NEWSLETTER 5.12.2013

Dear Parents / Guardians,

ETHOS: The children are learning about Festivals of Light. We have been decorating our Divas so our assembly shall be beautifully lit. We have continued into December with the theme of Human Rights, as it fits so nicely with this months core value - freedom.

VISITORS: We had 25 students visiting us from St Patricks College today. We have been in contact with the college and were keen to show off our school at this unique stage. There was a great buzz when they were visiting and we look forward to developing our relationship with the colleges in the future. Have a look at the photos below.

STAFF: We would like to welcome Laura onto our staff. Laura will be our learning support teacher and we are delighted to have her on board. Our SNA has been appointed also and shall be joining us in January 2014. Jessica shall be in this post until then.

ASSEMBLY: Reminder that parents are invited to morning assembly on 13th of December. We look forward to seeing you there.

Have a nice weekend,
