26th June 2020
As we come to the end of the school year, I would like to thank you, our parents for all the support you have shown to the school this year. I wish you and your families a safe and happy summer.
I would like to bring the following important information to your attention.
The 6th Class Graduation will take place on Monday 6th July at 2pm in the school grounds.
This summer Tynock National School will receive funding from the Department of Education to host a free summer camp for 36 students in our school. The camp ‘Re-engagement with schools Summer Camp 2020’ will run at a ratio of 1 teacher to 12 pupils and will take place from Monday 17th August – Friday 21st August. The camp will feature a fun week of literacy, numeracy, aistear, music, art, drama and PE.
Unfortunately, not all pupils will be able to attend. If your child/children will be away that week or you don’t wish for your child to attend please contact me as soon as possible. A lottery system may have to be used to allocate some places to pupils.
