Scoil Mhuire Newsletter  December 2010

Dear Parents/ Guardians,  

As we approach another uncertain period of weather you will be delighted to know that this time your children will have books coming home in their bags at the  weekend and a list of work to do in the event that we have to resort to a closure again! This “Snow Pack” or work list is only to be done in the event of a closure.

Sincere thanks for your cooperation during our recent “weather crisis” and for the community spirit shown in clearing the school grounds and carpark. We are also aware that many families were marooned and unable to get their children to school. Those pupils will still be eligible for the school’s Full Attendance certificate provided those are the only absences in the year. 238/280 pupils managed to get to school on the 6th December. Text-a-Parent is proving very successful in keeping families up to date. If you change your mobile number please let us know immediately.

Mrs Kavanagh would like to thank families for  supporting our Book Fair which despite the snow was a great success. €4000 book sales meant ,€2300 worth of books for classroom libraries.


The Christmas season got underway on Tuesday night with the Carol Service in Horeswood  Church. Ms Lawlor’s and Mr Cadogan’s 3rd classes  put a lot of work into presenting the Christmas Story for the carols.

Assuming we have school as normal next week we will close for the Christmas holidays on Thursday at 12.30. Infants will go at 12 noon to avoid congestion. There will not be an early infant run so those children will travel on the 12.30 buses if they cannot be collected. We will re-open on Monday 10th January.

On behalf of all the staff and Board of Management I would like to extend Christmas greetings to all our families and wish you a Happy New Year!

Nollaig faoi shéan is faoi mhaise daoibh go léir!
