In conjunction with Co. Carlow VEC, the school will be hosting two fantastic courses. Thefirst course is all about Holistic Health and the second is Christmas Crafts. They bothlast for 6 weeks and they are open to the community of Carlow and Graiguecullen butwe are offering them to our school's families initially. There are only a limited number of places so please book in as soon as possible. These courses usually cost up to €100each but as part of our programme we can offer them at a token price of €20.
As part of the Schools Completion Programme, theschool has now the opportunity to provide schoollunches to all children in the school. Each day,children can receive a sandwich/wrap, a drink, asnack and a piece of fruit for only €1 per day.Lunches can be ordered the week before for €5 tocover the week. Sinéad from the SCP has been withus for the first few days to see how the schemeworks. If there's any parents who have cateringexperience that would like to help us out any day,we would appreciate it as we start this newprogramme.

It's great that the Junior Infants have settled in so quickly to our school and now they arestaying for their full day of 1:30pm. In order to minimise disruptions (you've probablyheard the volume of our doorbell!) we are opening the school doors at 1:25pm and2:25pm for pick up times. We thank you for your understanding with this.
Our school are hosting a breakfast morning on Wednesday the 5th of October! Comealong and for a small donation you will get a yummy breakfast! Money raised will bedonated to Childline to ensure that every child has a chance to be heard. If any parentswould like to help out on the morning contact Clare Coogan(firstname.lastname@example.org).
Graiguecullen Swimming Pool has secured a regular slot for our school, which is earlier inthe year than previously. Children will now go swimming for 6-8 weeks sometimebetween November and March this year. We will be looking at providing bus transport toand from the pool but this is obviously dependent on costs. More information will begiven at the information evening.
Sport on Wednesday
The VEC has kindly offered us the opportunity to use their sports facilities everyWednesday after the mid term break. The facility includes basketball courts, footballpitch and a large hall. We will be looking into the practicalities of transport shortly and if anyone has any ideas, it would be appreciated.
