Catholic Schools Week – Celebrating the work of our local Catholic Schools

As in all schools throughout Ireland, Catholic Schools Week was celebrated in St Patrick’s during the week of 28th January. During the week the children took some time to think about their school, who founded it and why? They reflected on all that is good about our school and how it contributes to their lives. We are extremely proud of our school and the place that it has within our parish. We are privileged to be given the opportunity to work with the children in our care and will always endeavour to ensure that the love of God is evident in all that we do.

A big thank you to the many grandparents who came along to our Grandparents Day celebrations. It was a lovely celebration!

 

Nursery and P1 Applications

The on-line portal for application to Nursery and P1 is now closed. However, late applications will still be accepted. Parents making a late application will be required to complete a paper application form which can be accessed from the school reception.

Remember, you must still apply for a primary school place if your child currently attends the Nursery. Completed forms should be returned to reception along with a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

On the EA’s website www.eani.org.uk/admissions there are further guidelines for parents on how to provide additional information in support of an application already submitted or how to change their preferences after the closure of the Parent Portal.

Life Saving skills

We are delighted to have recently had our P6 and P7 children trained in the use of a defibrillator. We hope that they will never be in a situation where they need to use these life-saving skills. Remember, we now have a defibrillator in our school which is available for community use.

Shared Education

All classes will continue with their Shared link over Term 2, learning together continuing to build friendships.

Christmas Celebrations

Sincere thanks again to everyone who supported our Christmas Celebrations. All of the events certainly enhanced the wonderful atmosphere that Christmas brings. A special word of thanks goes to Santa Claus for making the trip to our school

The Foundation Stage performance of The Nativity Story and KS1 Christmas Concert were fantastic and the children who took part should be very proud of themselves. It was lovely to hear the wonderful feedback from parents and other family members. Thank you so much for the many compliments. The money raised from ticket sales has helped purchase the various resources needed for the show. Some of it was also used to fund the Christmas dinner and to purchase an additional wifi point for the assembly hall.
