We would like to thank her for all her help on the committee. Natalie McGovern has kindly offered to take on the role of Treasurer. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our PA and our parent body for all their hard work and support to the school. We look forward to the upcoming Halloween Party.

                        Helping our Children with Maths          

Sorcha Moran from the Education Training Board recently contacted our school to see if we would be interested in running a course for parents on supporting your children in Maths in the Primary School. She needs a minimum of 7 parents to run the course. It would take place after Christmas on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening in the school.  Please fill out the form below so we can get an idea of possible numbers.

She also runs a weekly course in Carrowbeg College, Westport on Thursday mornings from 11.00-1.00pm. If you are interested in joining her group please contact her on 087-6977615.
