Mobile Phone Recycle Appeal

Dear Parents,

The Irish Autism Action website have a campaign running currently that would enable the children to win prizes for their school. All we have to do is collect 500 old mobile phones and we can win an interactive white board for our school including installation. This would save thousands in fund raising and all it means is that you hunt out your old mobile phones lurking in a drawer somewhere and bring them to school to be dropped off. Ask your family to look for their old mobile phones or you could set up a box in your work place and ask work mates to bring in their old mobile phones too. There isn’t a cut off date for this campaign so you could keep on collecting as the time goes on.

There is so much work involved in fund raising, if we could raise this amount of old mobile phones it would save us a lot of money!!!

Please bring in your old mobile phones and drop them into Hilda’s office.

Thanks a mill!!!

Notification of Parents Association Meeting Wednesday 9th Feb at 8pm


There will be a Parents Association Committee Meeting held at the school next Wednesday 9th Feb at 8pm.

At this meeting we intend to discuss the upcoming Cow Pat Bingo Event. This Event was run for the last year and it was a very successful and rewarding event for the Gaelscoil.

We would like this event to go ahead again this year but in order for this to be possible we really need the support of the parents. There is a lot of work involved in an event of this nature. For example we need people in a variety of roles; such as advertising, (organising tickets, signs,flyers etc;) entertainment (games, contests, PA system); food vendors and general organisation for the day.

A detailed list will be posted at Hilda’s office and in the corridor of the new building. We would like parents to look at this list and sign-up for an area that they would like to be involved in. We are aware that not all parents will have the opportunity to see this list before Wed 9th Feb. If this is the case and you are interested please contact Miriam.

Ideally 3 representatives from each class would ensure enough pairs of hands resulting in a manageable workload for all.

Please get involved; any contribution is welcome and necessary if A) this event is to go ahead and B) be a success.

Contributions from fundraising events helps fund the schools operational expenses, school books, classroom supplies etc

Best regards,

Yvonne (Secretary)
