Tomorrow morning we have a visitor in school, to give a talk on Farm Safety to classes P 1-P 7. Whilst we know not everyone lives on a farm, we do all live in a rural setting with farms and farm land around us and as we tragically know, farms can be very dangerous places. The talk will focus on safety around machinery, animals and slurry pits. Classes will attend in 2 groups: P 1 to P 4 at 9.30 am and P 5 to P 7 at 10.15 am. (Nursery will not be attending)
A reminder for all parents and members of the community you are invited to a free Internet Safety workshop in St Mary’s PS, tomorrow evening Tuesday, 28th November at 7pm.
We hope to see you all there.
Tuesday 28th November,

Once again we would like to invite all Parents / Guardians to this free workshop where you will learn about:
* Internet Browser security*
*”Hot” websites that may cause concern*
Feedback from previous years’ workshops was very positive. Parents attending commented on the practical tips and advice shared by our experts , one parent evaluation read, “Very useful advice and easy to apply”.
So we are strongly recommending all Parents / Guardians to come along Tuesday night. With Tablets, PC’s and mobile phones on many Christmas Lists, knowledge around internet safety is paramount to keeping our children safe. We are confident you will find this workshop very useful and informative.
Following further guidance from the Department of Education to all Principals, St Mary’s PS will remain closed tomorrow Tuesday 17th October.
Please share and circulate to all parents.
