End of Year News, Happy Holidays, September Ready

As we come to the end of another busy and successful school year here at Scoil Eanna, we want to inform you of a few developments over the last number of weeks and advise you of some arrangements for the next school year.

We would like to sincerely congratulate all the children who made their First Holy Communion and Confirmation in May. They all participated beautifully in their separate services and did themselves, their families and their school proud. The schoo! community is indeed indebted to the teachers and staff of the school who so willingly support parents and families at these special times.

The Board of Management and all of the staff here in Scoil Eanna greatly appreciate the contribution of the Parents’ Association to the life of the school. Your presence and support enables the school to be truly part of the community. While this often takes the form of monetary assistance it also includes the attendance of parents at every significant occasion organised in school over the course of every year. The school experience for all the children and each gathering is enhanced by your presence and by your commitment to support children and staff.

School will re-open on Wednesday 28″ of August at 9.15am. As usual Junior and Senior Infants will line up at the front door. First Class will line up in the yard for the first time and teachers will be available to organise this for the first few mornings. Junior Infants will be finishing school at 12.30pm

for the first two weeks in September. From Monday 16″ September the Junior Infant school day will end at the usual 2.00pm.

° If paying by instalments all fees must £2 paid by the end of December 2019.

e If you wish to negotiate an alternative payment method, please do not hesitate to make contact.

Finally, we would {ike to wish all members of Rang 6 the very best of luck as they prepare to move on to post-primary school. They will be remembered here in Scoil Eanna as being lively, inquisitive, engaged and engaging! We hope these qualities will remain with them and support them as they move to post-primary school.
