Skipping Ropes

Details about ordering skipping ropes and prices from today’s Skip Hop Workshop went out recently in the May/June e-Zine.  Anyone who wishes to purchase skipping ropes may order and pay by next Friday 2nd June, so that we can order them and get delivery before the end of term; please ensure money is placed in an envelope clearly marked with your child/ren/s name/s and the precise items being ordered.

Prices are as follows:

Children’s ropes 2.1m and 2.5m – €6

Xtenders - €3; Double dutch ropes 4.5m – €15 per pair

Adult ropes 2.7m – €8

Family ropes 4.5m – €10.

Music Lessons

There may have been some confusion over when the last music lesson with Anne McLoughlin is/was.  There were 7 sessions scheduled since January, which means the last session should be next Wednesday 31st May – unfortunately, Anne is not available on that date; therefore the last music lesson of this year will be on Wednesday 14th June. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
