This week, Tim Toomey and John Looney of Ballybrown Tidy Towns Committee visited the school. They met the Green Schools Committee and presented us with two bird houses, a hedgehog box and a bat box. The school grounds contain many habitats and we are fortunate to be located in such a beautiful rural environment. Any adults interested in joining a local Wildlife Committee should contact John or Tim.
The school's Under 13 Girls Football team has been busy on the playing front. Last week, Mrs. Mulroe's charges defeated an Mhodh Scoil and yesterday Milford NS were the opponents. The Under 13 boys team, trained by Mr Lordan, has played one game so far this season while Mr Sheehy's 3rd & 4th class team play Lisnagry tomorrow.
Staying on a sporting theme, we would like to wish Ballybrown hurlers the best of luck in the county intermediate hurling final on Sunday.
With the county final in mind, the school's Parents Association is holding a Green and White Colours Day tomorrow Friday. All funds to the Parents Association. €1 per child.
Clarina Thursday Club will hold a Cake Sale in the School Hall on Sunday September 25th after 11 o'clock Mass. There will be a 'cup cake' competition for children under 14 years of age.
If you need to meet with any of the teaching staff, please contact the school to make an appointment. If you have concerns about your child, please arrange to meet the class teacher as the first step.

The perennial issue of parking and safety is always with us. Parents who are new to the school may not be aware of parking arrangements for morning and afternoon. . There has been some confusion about entrance/ exit procedures. Please note that traffic enters near Fr O Connor's house and exits near to the school.
Safety of pupils is at all times our first concern. I would ask parents not to park or drop off children near the area reserved for buses or the staff car park. Children should not walk through the staff car park. Children using Mc Elligott's or Madigan's buses must enter and exit at the gate near the oil tank. This is to avoid the risk of children walking in front of parked buses or oncoming traffic.
MPCC Credit Union will return to the school on Friday September 16th and every Friday from then on.
The AGM of the school's Parents Association will take place in the school on Monday September 12th. at 8.30 p.m. All parents are welcome.
I would like to express my gratitude to all the families for their Art & Craft/Photocopying contributions. If you have not yet paid this money, you can give it to Rosemary in the school office any day between 9a.m. and 2p.m.
Best of luck to our hurling team who will take part in the Ard Scoil Rís Blitz on Saturday morning.
Allianz Pupil Personal Insurance: Should you decide to avail of this insurance, please hand monies to the School Office by Friday September 16th.
