A message from the Parents Association

The Parents Association Committee held their first face to face meeting in two years on Wednesday the 16th of February in the school. It was lovely to be back in the school, we want to take this opportunity to thank Ms Clarke & all the staff for all their fantastic efforts in keeping our children safe throughout this pandemic.

With all activities such as swimming and school tours resuming, the parent’s association have been asked to do some fundraising to help with the cost of buses for all these activities. We hope to hold a bake sale on Sunday the 13th of March after 11am mass in the school. In the past bake sales have been hugely successful and enjoyable events for the parish. More information to follow in the coming weeks.
