As a new school year begins can I just say how happy all the staff is to see our children back, safe and happy. It is always an exciting and sometimes anxious time for our children as they settle down into a new class with a new teacher and or SNA.
Your child will have great expectations for what will happen this year. Your child’s teacher and SNA will have great expectations for your child. You will have great expectations for seeing your child- happy, growing , developing maturing and making new friends.
Please be assured that every single person in St. Joseph’s from the Board of Management to our office staff, to our lunch ladies, caretaker, SNA’s and teachers will be doing their very, very, best to help your child along his/her new learning journey.
As ever, our doors are always open to discuss any concerns or worries. The Aladdin App is a critical connection with the school. Please call to Lisa if you are not connected.
Following many requests from parents last year ,the much reduced book bills can be paid by card this year.
Just a gentle reminder- school gates open at 8.45 for class to begin at 8.50am. Good habits on punctuality are so important for children to learn in primary school. Please encourage yourr child to be on time for school .
Finally, God bless you all and thank you for trusting your child into our safekeeping. We will cherish them like they were our own.
