1. Ice Skating: The annual TY trip Ice Skating will take place tomorrow Wednesday 19th December. There are a couple of changes to the times outlined in last week’s APP message. Students are to be in school at 9.00 am for their Christmas Assembly. Following this the entire Year Group will get the LUAS to Dundrum for their session on the ice. Students may make their own way home once the Ice skating is over (approximately 2.00 pm). It is a special day for Transition Years marking the end of the first half of the year. Students will be allowed to wear ‘civvies’ and are encouraged to uphold the long held tradition of dressing with a Christmassy theme! 2. THANK YOU! A huge well done to the many Transition Years who have given so generously of their time in the last few weeks. Helping out at events like the School Christmas Fair, bag packs for the Rathmines Senior Citizens, St. Vincent de Paul and Down Syndrome Ireland and of course last Thursday evening’s Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party. Without your kindness and support these events simply could not happen. Your time and help are both very much appreciated. Finally….. Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to all. We look forward to a positive 2019 as you continue your personal journeys of discovery and development.
