Nuachtlitir na Cincíse/June Newsletter

Nuachtlitir na Cincíse

Tá cabhair uainn an deireadh seachtain seo le’d thoil. Toisc flaithiúlacht Paul Coyne, tuismitheoir sa scoil, tá ceadúnas bailúcháin sráide againn timpeall ar an Sráid Árd don Aoine agus an Satharn. Beidh timpeall ochtar ag teastáil gach uair chun na stáisiúin a chlúdú. Más féidir leat uair a thabhairt dúinn, bheimís an-bhuíoch dá gcuirfeá glaoch ar an oifig.

We need your help at the weekend if possible. Due to the generosity of Paul Coyne, one of our parents, we have been given a street collection permit for High Street and the surrounding areas including Market Cross and Dunnes Stores shopping areas. Given that this is the Cat Laughs weekend, this is a huge opportunity to make another major impact on our fundraising efforts arising out of our building project and our plans to develop our grounds, including an all weather pitch. Please contact the office immediately or Máistir Seán on 087 4192322 if you can give us an hour of your time between 10 am and 6 pm either on Friday or Saturday.

All of the speakers are parents in the school giving their time voluntarily but all are hugely respected in the area. The meeting will begin at 8 pm and will last no longer than an hour with teas and coffees available afterwards. The poster for the event is attached to this newsletter.

We have a very special art exhibition and sale taking place in the new school foyer next Thursday evening the 4th June. Every child in the school has completed a unique piece of art and these have been beautifully framed with the help of our teachers and with special help to the staff from Catherine Barron, one of our parents. All of the artworks will be displayed at a special exhibition opening with cheese and wine and soft drinks. You will be able to purchase the art works, with all proceeds being added to the Rith Beo fund for our Astroturf development. If any parent has access to portable display stands we can use for the exhibition, we would appreciate this also.
