St. Mochulla's Halloween Witch Walk 2017














































































































































A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Witch Walk. Well done to all our scary witches, ghosts and monsters.







 


Cash for Clobber.

Cash for Clobber will be collected from the school on Tuesday next, October 10th. Bags of clothes may be left in to the school on Thursday and Friday mornings, (ordinary black plastic sacks will do for clothes). Thanks you for your continued support of this valuable fundraising initiative.
 


School Mass and Prayer Service

There will be a prayer service for the children from Junior Infants to 2nd Class and Mass for the children from 3rd to 6th on Thursday October 12th next. Due to the unavailability of the church, these events will have to be held in the halla. While we would love parents to come along to these events, space in our halla is unfortunately at a premium particularly when all the children are there. However if you would like to come along and “squeeze” in, you are more than welcome.
 


School Closure on Tuesday October 24th.

St. Mochulla’s NS will be closed on Tuesday October 24th to facilitate staff training in The New Primary Language Curriculum.
 


Internet Access Permission

Please sign and return the attached Internet Access Permission Form to your class teacher. A copy of St. Mochulla’s Acceptable Use of The Internet Policy can be viewed on the school website.
The internet and the virtual world can greatly benefit our children’s education if used positively. However in this day and age we are all aware of the perils and pitfalls of the online environment. Please speak regularly to your child about the pros and cons of the internet and please continue to monitor their online activity.
 


St. Mochulla’s Parents Association Meet and Greet and AGM

The AGM of St. Mochulla’s Parents Association will be held on Monday October 16th in the halla. The AGM will be preceded by a meet and greet session at 8pm. Please come along and support the great work being done by our Parents Association. 


Witch Walk 2017

We will hold our annual Sponsored Witch Walk again this year on the last day of term, Friday October 27th. Children are invited to dress up in Halloween Costume and together we will walk around the village. Sponsorship cards will be available soon. We will be distributing one sponsorship card per family. There is no need to return this card until after the mid term break. We would appreciate it if it could be returned then.
