Stranger Danger
(278) Monday, October 20, 2015

Please discuss the following with your child.

  • That a stranger is anyone they don't know

  • That most strangers are nice people

  • Never to go anywhere with a stranger or take anything from a stranger.


Discuss with your child the meaning of the word 'stranger'. It's important to stress that most strangers are nice people and that we sometimes rely on strangers in times of trouble but that, at the same time, there are rules children should always use with strangers.

Ask your child what he or she would do in different situations with strangers, such as if a stranger asks your child for directions or offers your child a lift. Stress that it's not rude to refuse to talk to strangers if your child feels unsafe. Discuss with your child the general rules: say 'No' - get away and tell.

School Notes 24/3/2015
(259) Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Another term is drawing to a close and Easter is upon us. The children are truly excited and looking forward to the celebration of Easter and all it entails.

 

To celebrate Easter, Fr Seamus Connell invites you and your family to join him at the Easter Ceremonies, in St Luke the Evangelist Church, during Holy Week.

 

The Solemn Celebration of the Lord’s Passion begins with the outdoor stations of the cross on Good Friday 3rd April. It would be wonderful for the parish community to support this new approach to the celebration.

 

On Easter Sunday, 5th April, Mass will be celebrated @ 11.00a.m. in St Luke’s National School. All are welcome. Further details on Easter Ceremonies will be issued as they become available.

 

I would like to thank all our families for their support over the second term of the school year.

 

The high percentage attendance of parents at the Parent /Teacher meetings set a solid foundation for the continuation of a successful school year. In addition punctuality of pupils has improved magnificently. Congratulations to all concerned for their efforts.

 

Please review the school website – it is regularly revamped. A Notice board is available on the new school website, outlining upcoming events – photographs and videos recount the progress that is taking place on a day to day basis. Links on the school website to “Vimeo” and “Flickr” display school videos and photographs respectively. Please review these with your children.

 

Confirmation & First Holy Communion take place after Easter. Once again the teachers are working wonders in their preparation of the children.

 

However, it is your day to day support of the teaching staff that ensures a strong partnership in education and assists in providing the children with a meaningful and worth while educational experience.

 

I am grateful to the Parents’ Association who have dedicated themselves to the school in so many ways throughout the second term. Thank you for all you do for our pupils.

 

Please recall those who are needier than ourselves and give generously to the Trócaire Lenten Campaign. The Trócaire boxes are to be returned after the Easter Holidays to the class teacher in school. This year, with a little luck and your continued generosity, hopefully over €1000 will be raised breaking the school record to date.

 

School re-opens on Monday 13thApril 2015 @ 9.00a.m.

 

Casca Shona agus Beannachtaí na Féile oraibh go léir,
