School Disco – The Parents & Friends’ Association will be hosting an ‘Easter Disco’ on Saturday 23rd March from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. Parents can stop and drop children off after the doors open.  Children will be supervised; therefore, parents do not have to stay unless they so wish.  We would recommend that parents of P1/P2 pupils stay on the premises.  All children will receive drinks and treats during the disco.  This event is ticket only; tickets are on sale at the office at a cost of £3 from Tuesday 19th March.
