Parents: Please Click Here & “Stand Up for Primary Education”

October 5th, 2015 by Mr. Stuart

INTO stand-up-for-primary-education 2015 imageParents and Guardians,

with the Budget coming up and the election sometime soon, the INTO (Teachers’ Union) has asked that we ask you to contact the local TDs to ask them to place a greater priority on primary schools.

And so I am asking you to click on this link (www.standupprimary.ie).

There you can easily and quickly “Email your local TDs now.” The emails are already prepared for you; you can send them as they are, or you can change them as you see fit.

Thank you!

Martin Stuart, current INTO Staff Representative at Scoil Talbot

INTO stand-up-for-primary Bus Image 2015

Extra: The demands can be summed up as follows:

  1. reduce class sizes to the E.U. average (the INTO researched this and found “Irish class sizes are the highest in the Eurozone”);
  2. fund primary schools the same as secondary schools (currently secondary schools receive almost exactly twice as much funding per pupil as primary schools)
  3. build a better management structure for primary schools (because of a ban on promotion many programs around the country can’t be delivered for children with special needs, for literacy, for ICT, and more).

Friendship Fortnight 14th- 25th September

September 10th, 2015 by Mr. Stuart

Talbot’s Friendship Fortnight begins this Monday 14th September. During this fortnight, we encourage you all to make an extra effort to be a good friend, by including someone, by sharing, by caring, by being kind, by lending a hand and by looking out for others.

In class you will discuss how Talbot is an Anti-bullying School  and you will learn about our Ten Shield Statements.

To celebrate friendship, Talbot Senior is running an Online Poetry Competition, closing date September 25th. All you need to do to enter is compose a short poem and post it in the comment space below.

The title of your poem is “Friendship.”

If you are one of the winners, we will announce your name our October assembly and present you with your prize!

Take A Stand -- Lend A Hand!

Important Note About the Concert

June 16th, 2015 by Mr. Stuart and tagged

Summer Fun (for programme)Hello all parents and guardians,

Please read this carefully (Or you can click here for this note in PDF). Thank you, Martin Stuart, Concert Coordinator (Tue 16th June)

  1. Timing – Due to time for make-up and class organisation, children for scene 1 (Castle) and scene 3 (The Lion King) are to arrive by 6.45, scene 2 (Frozen) by 7.00, scene 4 (Shrek) and scene 5 (Harry Potter) by 7.10, and scenes 6 (The Market) and 7 (The Wedding) by 7.15. The main characters in the play are to arrive by 6.30. The concert begins at 7.30.
  2. Snacks – On the night, your child will receive a bottle of water and a snack for free, thanks to Glanmore Foods.
  3. Shoes and Hair – Children are to wear light runners, not heavy shoes. Children with long hair are to have their hair off their face.
  4. Entrance Used on the Night – Natasha and Jenny will be welcoming you in to the hall through the entrance at the Teachers’ Car Park.
  5. Interval and Raffle – There will be a 10-minute interval after scene 4 when there’ll be a raffle with lots of prizes, organised by the Parents Association. Tickets are priced €2 for a strip of 5 tickets, and 3 strips for a fiver.
  6. Collecting Your Child – After the whole concert is over one parent/guardian per child will go through “the teachers’ entrance.” No‑one is allowed at any time to go through the busy backstage area (blue curtains). And then the parent/guardian will collect their child from the child’s teacher in the child’s classroom. And then head home hopefully happy and proud through the main gates which will be open then.
  7. DVDs – Two films of the Concert are being professionally recorded, one for each night. They act forever as great memories of a very special time in your child’s life. Each class will be busy on stage for about 10 minutes, acting, singing, and dancing. To ensure the best possible quality we are organising professionals to do the Sound and the Lights on the two nights. You can order a DVD for €20 of the night your child was in. You can do that on the night of the Concert; or you can do that in school. The DVDs will be delivered to the school on Friday 26th June and given to your child.
