St Vincent De Paul Parish - 40 Year Anniversary - Mission
Over the next two weeks, St Vincent's Parish will embark on a two week mission. The mission will be in St Louise Primary on Monday and Tuesday and then St Vincent's Primary on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. This is an opportunity for home, parish and school to celebrate together and members of the mission will be offering tea and coffee and a chance to chat with them on Monday at the end of the school day and Tuesday morning when you are dropping your children off. If you can spare a few minutes please stop and chat with them. (added 11.03.18)
Police have re-evaluated the situation on Whitehills Terrace and cars will be able to park on the road-side nearest to the schools but will be unable to park on the opposite side of the road. (added 08.03.18)
Please note that due to the congestion on Whitehills Terrace at the end of the school day and to ensure ALL pupils are safe, there will be a Police Controlled Traffic Management System in place from Thursday 8th March until the end of the road works, where no cars will be able to park on this road. Advice would be to park at an alternative location and walk to the school grounds. Thank you for your support and co-operation with this. (added 07.03.18)
Work continues as SLC prepare to open ALL schools tomorrow and run ALL school transport, including Additional Support Needs.
Roads crews are making sure there is suitable access to every school but parents/carers and staff should assess and plan their journeys and be prepared for any local issues, including snow affecting car parks. Please consider car sharing to reduce the amount of traffic on the road.
Please note that while SLC do expect ALL schools to open, some may have to make local decisions, such as delayed opening, and we will provide regular updates on those in the morning. Please check websites and social media for updates.
