Garda Vetting

Dear Parents,

Some parents attend swimming lessons, football matches and other sporting events.  Parents may like to help in the changing rooms and as you are aware, child protection is of paramount importance and for that reason we request that anyone wishing to volunteer must complete and return a Vetting Invitation form (available by clicking the link below or on request from the school office), if you have not already done so in the last two years.

Unfortunately, you will be unable to assist or volunteer at sporting events if you have not been Garda Vetted.  All information will be kept strictly confidential.

Therefore, we request that you return the Vetting Form (if applicable) with Section 1 – Personal Information fully completed, and return to the school no later than Friday 8th November.  Those returning a completed Vetting Form must also supply one copy of photo ID validation and one copy of address verification, as detailed in Section 2 – Applicant’s Consent and Signature.

Regards,
Máire Boyle
Principal

Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

 

The shoe box appeal leaflets are in the process of being sent home with the children, for those who wish to participate in this appeal.  It is by no means compulsory.

This year Team Hope have supplied us with pre-printed flat pack boxes for this purpose; however you may still use normal shoe boxes.  We will distribute one per family on Monday.

Please note that all filled shoe boxes must be returned to school by Wednesday 23rd October, as our local Team Hope collector has asked.  Any shoe boxes received after this date will be sent home again with the children for you to take to a collection point yourself.

Each classroom will store their own shoe boxes until the collection day.
