Board of Management Elections:  Congratulations to Fiona Norris and Eoin O’Farrell who have been elected as parents nominees to the Board of Management which will commence on December 1st.


A Whole School Evaluation (WSE):  This will take place in Gusserane NS on Wednesday the 27th and Thursday the 28th of November led by Mr. John Mescal School Inspector.  The WSE will look at all aspects of life and learning in the Gusserane Community.  As part of this Mr. Mescal would like you to fill out a questionnaire and return it to the school no later than Monday the 25th of November (please check your child’s school bag for this survey).  We thank you in advance for your co-operation in this matter.  The last time a WSE took place in Gusserane NS was in 2006 and there has been a lot of changes in the school community since then as we have expanded, developed and grown.


Sing Out Loud: The Sing Out Loud concert took place on Thursday evening last the 14th of November in the National Concert Hall, Wexford.  The children from 3rd to 6th class did a wonderful job and sang their hearts out to a full house.  This was a wonderful experience for all the school community.


Rackard League:  The Girls County Final Roinn A took place on Friday evening last the 15th of November in St. Patrick’s park, Enniscorthy.  Congratulations to the Tintern Girls football team on a fantastic year.  They qualified for the Roinn A County Final playing a terrific brand of attacking spirited football.  Unfortunately, they came up against a Kilrush team who were just too strong for them on the night.  The girls never gave up and were very unlucky with a couple of chances.  Well done to all the girls, especially those from Gusserane NS - Leah Kent, Ella King, Evelyn McCormack, Kyra Molloy, Lucy Power, Eva Kent, Holly O’Loughlin, Romy Belton, Alex Whitty, Brooke Whitty, Cathy Dillon and to their trainer our very own Ms. Foxe.
