The school has been fortunate to take delivery of two computers courtesy of Regeneron. Thanks to Nigel Woods for his help. It is greatly appreciated.
Fifth class pupils have commenced a six week programme of Cycling Safety Lessons with John and Kieran of Cycle Right.
Steve Ryan of Music Generation visited Ballybrown NS yesterday for the first lessons of his year long module with the children in Fifth and Sixth classes. Music Generation culminates in a concert for all schools involved in the initiative in June 2010 in Thomond Park.
The children in Fifth and Sixth classes are looking forward to Whizzkids, the IT and Coding classes which commence on Friday September 20th. If any family hasn't paid for Whizzkids or Music Generation, I would appreciate if you would do so at your earliest convenience.
The Cumann na mBunscol season has begun. This week, Ballybrown NS Under 13 boys played Gaelscoil an Ráithín on Tuesday and the Under 13 girls football team played St Nessan's yesterday. Today, Mr Sheehy and Mr Tuohy will travel to Monaleen for the opening game of the Under 11 season.
The Parents Association met on Tuesday night in the school. The AGM will take place on Tuesday September 24th.
Due to a number of very late withdrawals, the school needs to enrol at least two more children before the DES deadline date of September 30th. Otherwise, we will lose a class teacher at Halloween and classes will have to be reorganised. If you are aware of any families who have recently moved into the area or any four-five year olds who may not have started school yet, please contact the school as soon as possible.
