School Note January 31st.2013


Dear parents,

                     I wish to bring the following to your attention.

Last Sunday almost 50 boys and girls from the school took part in the Peace Proms in UL. It was a great experience for all concerned to have the opportunity to perform with a full symphony orchestra and professional conductor as well as guest performers. It was a long day, departing school at 11 a.m. and returning at 5.30 p.m. As usual, the children were a credit to the school and their families. Great credit is due to Mrs Dillon and Anna Henn who made the experience possible.

                   Yesterday, children from Second to Sixth Classes enjoyed a performance of 'Young Fionn Mac Cumhail and the Salmon of Knowledge' when Clan Cluana Theatre Company visited the school. The stage donated by the Parents Association added to the performance. Thanks to Mr Curtin, Mr Sheehy and Mr Hennessy who assembled and dismantled it before and after school yesterday.

Tomorrow night, 5 teams from the school will take part in the MPCC Credit Union Quiz in Mungret GAA Club. We wish them well.

                   Fr. O Connor visited the school for a Prayer Service on Monday as part of Catholic Schools Week. We also were delighted to welcome Mrs Murtagh to Second Class for Grandparents Day. Tomorrow is Lá le Bríde, the feast of St Bridget.

                   A note from Ballybrown/Clarina Community Games: The annual talent competition will take place Sunday 3rd February at starting at 5pm. Admission is adults €2 and competitors (who are not registered with us already this year)  €5 to cover entry to all competitions throughout the year. Anybody who has not put their name down - you can still come along on the night and participate.


Gach dea-ghuí,



J. Lyons
