Scoil Mhuire Newsletter January 2011

Dear Parents/ Guardians,  

Happy New Year to all our families and to those in the wider school community who help us throughout the year. I hope that 2011 will bring optimism and good health to all.  

Swine flu alert

As you will be aware from news programmes the Swine flu is prevalent again. We will do our utmost in school to ensure good hygiene and follow the same protocols as last year. If a child has flu symptoms please do not send them to school. 

Junior Infant enrolments

We are now taking applications for enrolment for 2011/12 Junior Infants. The enrolment period is from Jan 10th to 28th February 2011. Enrolment packs are available from Ann in the office. Depending on the numbers applying for places the Board of Management will determine enrolments in early March. While we advertise throughout the parish and in local papers we would ask you to let families who do have children currently in the school but are of a school going age know of our enrolment period. Junior Infant enrolments will not be considered after 28th February 2011. 

Notes for non-attendance

Please remember to send in a written note for any absences. A short statement with the reason for absence will suffice. These written records are required when returning information to the National Welfare Board throughout the year.

Fundraising Night

The proceeds of the next Ballykelly Hall dance on Friday 14th January will be for the Power family of Aclare. As you already know Emma Power from 1st class is currently recovering from brain surgery at Temple St Hospital in Dublin where her parents Geraldine and Edward have been keeping a constant vigil. Emma’s road to recovery is going to be a long and difficult one and proceeds from the dance will go to support her needs. Tickets cost €7 and are available through the school office as well as Centra in Campile or directly from Fr Kenny or Jim Foley.

Staff meeting

Our staff meeting for this term will be held on Thursday 20th January at 2pm. Infants can be collected at half one with buses running at 2pm. Arrangements for pupil /teacher meetings will be discussed at the meeting.

Confirmation Meeting

Information was sent out prior to the Christmas holidays about a meeting this Weds 12th January for parents of Confirmation candidates. It will be held in the school at 7.30pm.

Campile Panto

To cheer us up through the dark winter nights  Campile Panto will take to the stage with “Robin Hood Meets Frankenstein” in Campile Hall starting Jan 27th. We wish all those taking part a very successful production.
