What a turnout! #ChristmasFair

The fair isn’t possible without so many volunteering Mums, Dads, Teachers, Principles and of course your attendance.  

What a fantastic turnout too. Poor Santa looked like he was exhausted… here are a few photos with some of the people that help make it happen – thank you so much.

The JPA AGM took place on September 20th. A big thank you to those who attended on such rainy night.
We say farewell and thank you to the committee members who have stepped down and are delighted to welcome new members on board.

Family Subscription.
The Parents’ Association works to help the school to enrich your child’s educational experience. It also aims to promote the school community by organising activities throughout the year.

Your contribution is highly valued and allows the Parents’ Association to complete this important work. The subscription is €10 per family but whatever you can afford will be much appreciated.
