Old newspapers and t-shirts wanted!

3rd Class are taking part in the CraftEd education arts project and they are kindly asking if anyone has any old newspapers or old childrens t-shirts for 8-10 year olds at home (that you won’t be needing back) that they leave them into Ms Sarsfield’s room in the coming days.
This programme is run over 5 weeks so lots of newspaper will be needed!

Thank you
Ms.Sarsfield & 3rd Class


As it’s the time of year for various illnesses, should your child develop the highly contagious Novovirus (vomiting and diarrhoea), we would ask you to please keep them away from school for at least 48 hours AFTER their last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting.  This is in line with HSE guidelines.
