Notices for the week beginning Monday January 8th 2018

6th Jan 2018

Happy new year everyone! We hope you had a fabulous Christmas and are ready now to get back to normal routines! If you haven't already checked out all the photographs from the various celebrations make sure you have a look at all the news sections on the website.

Please note that the children will not return to school until Tuesday January 9th. The staff will be training on Monday the 8th. If any P1 or Nursery applications are still to be returned, they can be dropped into the office on Monday. The deadline is 12pm on Wednesday January 10th. Please note that even an application handed in at 1pm on that date would be deemed late and not considered until Stage Two of the process in April, by which time the majority of places throughout the city have already been allocated.

Clubs will begin again during the week beginning Monday January 15th. More information will follow in next week's notices. Kids Club 3-5pm will however begin on Tuesday January 9th as usual.

As we begin this new year, we ask for your support in two main areas: uniform and punctuality. The main sticking point with uniform is shoes which as each terms progresses tend to come in all shapes and colours. Could we ask everyone to send the children to school in plain, black, flat shoes. In addition, it would be greatly appreciated if all children could be in school before 9am so that they are settled and ready to begin class at that time.

As January can be such an unpredictable month for weather can I ask that you keep us up to date with mobile numbers as our text messaging service is our main method of contacting you all.

And so... let 2018 in school begin.....
