We are lucky to have a beautiful school garden complete with polytunnel for the children to visit and do some planting activities in their individual class plots. Our school garden is the envy of other schools thanks to Brigid Judge and her team of Volunteers for giving of their time and energy. The children really enjoy having their own class plots and engaging in seasonal planting activities. It is a very positive outdoors activity which also promotes wellbeing among children and adults. If you have an interest in gardening or have some free time to come in and help with planting and maintenance of our school garden, we would love you to get involved! Please contact Martina in the school office and she will put you in touch with the School Garden Committee.
The dates have now been agreed for the Parent/Teacher meetings which will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 19th and 20th of November outside of school hours.

Your child’s class teacher will be in contact with you shortly in order to arrange an appointment after school on either Tuesday 19th or Wednesday 20th November in which to meet to discuss your child’s progress in school

This would not have been possible without the help of the many parents who provided supervision of teams and support on the day. Big thank you to our athletics coach Ms. Malone who put in all the hard work in Valleymount today and to the class teachers for preparing them for their trials. It has been a fantastic week of sporting achievements for our school and we are very proud of all our pupils and staff who give up their time to promote sports/supervise and coach teams.
