Reminder re Heating/Arts/Crafts Contribution – parents can pay in instalments.  Thanks to all those who have contributed.  Unfortunately with the abolition of the Minor Works Grant by the Department of Education, this has left a deficit of €10,500 to our finances.  The D.E.S. also failed to contribute towards the cost of refurbishment for two classrooms during the summer costing €14,500.
