We welcome Múinteoir Máire Nic Dhonncha. Máire replaces Múinteoir Sorcha who has returned to Co. Mayo and she will be teaching Rang 3.

2. Cruinniú Tús Bliana
I mbliana tá na múinteoirí ag eagrú cruinniú tús bliana do ghach rang. ‘Sé an cuspóir atá leis na cruinnithe seo ná aithne a chur ar mhúinteoir do pháiste, eolas a fháil faoin gcuraclam agus polsaithe scoile.
Following the success of the “start of the year meetings” in recent years we have decided that all class teachers will hold a meeting for the parents of children in their classes. The meeting will take place in the child’s classroom and the times of the meetings are as follows:
5/9/’16: Rang Córa - 6:30
Rang Máire - 7:00
Rang Cáit – 7:30
Rang Ruth – 8:00
6/9/’16: Rang Irene – 6:30
Rang Ríona – 7:00
Rang Laoise – 7:30
The aim of these meetings is for you to get a chance to meet your child’s class teacher and also to learn about the curriculum for the year and ways you may be able to help your child learn. I would hope that we will have full attendance at these meetings as I feel they will be of great benefit to you as you help your child in their learning during this academic year.
