Congratulations to Aoibhinn Harney who is the overall winner of the recycled Christmas decoration competition this year. Aoibinn received her award at a reception in Dunlaoghaire Rathdown Co Co last week.
School website: We have recently updated our website. New content will be added on an ongoing basis. We would encourage you to engage with the website as a source of information in relation to important school policies, events and news. You may access the website at www.stattractasjns.ie
Collecting Children from school: We would ask parents to inform teachers of any changes to home time arrangements- please speak to the class teacher in the morning to inform him/her if anybody other than the person who regularly collects is collecting your child. Otherwise teachers will have to telephone parents to clarify the matter before the child is released from school.
We would ask parents and minders to vacate the school grounds as quickly as possible at the end of the school day. Please discourage children from swinging on the bicycle racks and climbing over the perimeter wall into the waste ground between the school and the all weather pitches. This area is very overgrown and may contain sharp objects, broken bottles etc.
Car Parking: We would like to remind you again not to drop off or collect children in the Broadford Road car park or on the double yellow lines outside the schools. Parents are asked to bring these messages to the attention of child minders.
Enrolments for 2017/2018: The closing date for receipt of completed applications for Junior Infants for the 2018/2019 school year is Friday 19th January 2018 at 3.00pm. Please consult the school website for details of the application process.
From all of us in the Junior School we wish you the peace and joy that Christmas brings.
