A Thuiste,

I hope that you all enjoyed the weekend and that the páistí are all happy and well.

It was great to see all the happy smiley faces on our Zoom meeting. It was also great to meet the family cats and see all the toys from home!!

I will arrange another call soon and will let you know the details. Thank you to all who joined in!

Thank you also to all of you who have collected your children`s school books , scrapbooks etc. I hope the páistí have enjoyed looking back through the photographs with their friends and that you have enjoyed seeing their wonderful paintings!

I still have a couple of bags that haven’t been collected yet. I will email you with a time and date to collect them. They will be left on a table in the school yard with your child`s name on the bag so I would advise coming at the assigned time. Feel free to email me on if the time does not suit and I can arrange to have them left out at another time. I will be in contact with the other teachers so we can arrange siblings packs to be left out for collection on the same day.

Here is this week`s work. Only do what you can.

As always you are welcome to take photos and send on any work to me at .
