It’s almost time. Just a few days left until Scoil Bhride Christmas panto “Camelot” and we are looking forward to seeing at the shows on the 7th and 8th Dec.
6th Class are sure to put on a fantastic show and the best way to support them is to make sure we have a full house at each show. So make sure you call into the school and get your tickets.
RAFFLE PRIZES and TICKET SALES we have over €1500 worth of fantastic prizes for some lucky parents and children to win.
Raffle tickets can be bought at each Panto show
Can’t make the shows, don’t worry, you can still be in with a chance to win. 6th Class will be selling the tickets and calling into the classrooms each day this week. Please send your money in with your children and we will record your name on the ticket stub and give your tickets to your child.
Tickets are priced €5 for 3 strips or €2 for 1 strip.
We are still in need of a few donations and your time, so please look through the list and support us in any way you can:
Your time – volunteers to help out at the shows:
If you have a couple of hours to spare over the weekend the parents council would be delighted to have your help with setting up the stalls and helping out serving refreshments. We have three shows to cover so any of your valuable time would be much appreciated however big or small. If you are available on the 7th or 8th Dec please contact Claire at 0851468500
Clear out your treat presses and bring in your sweet jars. These proved so popular with children, young and old ,last year that we almost ran out. We can’t have enough of these donations.
If you have any donations of prizes, food or drinks for the raffle they can be dropped into the school.
If you have a hamper basket that you are not using please drop into the school – these are used to make up the raffle hampers
The parents council are very thankful of the donations that have come in so far.
Don’t forget to get your tickets for the show and the raffle and hope everyone has a great night.
St Peter’s, Dunboyne – revised enrolment policy *****
A further meeting will be held for all parents at 8pm in the School Hall tonight. There was a very strong attendance at the last meeting which reflects the level of concern within our school community about this issue. In order to build on the work already initiated by parents, and to move forward with a unified voice, we hope to see another strong turn out tonight. We appreciate that this has been organized at short notice, but feel we need to progress as quickly as possible.
Its that time of year when we require you help! On the 7th and 8th December the school is staging the pantomime ‘Camelot’. The Parents council will be running a few fundraising stalls at this event.
Sweet Jars/ Bags: This has been a very popular stall and a chance to buy some refreshments for the show. We would like to ask each child to bring in one decorated Sweet Jar or Sweet Bag with a selection of sweets. We will be collecting the jars from next week until the 30th November. This is a great opportunity to get rid of unwanted sweets from Halloween!!
Raffle Prizes: We would welcome any donations or prizes which we could use for our raffle. Please leave these with Bernie in the school office.

Book Fair 2017 21st – 28th November 2017
Reading is one of the most important skills our children can learn. Set your child up for reading success by visiting our Scholastic Book Fair and growing your child’s personal reading library. By shopping at our school Book Fair, you will not only be giving your own child access to great new books to read wherever they go, but you will also be helping our school raise money to buy more books for your child’s class library. There will be a selection of books available to appeal to all reading abilities and all classes.
For every €1 you spend on books during the Book Fair, the school will receive 60c back in books! For example for every €100 spent, the school will receive €60 worth of books!!
The Parents’ Council have supported this initiative for a number of years as we feel it is a great opportunity to encourage children to enjoy books both at home and in school. Our children will also benefit through the addition of a world of new books to their class library!
