Christmas Shoebox Appeal



It is that time of year again. You and your family have the opportunity to fill a Christmas Shoe Box for a child in either Eastern Europe or Africa who will not get any other presents for Christmas.
It does take effort for us to fill the boxes but it is so worthwhile when you see their faces on the videos and hear back the happiness it gives them through their letters. The children do be delighted with the box and so do their parents, if they are with them.
For more details check out

All classes will be creating shoeboxes, it would be appreciated if everyone could donate a little.

Last date for submitting the filled shoeboxes is Friday 27th October

Thank You.

Schools to Remain Closed Tomorrow – Tuesday 17 October 2017

Following careful consideration by the National Emergency Coordination Group, the Department of Education and Skills, has decided that all schools will remain closed tomorrow.
This decision was primarily taken in the interests of child safety and on the basis of information available in what is a developing situation.  While it is recognised that some schools may not be as badly impacted as others, the information available at this time indicates that over 350,000 businesses and homes are already without power, and severe winds continue to cause damage across the country as the storm progresses. Many regional and local roads are closed due to fallen trees.
It is also the case that school authorities will in very many cases not have had an opportunity to check their buildings and confirm they are safe, have power and water, and that routes to the school are safely open.
It is recognised that the decision to close schools will have a major impact on families and on the workforce. However, this decision has been taken in the interests of safety for children and to provide clarity for everyone concerned.
