NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2013
Alma Jennings (SNA) & Barry Bree (Caretaker) are finishing up – unfortunately Alma’s post was suppressed by the SENO and Barry secured a full time position as caretaker in a Secondary School. We thank them both for their work and dedication at St. John’s N.S. We wish them all the best in the future. The school will now be cleaned on a daily basis by contract cleaners. Barry will continue to do any external/ maintenance work outside of school hours.

Our Open/Enrolment day was a great success and enrolments are still continuing. Thanks also to the Parents Association for providing light refreshments.
PUNCTUALITY – A reminder that school starts at 9.20am and that all pupils should line up when the bell rings. Arriving late on a regular basis is an extremely bad habit for any pupil. They are also losing out on valuable teaching time.
CHRISTMAS RAFFLE – Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Raffle. We raised a total of €3,434 for the school.
The Photographer will be in the school on Thursday 18th of April. Please ensure all pupils wear full uniform on the day.
Congratulations to the following children who won prizes in the Coolera Panto Colouring Competition:
