Principal’s Letter 26th November 2020

Dear Parents,

School Calendar

Our school calendar went on sale on Monday at a cost of €15. We have nearly 200 orders already and we are delighted with the response so far. All parents should have received an email with information. Please remember that the closing date for orders is Monday 30th November.

Cars parking on Chapel Hill

We have received reports of the footpath on Chapel Hill becoming blocked or obstructed by parked cars at school pick up and drop off times. We ask that the footpath be left clear for pedestrians to use safely and with enough space to facilitate social distancing please. It is also important that persons with buggies or wheelchairs have unobstructed use of the paths and are not forced out onto the road by parked cars. There are a number of parking spaces available in the Church Car Park and Lucan Village and families can use our Lollipop Lady to cross the road. We appreciate your cooperation

Information Night for Junior Infant Parents

Thanks to all the Junior Infant parents who logged into our Information Night last night. We are very grateful to Ms. Brennan, Ms. Friel and Ms. Garry for their attendance.

Christmas Jumpers – 18th and 22nd December

All boys are welcome to wear a Christmas jumper to school on the 18th December. To reward the boys for all their hard work during Bob-a-Job we propose paying for the live stream of the Christmas pantomime, ‘The Sword in the Stone’, on the 18th December. The boys can wear their Christmas jumpers on the last day (Tues 22nd Dec) also in aid of Vincent de Paul.

‘Cycle South’ Programme – South Dublin County Council

South Dublin County Council has an ambition to become one of Ireland’s most cycle friendly counties. To deliver this they have prepared an ambitious programme of work that proposes over 200km of new and significantly improved cycle lanes over the next 10 years that would deliver a safe, desirable and connected cycle network. As part of preparing this programme they would like to hear your views about what you think the priorities should be. This could offer potential, safer cycle routes around Lucan village for the boys to cycle to school. Please check the following link for more information: file:///C:/Users/Principal/Downloads/66774%20SDCC%20Cycle%20Draft%20Strategy%20Poster%20A2%20HR%20(1).pdf

Second Class

The second classes have been learning about the continents for the past few weeks. This week they completed research projects at home about a continent of their choice and presented them to the class. Ms. Walsh and Ms. Staunton are so impressed with the high standard of work from the classes and thank the boys for the fantastic efforts made. Both classes are busy planning and writing an original fairy-tale for narrative writing in English. They also painted lovely winter scenes in art. In science they are learning all about penguins. The boys have really enjoyed learning about the history of cars and Henry Ford. Many thanks to Ms. Walsh and Ms. Staunton for their hard work.
