Welcome back to all our pupils and a special welcome to our newest little pupils in Junior Infants. We have twenty nine junior infants this year. They are attending school until 12 o’ clock at present but will be in school for the full week from next Monday. I am glad to report that they are settling in very well with their teacher Mrs. P. Power and making new friends in school. We also welcome two new senior infant pupils, bringing the number in Ms. Sprice’s class to twenty nine also. With 222 pupils in the school, may I remind parents to drive very carefully at all times in the car park for the safety of the children.
We welcome Múinteoir Connie and Mr. Séamus Lavan back to the school this year. Múinteoir Connie replaces Ms. Lorna Ryan who has taken up a position in a school in Mullingar. We wish Ms. Ryan well in her new job. Mr. Lavan has been reappointed to teach third class for the remainder of the year. We also welcome three new part-time teachers to the school – Ms. Aisling Brennan (Learning Support Teacher) whom we share with Butlerstown N.S. and Mrs. Sharon Swanson (Resource Teacher) whom we share with Fenor N.S. and Mrs. Cathy O’ Leary (Resource Teacher) who has come to us from St. Ursula’s N.S. for this year.
