Agreed Minutes from the Board of Management Meeting 25-09-2013:

Ø  The Board of Management wish to formally thank our Parent’s Association and particularly the Piper Family for organising the “Day at the Merries”.  It was a tremendous success as well as a fantastic representation of all the best qualities of our entire school community.
Ø  Crosshaven RFC were thanked as at short notice they changed their ‘open day’ so that it would not clash with our merries fundraiser.  This gesture was deeply appreciated.
Ø  The school budget for the coming academic year was discussed and once more it was agreed  that our finances will take careful management.  It is hoped that schools will not face any further cuts in this month’s budget.
Ø  The members want to thank our cleaning staff and caretaker for their dedicaton over the summer months.  Our school must be one of the most presentable in the county.  Noel and Jerry who look after the church and convent also help at various times.  Their work is often unseen however it is genuinely appreciated.
Ø  The board received a report from our School Principal that local traffic measures are working well  at present.  Everyone deserves great credit for this as well as hoping this will continue for the rest of the year.

Playground Fundraising Raffle  

Over the next few days we are are hoping to sell €2 raffle tickets here in school for a fantastic hamper which has been so generously donated to us.   Please support this if you can, with all money raised going to the local “Playground Fundraising Appeal”.  There is a picture of the hamper on our website.

Trip to Dublin last Sunday: 
I want to thank all my teaching staff who gave up their day to take over 90 children to Croke Park last Sunday.  This type of dedication to our school is typical of what I see everyday and I for one deeply appreciate it.  The children’s behaviour was exceptional last Sunday and they were a credit to both our community and their families.  Finally  congratulations to Ms. Murphy!  Her achievements are almost unparalled in sport and she is a tremendous role model for all 191 pupils of our school.
