School Notes 24/3/2015
(259) Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Another term is drawing to a close and Easter is upon us. The children are truly excited and looking forward to the celebration of Easter and all it entails.

 

To celebrate Easter, Fr Seamus Connell invites you and your family to join him at the Easter Ceremonies, in St Luke the Evangelist Church, during Holy Week.

 

The Solemn Celebration of the Lord’s Passion begins with the outdoor stations of the cross on Good Friday 3rd April. It would be wonderful for the parish community to support this new approach to the celebration.

 

On Easter Sunday, 5th April, Mass will be celebrated @ 11.00a.m. in St Luke’s National School. All are welcome. Further details on Easter Ceremonies will be issued as they become available.

 

I would like to thank all our families for their support over the second term of the school year.

 

The high percentage attendance of parents at the Parent /Teacher meetings set a solid foundation for the continuation of a successful school year. In addition punctuality of pupils has improved magnificently. Congratulations to all concerned for their efforts.

 

Please review the school website – it is regularly revamped. A Notice board is available on the new school website, outlining upcoming events – photographs and videos recount the progress that is taking place on a day to day basis. Links on the school website to “Vimeo” and “Flickr” display school videos and photographs respectively. Please review these with your children.

 

Confirmation & First Holy Communion take place after Easter. Once again the teachers are working wonders in their preparation of the children.

 

However, it is your day to day support of the teaching staff that ensures a strong partnership in education and assists in providing the children with a meaningful and worth while educational experience.

 

I am grateful to the Parents’ Association who have dedicated themselves to the school in so many ways throughout the second term. Thank you for all you do for our pupils.

 

Please recall those who are needier than ourselves and give generously to the Trócaire Lenten Campaign. The Trócaire boxes are to be returned after the Easter Holidays to the class teacher in school. This year, with a little luck and your continued generosity, hopefully over €1000 will be raised breaking the school record to date.

 

School re-opens on Monday 13thApril 2015 @ 9.00a.m.

Pupil Online Database (POD)
(254) Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Dear Parents,

 

 

 

The Department of Education and Skills are developing a pupil online database for Primary schools.

 

The acronym for the Pupil Online Database is P.O.D.

 

The D.E.S guidelines are quite clear in regard to P.O.D.

 

On behalf of the school I am forwarding you the following information:

  1. This cover letter
  2. Information note for parents on the Primary Online Database
  3. Letter from the Department of Education and Skills re P.O.D.
  4. Pupil Information Sheet (to be completed by parents and returned to school)

 

The Pupil Information sheet must be returned by Wednesday 18th March 2015 or earlier to the class teacher.

 

Fortunately the requirements to complete the Pupil Information Sheet are not too onerous as there is some information pre recorded on the Pupil Information Sheet.
