We are looking forward to a day of seasonal cheer on Thursday. We are delighted to be able to give children this opportunity to participate in creating traditional seasonal photos. Every child has the option to have a photo – many families have ordered copies – there is no obligation to do so.

We are also doing a fundraiser for Barnados https://www.barnardos.ie The school community has accessed supports from Barnados many times and will do so as needs arise in the future. As part of dress up, pjs and movie day, we ask that people make a contribution to Barnados – €2.00 or more if you can spare it. Children can bring the €2.00 for collection at the gates at morning drop off. Families can give the money to one child if that’s easier to organise.

While many people love dressing up, some children do not. We leave it up to families to go with what works for you. Dressing up can be as simple as wearing winter clothes or adding bling with stars, jumpers, hats, baubles, pjs etc.

We look forward to seeing beautiful photos next week. Thanks to Ciara and PTA for facilitating this event.
