Dear Parent / Guardians and students
As I write this message for the summer newsletter the 1st, 2nd and 5th year students are sitting their summer exams. The state examinations 3rd and 6th year students will begin on 8th June and we wish them well. It is an anxious time for students, parents and teachers. However, once the first day of the exam is over students become a little more relaxed.
We had a wonderful graduation for our 6th year students and while it is sad to see them leave we know that they have exciting times ahead of them. Our colleague and teacher Catherine MacCraith is retiring. We thank her for her loyal and dedicated service and wish her every happiness in her retirement.
2015-16 has been another busy year at Santa Sabina when there was always something happening. You can read about all the events on the school website, school app and the school newsletters. However, I would like to highlight a number of things that have happened.
The Board of Management is currently working on a draft proposal for incorporating the Dominican Convent into the school building. This is a very exciting opportunity and I looking forward to your views on the draft proposal which we intend to launch in early October.
The proposed development by Parsis of the grounds at Santa Sabina will have an impact on the school. The Board of Management have been in contact with Fingal County Council and An Bord Pleanála to raise their concerns about the proposed development and its impact on the health and safety of the school community. We are awaiting their decision.
