Dear Parents,

There are some important notices which I would like to bring to your attention.

Féilire na Scoile:

School will close for the holidays tomorrow, Tuesday 27th @12.30p.m. The usual arrangements will apply with juniors and seniors leaving at 12p.m with their brothers and sisters and the remaining children at 12.30p.m.

Rang a Sé ag Fágáil:

We had graduation on today Friday last where we celebrated the end of the year for our 6th class. I would like to compliment them on their achievements during the course of this year and others, in many different spheres of school life.

Our thanks to Ms. Greene for organising the graduation and to the Parents Association for organising the refreshments.

The staff and I would like to wish them the best of luck on their onward journey. With sixth class departing we are also losing some parents. A special thank you to them for their support and involvement in school life over the duration of their child’s education here in Emo.


Parents Association Notices

The Cake and Book sale was held on Friday 26th of May and the Treasurer confirmed that €1,215 was raised on the day.

Due to the generosity of our Parents Association we have had Speech and Language therapist Sarah Gorman working in the school during the last term. She has assessed pupils, met with parents and provided suitable individual programmes for the children.



Focal Buíochas

We are very grateful for the help and support of so many parents in our school. This has long been a hallmark of Emo National School. A special word of thanks to the Parents’ Association and Board of Management of the school who do tremendous work in the background.

Míle buíochas to our teachers and ancillary staff in the school for all their dedication, help and support over the year.

Finally, on behalf of everybody in Emo NS, may I take this opportunity to say well done to all our pupils. They should be very proud of the work that they have done this year. We look forward to meeting you on the 31st August. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy a lovely summer break.
