Internet Safety Talk

Internet Safety

The Parent Association have organised a talk on Internet Safety for all parents on the 11th of December in the school starting at 7pm. We encourage all parents to attend this talk as we feel it is essential that parents realise the potential dangers and consequences for their children by being online

The school has also organised for this person to attend the school on the same day to give a talk to 3rd & 4th class and 5th & 6th class.

Our first Arts Week was a tremendous success and we hope we will be in a position to run it again next year.

Thanks to Múinteoir Ciara, Ruth, Therese and Jacinta Purcell for all their help during the week.

The total raised was €826 and this will go towards the Lip Sync Fundraiser. Thank you to all who supported in any way.
