School Note December 20th 2012

Dear parents,    
                     Mr. Curtin's Sixth Class organised the Christmas Fun Day on Tuesday and raised  €1100 (approx) which will go to three deserving causes selected by the children-one local, one national and one international.  Face painting, Lucky Dip, Santa, not to mention the thousands of home baked cakes and buns all added to the enjoyment of a memorable day. Thanks to all the boys and girls, Mr. Curtin, Mary Conway and everybody involved for their efforts.
The Christmas show 'Santa Goes to Ballytown' featuring children from First to Sixth took place in Ballybrown Church on Monday night. Great credit is due to Mrs Dillon and all the cast who have been rehearsing for this production. Many thanks to all who helped with costumes, transport, even sleigh construction!
A Table Quiz for pupils in 4th , 5th, and Sixth classes took place yesterday and was greatly enjoyed by all involved.. Over 100 children  took part. Thank you to the Parents Association for providing prizes.
Many parents are taking part in bagpacking in Tesco in Dooradoyle on Saturday .The Parents Association still need volunteers for bagpacking  duties between 12 noon and 2 p.m.. This is a great opportunity to make some money for school funds. Maybe there are some teenage past pupils who would help out. Please contact the school or any member of the Parents Committee.
School will close for all pupils tomorrow Friday at 12.30 p.m. and reopen on Monday January 7th., 2013.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very peaceful Christmas.
Gach dea-ghuí,


J. Lyons
