Annual Consent Policy

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Re:  Activities during the school year

During the course of the school year, all classes undertake a variety of different activities outside the school premises.  These include, for example, football after school, football matches, rounders, basketball, athletics, school tours, swimming, and any other activities that arise.  When we take the children on these outings, we allocate suitable levels of supervision to meet the needs of the particular activity.

In relation to Rackard League (Hurling, Gaelic Football and Camogie) matches and training the school can not take responsibility for transportation arrangements for each of these activities.
It is therefore up to the children, and their parents, to make these arrangements for themselves.

We are asking you to sign a consent form for all the different activities which arise during the school year.  If a child does not have parental consent unfortunately we can’t allow them to participate.

It has been brought to my attention that there are a number of new parents to the school who are not familiar with these out-of-school activities:  should any parent have any questions about this, or any other matter, please feel free to contact me.

If you do not wish your child to take part in any particular activity, please send in a letter with your child to his/her teacher stating so.  This can then be filed along with the annual consent form.
Please fill in the Annual Consent Form below and return to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

__________________________(Principal)
