Reminders/Notices
• A colourful mural was painted on the western wall during the months of June and July
• The playground markings were repainted last week
• Dog poo had become a major problem on the school grounds. This is a serious issue with regard to the health and safety of the pupils. Please keep dogs off the school grounds.
• Keep a vigilant eye out for head lice every week and please contact the school secretary if there is an outbreak and parents will be alerted.
• Please continue your support of health lunches in the school – good habits start young
• Keep a check on homework and ensure it is fully completed. This will enable you to keep up-to-date with your child’s progress and where they may be experiencing difficulty in any subject.

We hope that the school year 2016/2017 will be a happy and fruitful year for all of us.
