Dear Parents,

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

Sixth Class Graduation

We had graduation on Wednesday 26th June 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.

Class requisites for next year 

As you are aware from last year there is no charge/fee on books and copies to parents. Each class has a list of requisites for which there is a charge. We have agreed with the Parents Association  that the school would purchase these items in bulk to reduce costs etc. A requisites fee will appear on Aladdin later today for those who wish to get it paid now .

School Calendar

The return date for the beginning of the next school year will be Thursday 29th August. The calendar for the school year has been published in the calendar area of our website. School will close on this Friday 28th June @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.

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.

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 29th  August. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy a lovely summer break.
