Cruinniú Tuismitheoirí Múínteoirí/Parent teacher Meetings

Beidh ár gcruinnithe tuismitheoirí-múinteoirí ar siúl do gach páiste ó Rang na Naíonáin bheaga go Rang a 6 ar an Luan an 27ú agus ar an Máirt an 28ú/11/2017. Beidh coinneadh ag dul abhaile go luath.

Parent Teacher Meetings for all classes from junior infants up to 6th class will be held on Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th of November. Classes will finish early at 1:40pm on Monday the 27th to  allow for these meetings. An appointment for each child will be sent home this week.

Ná déan dearmad gur deich nóiméad an t-am atá leagtha amach duit agus má tá gá le cruinniú breise is féidir é a eagrú níos déanaí. Just a reminder that meetings will be no more than 10 minutes long and if a longer meeting is required it can be schedueled for a later date. Go raibh maith agaibh!

Míle buíóchas don iarracht iontach a rinne ár páistí ar fad! We collected Christmas Shoe boxes again for the ‘Hope Shoe box Appeal’ this year and sent them onto children in poorer countries.
