The PTP held a coffee morning in the Rugby club on Friday the 15th of February. As always, this is a great way for parents to meet other parents, catch up on school news and have a chat. It was great to see so many parents there. We plan on holding another one towards the end of term and hope to see lots of old and new faces.
We are delighted to be able to inform you that we were the Overall Winner in today's Greystones St. Patrick's Day Parade.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the children and their parents who came along and participated.
None of this would have been possible without the massive effort put in by the arts committee. They cut, stuck, sewed and created for the last few weeks and the end result was fantastic! Thank you all so very much.

We are delighted to advise that the Table Quiz managed to raise €5,614 which is absolutely fantastic!!
We would like to thank all those who supported the quiz, helped get prizes, bought raffle tickets, participated in the Silent Auction, attended and helped out on the night.
Big shout out as well to the Parkview Hotel for letting us host it free of charge and looking after us so well on the night.
It was a great event, very successful and so much fun and we are already looking forward to the 2019 one!

Greystones CNS has been collecting Christmas shoeboxes for the Peter McVerry Trust - a charity that tackles the issue of homelessness in Ireland. The trust has made a video with some of the GCNS first class students who explain what they put in the boxes and their thoughts on how to stop homelessness.
You can see the video here (opens a new page).
More information about the trust and the amazing work they do can be found at https://www.pmvtrust.ie/
The Halloween disco was a massive success. It was a great event for the kids, but also a great fundraising success as we managed to raise €794.35 for our school!
