Unfortunately, the Dublin Bus double-deckers, which we were able to avail of for previous finals in Croke Park, aren’t available to us for Monday. This means we have to pay for our transport to and from Croke Park and, as you can well imagine, this is a very expensive outlay. In order to keep this cost some bit manageable, we are hiring a coach and a private double decker. Because we are restricted by this, we won’t be able to automatically bring as many girls as we had previously hoped to do. The team and most of the girls from 5th and 6th will travel on the coach and will leave at 9am. The double decker will leave shortly afterwards. This will take the remaining girls from 5th and 6th, as well as the girls from 4th and any adults who need transport to the game. Because we are under such pressure for transport, we cannot now take all of 2nd and 3rd Classes to the game. If, however, you are a parent of a girl in 2nd or 3rd Class and would like to take your daughter along, we should be able to accommodate you. In order to defray some of the cost of transport on the day, we also need to ask that all girls (except of course the panel!) and adults travelling on the buses pay €3 each. This will be collected when you’re on the bus. It’s unfortunate that the game is so soon after we go back, but we need to focus now on cheering the girls on! Remember, too, that our colours are the same as the Irish flag, so any flags or other St. Patrick’s Day paraphernalia should come in handy to support the girls, Ms. McCaw and Mr McMenamin!! There are still some adult tickets available for the match and these can be got for €5 each, first thing Monday morning…
Thank you to those who were able to attend the 6th Class Parent Meeting this morning. For those of you who couldn’t make it, or for anyone who wishes to look at the content again, I am uploading the presentation for you to see.

After a few glitches with the website in recent times, we’re back up and running again!!
If you didn’t get to collect your daughter’s new school jumper in June, you can get them at Grants Uniforms at Number 7, Manor Street..
This link should, hopefully, help you find them..
School Tracksuits: Next Tuesday morning, June 24th from 8.30am..
School Jumpers: Next Thursday morning, June 26th, from 8.30am, also..
On Monday (for tracksuits) and Wednesday next (for jumpers), reminder notes will be sent home with the girls who are in school, at present, to help you remember what you ordered last month. The cost will also be included on the notes. In the younger classes, in particular, you may want to collect the items yourselves. In the older classes, if you wish, you can send the money in with the girls and they can collect their own items in the hall, when all parents have finished collecting theirs. In this case, their names will be put on them before they return to their classes to avoid any mix-ups. Unfortunately, however, we won’t be able to accept responsibility for any money that they might misplace, so it might be a good idea to put money in an envelope with their names on them, before coming to school.
This year, it is just our own school in the hall, so it should run smoothly and we thank Debby and Christine, in advance, for their help in all of this! Thank you!
