We have had a very busy September so far!  The children have been busy making lovely vegetable soup, using produce from our own school garden.  We all really enjoyed eating it as well as some home-made bread on the side!  The school photographer, who comes every second year, will visit the school on the 23rd September to take individual photos, group photos and a school photo.  Our Parents’ Association AGM will take place on Thursday 29th September at 8pm in the school.  All parents are welcome to come along.  We will have a guest speaker on the night, Maureen Brennan, a representative from the NPC (National Parents’ Council) who will give a brief presentation on the work of the Council.  Refreshments will be provided also.  We look forward to seeing you all there!
