Christmas Note

                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                               
 
Dear Parent(s),
 
St. Vincent de Paul – WLR Christmas Appeal – On Friday 16th December we are holding a "WEAR RED TO SCHOOL DAY".  This is a countywide event and buckets will be available for donations on the day.
 
Christmas Nativity
A Christmas Nativity will be held in the Church on Monday 19th December at 10.00 a.m.  All are welcome to attend.
 
Christmas Cards
We request that children do not exchange Christmas cards with each other in school.
 
Annual Christmas Raffle.
We are mindful that there has been huge financial demands placed on you recently and as a result we are not holding our Annual Raffle until Easter 2017.
 
Christmas Holidays
The school will close for Christmas Holidays on Thursday 22nd December at 12.30 p.m. and will re-open on Monday 9th January 2017.  
 
School Website
We would encourage parents to please keep checking the 'Calendar' tab on school website – Rathgormackns.com, for any updates on times/dates of forthcoming events.
 
The teachers and staff of Rathgormack N.S. would like to say that while Christmas presents are very thoughtful we do not expect them.  However, if your child/children would really like to give a present please remember it is not the cost of the present but the thought that counts (e.g. something home-made).
 
We would like to wish all our pupils, their families and staff a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
 
                                             
 
Thanking you,
 
 
Catherine Power
Principal.
