The Board is delighted that the school has been added to the pilot scheme for the Department of Social Protection Hot School Meals programme. The school is tendering for a supplier at the moment, and the scheme is due to be in place for the last term of this year.
Board members expressed their thanks to school staff who are going to be trained to facilitate Rainbows groups. This is a voluntary programme which provides support to children who have experienced bereavement or separation.
Board Members welcomed the news that flood alleviation works are due to commence in Tymon Park in the coming weeks. The OPW are managing this project. There will be some disruption to school programmes, as direct access to our Forest School site will be closed off. The route of the Walking Bus from Tymon carpark may also be impacted. As part of the works, a wetland habitat is being constructed close to the Riverview entrance, which will be a great resource for the school when it is completed.
Board members also express their thanks to the PTA for organising a table quiz planned to take place in the Cherry Tree on February 22nd.
