It’s that time of year again when we are launching the Christmas Shoebox Appeal. The closing date for the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal is November 4th 2019. Please give your completed shoebox to your child’s teacher on or before that date. The children should have received the leaflets with all the information. Please find attached a poster of ideas of what to include and what to avoid. You will find lots of information about what to include and where the shoeboxes go on www.teamhope.ie. Thank you to everybody who has supported this worthwhile cause in the past. Last year we sent away 164 shoeboxes and we’re aiming even higher this year!

A big congratulations also to the school basketball team on their success in the Annual Tallaght Garda Basketball Tournament in the Basketball Arena.  They made it to the Semi Final which takes place this afternoon and we wish them all the best.  Well done to all the children involved and to their teachers Ms. Thornton and Ms. Morgan.

Athletics:  Well done to all the boys and girls who participated in athletics this year.  The children brought home medals from Corkagh Park and from Santry.  They were involved in Cross Country, Hurdles,  Long Jump, Shot Putt and various other races.   The boys and girls did the school proud and we hope to continue on with this success for years to come.
