Tesco for Schools & Clubs
We are collecting the tesco vouchers again this year. We did really well last year. If you have any please bring them in & we will be able to get some equipment for the centre. Thank You!

Pyjama Day
The NCNA National Pyjama day will take place on Friday 25th March. This year all monies raised will go to The Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) ‘Hospice Homecare for Children’ programme.
To raise some money we would ask that whoever wears there pyjamas in pay €3 and the children will get a sponsorship card to raise money for wearing their pyjamas on the day. Maybe the staff will wear their pyjamas too!!
We will all have a great day!

We are closed on the 17th March for St. Patrick’s Day.

Montessori Sessional – children will be off 17th & 18th March.
Also a reminder that the sessional class starts at 9am & finishes at 12pm.

Pancake Tuesday will be on the 8th March. Sessional children do not have to bring in lunch this day if they do not want to. Cathy will be busy making lots of pancakes for everyone!

Easter Egg Raffle
There is a large Easter egg (from the Chocolate Warehouse) for raffle in aid of Threshold (National Housing Charity). It is €2 per line. If you wish to buy a line please ask a member of staff or leave your money in the baby room with Amy. The egg is in the baby room if you wish to have a look!

It’s that time of year again when the sun is coming out & it is getting warmer. We would ask all parents to bring in suncream over the next few weeks so we have it here. Children are not allowed outside during the hot weather without suncream on. We would ask that you bring in factor 30 and over. Thank you!

New Food
Over the next few weeks Cathy is going to try a new snack and a new dinner.

The snack will be warmed wraps with tuna, sweetcorn & mayonnaise.
The dinner will be chilli con carne served with rice.

If there is any problems with your child having these foods please let us know.
We will let you know how it goes!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day
