Haydn’s two quartets Op.77, written in 1799, were his last creations in the genre that he shaped and developed for half a century. Schubert’s E flat quartet D.87 was written in 1813 when Schubert was just 17 and, while not on the dramatic scale of his late quartets, is a masterpiece of Viennese charm and elegance. Shostakovich’s third quartet, from 1946, is one of the finest, most evocative works in the repertoire, a heart-rending response to the horror of the second world war.

Parents of the 2018 Gaelscoil alumni!

The class of 2018 are very welcome to volunteer at the Gaelscoil during the weeks of 10th and 17th June 2019. The school is happy to take 2-4 pupils from 9am to 1:30pm each day as long as they speak in Irish at all times, leave their phones with Hilda and get to work assisting Sinead and the other teachers helping out and doing odd jobs.

So if interested let me know asap via text 0879788132 so we will work up the rota. This was very popular with the previous three years and a great way for them to brush up on their Irish skills again.

Can you please spread the word to parents who may no longer be receiving Gaelscoil Nuacht Eile!
