School note September 29th. 2011

Dear parents,
                     I wish to bring the following to your attention.
Fr. O Connor has informed me that First Holy Communion for this school will take place on Saturday May 19th.  2012 at 11 a.m. in St Joseph's Church, Ballybrown.
Today, we welcome Fr. Muiris to the school for a Mass for the opening of the school year.
John Clancy of Cycling School Ireland has been conducting cycling safety lessons with Third Class for the past 3 weeks. The lessons have been a great success.
Our school teams are very busy on the playing fields at the moment. Tomorrow, Mrs Mulroe will bring a team from the school to Mary Immaculate College to play in a Football Blitz for fourth Class girls. Last week, Ms Hayes and Ms Keyes were in charge of our team that played in the camogie blitz. A most enjoyable day was had by all. Today, Pat Gavin from Ballybrown GAA begins hurling coaching with Second Class. This has been very successful for the last couple of years.
Thank you to all the families who have paid the Art & Craft/ Photocopying contribution. If you have not paid yet, please drop contributions to the school office.
Mr Dermot Lambe from Limerick County Council will visit the school today as part of our efforts to alleviate the parking problems that arise from time to time. Patrickswell gardaí have also visited the school to observe the difficulties that occur. Safety of pupils is foremost in all our actions in this regard.
The next meeting of the school's Parents Association will take place in the school next Monday October 3rd. at 8.30 p.m.
Gach dea-ghuí,

J. Lyons
