METNS PARENTS INVITED!!
Developing a METNS Ethos Action Plan
As a result of the survey and discussions held last year to examine issues related to the ethos of our school, a number of themes have been identified that we now need to discuss and develop plans and strategies around. This is something that the whole school needs to be involved in, so the Board of Management is organizing a presentation and workshop in the school at 7.45pm (sharp) Wednesday 28th May for parents and staff to discuss these important issues and to develop a plan.
Also, a key wish expressed at that time by both parents and staff was a desire to have more opportunities to meet up to discuss and share ideas. So, this is also in response to this request. We need your ideas, suggestions and opinions so please come along and help shape the ethos of our school!

Newpark Comprehensive School “Buy a Brick” Campaign
As many of you may be aware Newpark Comprehensive School will soon be getting a new school building. This is great news for our children and future generations of children. Unfortunately, the Department of Education and Science funding does not fully cover the fitting out of the building and facilities. We therefore need to raise a minimum of 35K to fit out the labs, canteen etc. Our biggest fundraising event is the “Buy a Brick” campaign. We are appealing for additional support from MET parents as many of your children will benefit from the new build in the future. Our aim is to make Newpark School a centre of excellence in education.
Full details of the campaign are available at newparkschool.ie/fundraising
We hope you will be able to support this campaign and thank you in anticipation.
