Christmas Notes

Dear parents, a reminder of our Cork Simon Fundraiser (see attached Santa Stamp Envelopes). For 1 euro these stamps are available from class teachers (up to 3rd class) or from the office. It is a nice way to support this local charity for very little. Thank you to those who have purchased the envelopes to date. We hope to send off monies collected in December, in time for Christmas.

Fifth Class Engineering Trip

Fifth Class were recently treated to a fantastic trip to the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy Environmental Research Institute, Beaufort Building, University College Cork which is based in Ringaskiddy. The trip was organised by Steam Education along with their industry partners DePuy Synthes.

We are very grateful to Alice Darcy from Steam Education and Aoife Deane of MaREI for organising this memorable trip and all at De Puy who have been so kind to us over the last year. You really are inspiring the next generation of Engineers here in Shanbally!!
