We would like to invite parents to attend our annual Family Appreciation Day tomorrow!
The BBQ will kick off at 12.30pm in the courtyard (weather permitting!!). 1st-6th classes will be brought down with their class teacher to eat some food and have some fun and they will then return to their classes as normal. Junior and Senior Infant classes will be released to their parents at 13.10pm as usual and parents are then asked to bring them along to the BBQ. Everyone will receive a ticket that they can exchange for their BBQ treat! Parents can attend the event from 12.30pm and are invited to bring along any salad accompaniments they would like to share with each other.
Please ensure you let your class teacher know (if they don't already) if there are specific foods your child is not permitted to eat during this event. There will be music, dancing and playground games so there will be lots of fun alongside the food so everyone should have a lovely afternoon. We look forward to seeing you there to celebrate all our fantastic families following another amazing year in P.E.T.N.S.!
All parents are welcome to school on Friday for Intercultural Day. All classes have studied a different country and will be presenting their projects on Friday.
Well done to all of Rowan class who ran at Santry today. All the runners put in such a great effort in the individual sprints and relays.
Well done particularly to the U14 girls' relay team (Daniela, Eunice, Candy and Lea) who qualified for the final and narrowly missed out on a medal spot in a very fast final race.
Well done also to Eunice and Kelvin who both qualified for the finals in their agegroups. And massive congratulations to Kelvin who won a Silver Medal in the boys' U14 final.

During Intercultural May, we are planning to have a Powerstown World Music radio where songs from different countries will be played throughout the school.

Alternatively, you can hand your written request into the office. We would appreciate your cooperation in ensuring that all lyrics are appropriate for our pupils.
