Our Sponsored Walk to raise funds for science equipment for all classes takes place on Thursday 31st May. The route this year is from School to St. Anne's Park and back. Children should have proper footwear – good runners and clothing on the day and to bring snacks and a drink in a small bag. 

 

Sponsorship cards have been distributed to all children and we hope that everyone can help in this funding project. All amounts collected, irrespective of size, will be gratefully received and applied directly towards the science project.

These can be dropped in the collections bucket in the front office at School 

                                                      or

can be lodged online by funds transfer into account: 

Bank of Ireland Killester, BIC: BOFIIE2D, IBAN: IE22 BOFI 9005 9437 8289 44. (Please add the reference: "Sponsored Walk")

Greenlanes is delighted to announce that we will shortly roll out the Aladdin Connect App to parents/guardians of the school.   

The school uses the Aladdin software service www.aladdin.ie for administrative purposes and Connect will give you secure access to messages from the school and to details of your child’s attendance, test results, etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App. To comply with GDPR, Connect will be the only method of accessing your child's end of year reports going forward. 

Aladdin Connect is a fantastic way to enhance our communication with parents. It enables you to stay connected and informed about your child's education by:
- Ensuring that we have your most up to date contact information
- Keeping you apprised of your child's attendance
- Keeping you up to date on school and classroom news via noticeboard messages
- Allowing you view your child's approved report card
- Giving you the option to opt in to share contact information with your child's classmates’ parents via the Parent Privacy option for the class list.
- Allowing you to view your child's latest standardised test results

You can rest reassured that Aladdin Schools uses state-of-the-art security to safeguard information entered by the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws (GDPR).


On Monday 28th May, you will receive an email containing your registration link. There will be one link per parent which will allow you to access information for all your children in the school from one user account. Please do not forward this text/email or share this link as this is a unique registration code for each parent for your child/children in this school. During registration you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect going forward. Once you are registered you will be sent an email with links to download the Aladdin Connect App for your mobile device. The main advantage of using the App is to receive immediate alerts for app messages sent by your school. Downloading the App is essential to enhance both the parent and school's Connect experience.

By default both parents will have access to their child’s contact information. If for any reason you do NOT wish to share your own personal contact information within the family circle or if you have any concerns regarding your particular family setup please contact the school in confidence before 12pm on Monday 28th May to discuss or have this facility restricted.

If you have any questions or queries regarding Aladdin Connect, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Board of Management and the Parents’ Association regard security at Greenlanes NS to be of utmost importance.

Following a recent incident where a bike was stolen from the school premises a review of the school’s security arrangements was undertaken in the interests of all pupils, staff and parents.

This has resulted in expenditure of €3,440.44 being incurred on improved intercom, access / exit control pads at gates and at the school itself, new locks and gate repairs, all outside of the school’s operating budget.

As an additional measure bicycle racks were relocated to the rear of the school building.

The Board of Management and the Parents’ Association have decided to launch a special appeal to parents to cover this unforeseen expenditure. 

All donations, irrespective of size will be gratefully received. Parents can donate online by funds transfer into account: Bank of Ireland Killester , BIC: BOFIIE2D, IBAN:  IE22 BOFI 9005 9437 8289 44.  Please add the reference: "Security fund-raiser".  Alternatively, parents can put money into a bucket to be left in Ms Atkin's office from tomorrow.

This is a one-off special request and is outside of other fundraising efforts that are being undertaken by the Parents’ Association for science equipment.

We would like to clarify that the school’s insurance does not cover personal property taken in to school.
