I wish to bring the following to your attention.
In order to improve communication and access to information for parents, the school has recently launched a blog which may be found on the internet at the address www.ballybrownns.ie
Information such as the school calendar for the year, Healthy Eating policy, Code of Behaviour may be found on the site. The Thursday note will be posted on the site each week in case your child is absent on that day or the note gets mislaid. In time, we hope to post information on upcoming events, Green School activities and Parents Association news.
There will be a collection of clothes, shoes etc on Friday October 15th. with funds going to our very active Parents Association. A note about this has gone out today. All items will be collected no later than 10 a.m. on that day. The school will be open from 8 a.m. on that morning. Please go directly to the Halla via the Junior Yard.
Parents of children in Junior Infants to Third Class are invited to attend an Information Evening on Shared Reading presented by Ms Siobhan Doherty in the school on Monday next October 11th at 8.30 p.m.
Our Green School Committee, consisting of 2 representatives of each class, working under the guidance of Mrs Hodgins, Ms Mc Carthy and Ms Fitzgerald, met this week to plan their activities for the year. Recycling, reducing waste, saving energy and maintaining the appearance of the school and school grounds were all on the agenda.
