Just a post to let you know about our plans to have a monthly film night open to first year students. It will be held in the Lions' Club Youth Centre. We plan to begin on Friday 11th of October and the film night will run between 7:15pm and 9:30pm, with places be limited to sixty students each night.
The idea is that a film will be chosen each month that will be either inspirational, thought provoking, or have a moral to it. Given that the Rugby World Cup is currently taking place we plan to show Invictus (2009) which has an Irish rating classification of age PG13. The film tells the inspiring true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team to help unite their country.
If your child would like to attend please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org stating your child’s name, class and granting your permission to attend. Please state Carrigaline Community School Film Night as the subject of the email. If you do not recieve an email reply you can take it that your child has secured a place at the film night. If I do reply it will be to tell you that all places have been allocated and that unfortunately your child does not have a place on this occasion. A list of those who have a place at the movie night will also be posted up in the 1st year Social/Assembly area. When emailing me please also include your mobile telephone number so I can contact you on the night if your child is on the list and does not attend. If you child has a place on the night and cannot attend I would be grateful if you would email as soon as you know that he/she cannot make it. As places are limited they will be allocated strictly on a first come first served basis and only by following the above instructions.
Finally, there is no charge for the night but having consulted with the students we have decided that students can make a donation on the night (€3 or €4 is suggested) and all money each month will be donated to a charity chosen by the students in attendance on the night.
I will be in touch again after the midterm with details of November’s film night.
