December 2004

Sponsored Jog

Thanks very much to all who contributed to the Sponsored Jog. The amount collected was €11,668.09.

Post Primary Transfer

The post-primary schools in Swords operate different enrolment procedures. With regard to Fingal Community and St Finian’s Community College, applications are made during September of 6th Class. Coláiste Choilm operates a waiting list system so it is important for parents to make application as soon as possible, irrespective of a boy’s present class.

Parent Teacher Meetings

Thanks very much to all parents for their courtesy and co-operation. This is the first year of the new arrangements, and feedback with regard to the suitability of times (during the day or evening) would be appreciated so that this information  can be factored into next year’s arrangements.
