School note Dec 21st 2011

Dear parents,
                   I wish to bring the following to your attention.
'The Xmas Factor', our Christmas show played to a packed house on Monday night. Angels, shepherds, soldiers were just some of the huge cast who put on a wonderful performance. Thank you to everybody who helped out. A special word of thanks to Mrs Dillon and Ms McCarthy who once again worked miracles with tinsel, tea towels and tinfoil to stage a memorable performance. I am also most grateful to Pat Gallagher, Parish Clerk, who was so courteous and helpful at all times.
                  The collection for the Fr Gerry Daly Fund raised €215.47.
Thank you all the parents who spent time bagpacking in Tesco last Monday. Giving of your time to help the school is much appreciated.
All pupils will attend Mass at 10 a.m. in Ballybrown Church tomorrow, Thursday 22nd to mark Mrs Allen's retirement. Parents are most welcome to attend this Mass.
We are all sad to see Mrs Allen leave after 32 years service in this school. We wish her a long, happy and healthy retirement.
Tomorrow, we also say goodbye to Mrs Mary Hayes, who teaches the other Fourth Class group. Mrs Hayes will take up her new post as Principal of Granagh National School in January. I would like to wish Mrs Hayes well in her new appointment. She has been a great asset to this school over the last 16 months.
School will end for all pupils at 12.30 p.m. tomorrow and will reopen on Monday January 9th. 2012.
On behalf of the Board of Management and staff of the school, I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas. I look forward to seeing you all in 2012.
