METNS Movie Night
As excitement builds for our 1st METNS Movie Night, we would like to confirm the following for Friday night. Doors open 6.30pm with movies starting 6.45pm. There is a large uptake so please be patient on the evening. A goodie bag will be given to each child – No other food/snacks will be permitted on the night.
Each child must have an adult responsible for them on the night. All parents (or a parent representing multiple children) must bring the child/ren into the school and ‘check them in’ for the film at the particular classroom – same on departure. Children cannot leave the classroom until a parent collects them.
Tea & coffee will be served in the hall for all parents staying for the duration. We would like to thank all those that have offered their help on the evening.
See you there! Your PTA

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.
