Reminders before mid-term

Just a few deadlines to note for the week before mid-term... Children may dress in fancy dress this Friday 25th October. We ask that you do not dress them in Killer Clown costumes as this can be frightening for the younger children. Fancy dress is, of course, optional. If you wish to fill a shoebox for the Team Hope appeal, please collect your form and empty shoebox this week. There are only a few boxes left. Filled shoeboxes should be brought in to school AFTER mid-term The Board of Management elections will take place in November so nomination forms should be returned to the school by this Friday 25th. 2 BoM members must be elected from the parent body (as per letter sent home) Christ

Theatre Trip

Fifth and Sixth Classes recently travelled to Westport Town Hall to watch the performance of "God Has No Country", the acclaimed one-man show written and performed by Donal Courtney The play tells the story of Monsignor Hugh O’Flaherty’s war time exploits in Rome. O’Flaherty was an Irish cleric based in the Vatican who, along with a secret network of noble helpers, was responsible for saving almost 6,500 people from being captured by the Nazis.
