Just a brief message to welcome you all back to a new term at Northampton NS and a few important details for settling back in.
Firstly we ran into a longer process than we envisaged in getting our online payments system set up so we are going to be rolling this out during the coming month. In the meantime we can accept cash/cheque payments for book rental etc. but would prefer payment to be made directly to our account using online banking through the following details;
IBAN: IE65 BOFI 9038 6729 5252 49
Branch: Galway – Gort
Sort Code: 90-38-67
A reminder also from our Green Schools committee that we along with all other schools in the area are contributing to the ongoing battle to eliminate single use plastics by using onlyreusable water containers which can be refilled during break times from the mains water sinks in the middle and junior classrooms.
Please remember also that there will be the usual settling in period when it comes to traffic congestion at arrival and departure. School opens to receive children at 9.50am and classes begin at 9am. Arrive in good time and park up the laneway if you wish to enter the school with your child. The two spaces in front of the house on the lane and the accessible parking space may be used for this and I know it sounds harsh but try to be as brief as possible. Anywhere inside the school gates is strictly reserved for drop off only. We all know the stresses of morning routines but with a bit of planning, patience and understanding and as always keeping safety as our top priority through the first few weeks we can make it work.
In the back to school kerfuffle can you kindly keep in mind that we have a Cash for Clobber date coming soon also.
Looking forward to seeing you all again.
