Dear Parents,
Some important reminders about the next week.

School Mass will be on this Monday 15th June @ 2.00pm – End of School Year Mass via webcam from the Cathedral. All families are invited to join in by going to www, >> Daily Masses >>Ballaghaderreen

Collection of Rental text books on Tuesday & Wednesday 16th & 17th June @ 9.30-3.00pm daily. Rental text books given to your child last September (1st Class to 6th Class) must be returned. Your child’s class teacher recently shared the names of these books with your child.
• Place books in a plastic bag
• Write your child`s name clearly on the bag.
• Do not enter the school as there will be a table outside on which to place the books.
Children who collecting attendance awards have been notified and may enter the school observing social distancing and hygiene regulations.
• All 6th class children can collect their end of year hoodie and graduation cert on either of these 2 days. Thank you to our Parent Association for funding and supplying these gifts. Keep these items for the virtual graduation on 24th June @1.15pm.

Report cards, Booklists 2020/2021 & the provisional School Calendar 2020/2021 will be in the post early next week and will be with you by Friday 19th June.
