The theme for the week is:

“Catholic Schools Week- Faith in Our Community”

 

Each class plan to design a specific “ Sacred Space “ in their class room to celebrate the Catholic Schools Week and to hold a prayer service in their own class

 

Each day has a particular theme as outlined  below:

 

Monday

Faith calls us to live – Design a St Brigid’s Cross

Tuesday

Faith calls us to learn – We share what we learn about God

Wednesday

Faith calls us to share – Grand Parents Day – School Visit

Thursday

Faith calls us to celebrate – Prayer Service celebrating the New Art

Friday

Faith calls us to serve – Senior Classes visit Junior Classes to serve

 

Please encourage your child to participate wholeheartedly in Catholic Schools Week and to talk to you at home about the events in school.

 

Bearing in mind the adage “ the family that prays together – stays together “ Catholic Schools Week is the ideal opportunity for the family to offer a prayer together as a family.

 

Please take the opportunity to visit the Catholic Church, St Luke The Evangelist, during the Catholic Schools Week. Fr Seamus Connell will welcome all with open arms.

 

Le gach deaghuí,

GREEN SCHOOLS

 

Dear parents,

We are trying to make St Luke's more environmentally friendly. We are trying our best to reduce litter and to recycle more. In order to achieve this it is important that:    

  • Every child has a reusable lunch box from today onwards to use everyday.
  • Every child brings home their own rubbish in their lunchbox to be put in the bin at home as this is our school policy. Thanks for your help.

 

We believe it is of great benefit to the children to learn about recycling and reducing waste. We want to make St Luke's a better place for our whole community.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

Róisín Smith (co-ordinator)

I would like to thank all our families for their support during the first term of the school academic year 2013 – 2014.

 

The true spirit of Christmas and the message of Jesus Christ are alive and well in St Luke’s National School. Numerous donations were made by the families in the school to the Philippines Collection held in November & December. In total €484.50 has been donated to a very worthy cause.

 

The Official Opening of St Luke’s National School was a great success. Many thanks to everyone who took part. The lyrics and melody of the School Anthem will be heard in the parish for many years to come.

 

The culmination of the first terms work is the Christmas Concert. It is inspirational to see the children participate so wholeheartedly and perform wonderfully on the concert nights. Your attendance on the night encourages and motivates 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 long term educational experience.

 

I am grateful to the Parents’ Association who have dedicated themselves to the school in so many ways throughout the first term. The Halloween and Christmas celebrations were a great success.

 

School re-opens on Monday 6th January 2014 @ 9.00a.m.
