PARENT TEACHER MEETINGS

Many thanks to all who attended last week’s Parent/Teacher meetings. These are, of course, a key factor in ensuring that your child’s potential is met and your interest is vital.

HALLOWEEN FUN

Friday promises to be a fun day for all our pupils as a few Halloween treats have been organised. Pupils in P.1 – P.4 are off to the library in Omagh for a special Halloween story telling session. Pupils in P.1 – P.4 are all welcome to come to school in fancy dress costume although we ask you not to go to any expense as this is purely for fun and novelty value.

Meanwhile pupils in P.5 – P.7 are joining pupils from Denamona P.S. and St. Lawrence’s P.S. for a Shared Education outdoor activity day. Further details on this trip will be issued during the week.

CONGRATULATIONS FOOTBALLERS

A big well done to a very youthful school team who attended the St. Conor’s Indoor Gaelic blitz last Wednesday and came home as winners of the ‘shield section’ when defeating Drumlish P.S. 3-2 in a tense final. Well done lads!!

HALLOWEEN BREAK

Parents are reminded that the school is closed from next Monday – Wednesday.
School re-opens as usual next Thursday, 2nd November. We trust that all pupils will have an exciting but safe Halloween break.

HURRICANE OPHELIA

Hurricane Ophelia has come and gone with thankfully no damage to the school building or grounds. The two enforced closures were on the advice of the Department of Education with our apologies for the late notice for Monday’s closure, in particular.

INDOOR GAELIC

Good luck to our footballers who are off to the Station Centre in Omagh to participate in an Indoor Gaelic Competition organised by St. Conors P.S. Although we are sending along a particularly youthful team, hopefully the pupils will give a good account of themselves and enjoy the day.

SCHOOL TROPHIES

Anyone who received a perpetual trophy at last year’s school prize-giving night is asked to return these to the school for display purposes. Please note that this does NOT include ‘Athlete of the Year’ awards.

THURSDAY, 19TH OCT. DINNER

There will be no chips available for tomorrows dinner due to cancellation of deliveries on Monday and Tuesday. The rest of the menu remains the same.

MARY TEAGUE

Mary Teague wishes to express her sincere thanks for all the beautiful gifts, cards and good wishes received on the occasion of her retirement. She appreciates very much all those involved in organising a very memorable retirement function.
