Newsletter – 27th January 2016

New Website

After much preparation, our new website went live over the last weekend. We are very excited at the new possibilities it opens up for us. We find it more user friendly than the previous version. Many thanks to Mark for all the hard work he has put in to the design of the site and for ironing out any glitches!


We are now active on twitter. We regularly post updates on school events and activities. You can follow us @TETNSnews.

Junior Infants 2016

Places for Junior Infants for September 2016 are still available. Further details may be had from the office or by phoning the office on (01) 827 2172.

Time Keeping

We are very happy to report that timekeeping in the mornings has improved very significantly. Thanks to everyone for their cooperation with this!


School tracksuits are available from the office for €25 each. We believe this represents very good value for money.

Parent/Teacher Association

Starting from next Tuesday, 2nd February, our PTA will host a monthly coffee morning for parents in the staffroom. All parents are welcome. Details of further coffee mornings will be posted on the calendar on the website.

Credit Union Quiz

The Community Credit Union Quiz will take place on Monday next in Peregrines. Our teams are looking forward to the occasion and the chance to show off their general knowledge!

Historian Visit

On Tuesday next the historian Michael Moylan will be visiting the school to speak to the 5th and 6th classes.

Fit Friday

Fit Friday is up and running again and all are enjoying the dance in the yard before school. Parents are more than welcome to join in!

Healthy Lunches

We are promoting healthy lunches in the school. The Wheel of Fruitune is very popular at our weekly assemblies. Children gain points for bringing fruit in their lunchboxes. Watch twitter over the next few days to see our photos of healthy lunches!
