Come along and support our Mr Conlon for our school, and so many others you’ll know, Mr Dolan, James Glancy, Stuart Gilbride Jones, Enda Hughes, Barry Loughlin, Mary McLoughlin, Clive Beattie, and siblings past and present.  The programme begins promptly at 7.30 pm.  Doors open at 7.00 pm  Entry is €10.  A valuable fund raiser for the club towards the development of their new pitch.

Tennis. All of our children enjoyed a taster session here in the school last week (see this week’s Observer). Children’s lessons start this Sunday in the Tennis Club if anyone is interested in learning more.

Sligo Feis Ceoil. The school will be preparing art and poetry for all the children. They will learn the poems they need in school, however it is up to the parents to enter their own child if they are interested in performing. Contact 0879602866 for details.

The Junior Chess Championships take place in the Clayton Sligo this year for the first time on the 7-9 April. A great chance to have your child try chess at a national level. Our chess standards are good enough to be competitive. It would be great to see some U8 and U10 entries from the school. Contact Colm 0870917395
