Newsletter January 2018

Newsletter February 2018

I returned to work on the 29th of January having taken time out due to illness. I am delighted to be back in the school Many thanks to all the people who enquired after me, who sent me cards and to all the people who said a prayer. I am very grateful. Mrs Claire Fitzgerald managed the school so well in my absence that many people didn’t even know I was out and all the staff rowed in behind her.  I am very grateful for their professionalism.

As you know many children have mobiles phones now in classes as young as fourth class. Phones can be very helpful in keeping contact with your child and this helps keep them safe. However they can also be detrimental to communication in the home with children not really ‘being there’ …in the sense their minds are elsewhere, texting or browsing the inter net. Sadly, sometimes reports of nasty texts sent to children are reported to me and this causes much unhappiness. Please speak to your child often on the correct usage of mobile phones and the importance of being kind and nice to each other. I know you are all in harmony with me. Zeeko, a company based in U.C.D. will visit the school to work with children, staff and parents (in the evening) on internet and mobile phone safety. The date is 17th of April.

Also, a company called “Sticks and Stones” will work with 6th and 5th classes this term. I believe strongly in the power of drama as a medium to help children socialise in a harmonious way, This company is a drama group that will do just that. The staff will also work with them to revise our care programme. Cornafulla has a high reputation for good discipline and we will strive to maintain this.

Uniform Check-An impromptu uniform check demonstrated that 97% of children are wearing the correct uniform. Well done parents!! Having put four children through Primary and Secondary school I know it is not easy. Remember girls are not allowed to wear leggings.

The new date for Confession is the 21st of March.

Marie Brady is our new Gaelic coach.

Children in 3rd class are enjoying athletics in the A.I.T. each week using their fantastic facilities.

Sr. Annette our religious advisor,is calling to see the children on the 26th of February.

The school will close on the 9th of March to work on the new child protection guidelines. This day has been sanctioned by the Department.

Fourth class will visit Clonmacnoise on Wednesday  as they are learning about the Vikings and monasteries.

The teachers will use an on-line music programme called dabble-doo this term. It is an imaginative and inspirational programme.

New Child Protection Procedures will tighten security in schools. Any adult entering the school must report to Majella at the office. If that person wishes to collect a child or even enter the school building that person must sign in at the door and if necessary sign the child out. If the office is unattended please keep ringing the bell at the right of the main door.

There will be a staff meeting in March. I will let you know details as soon as possible. The school is permitted to close at two on that day. I want to align the meeting with training for teachers so I have to wait for a facilitator’s reply.

I want to thank our Parents Association who worked so hard for us over the years,. Unfortunately it has temporally dissolved. However some members continued on to do the clothes collection and that was great. We will look at forming a new committee in the future. In the meantime could you give your name to Majella if you are willing to meet with myself, Karen o Brien and Aine Lennon to organise a walk in May in aid if the school. It would also be a nice social event.

Joan Conway ( Principal)
