Friday next, 6 November, is the last day for bringing in items for the Shoe Box Appeal. We are very thankful for the support given so far for this worthy Christmas charity. A final effort to complete the work by Friday would be appreciated. If you want to find out more about this appeal, click the following link: Shoebox Appeal.
Cork Pops Orchestra
On Monday next, 9 November, all pupils will be taken to a performance of the Cork Pops Orchestra for primary schools in the City Hall. The performance is scheduled to begin at 12 noon.
Pantomime at the Everyman
On Friday 18 December, all classes apart from Junior Infants, will go the Pantomime in the Everyman Theatre.
Rehearsals have started for the School Concert, which takes place in the Hall of the Secondary School on the evening of Thursday 3 December. Families are invited to attend and admission is free.
The Junior Infants will perform a Nativity Play on the last day of term (instead of on 18 December as originally planned). This performance will take place in the Secondary School Hall on Tuesday 22 December at 11.00pm. All Preparatory School pupils will attend, and parents and families are welcome to come along too. The play will finish at approximately 12 noon. Pupils will then return to class and may be collected shortly afterwards as there will be early closing (as on Wednesdays) on that day.
Texting has been set up and is being used to remind parents of upcoming events.
The boys of the Prep School were delighted to welcome Corkwoman Lisa Cummins to the school on Monday last. Lisa has been in the news for her incredible feat of will and endurance: swimming across the English Channel and turning round immediately and swimming back again. It took her 36 hours. She is now in a group of only twenty who can claim this achievement.
