School note November 21st 2013


Dear Parents,

                    Parent- teacher meetings take place on Wednesday and Thursday 27th. and 28th. of November from 3.15 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.                


                The Book Fair was a great success last week. I wish to thank the members of the Parents Association who gave generously of their time both during school hours and at night. Total sales in the Book Fair amounted to €2067.80. The school received books to the value of €1240.68.

                 Sport: Well done to Barry O Connor and Dara Punch who played on the Limerick City team in the Sarsfield Cup final under lights at the Gaelic Grounds on Tuesday.

                Confirmation: An enrolment ceremony for children in the Confirmation classes will take place at Mass in Ballybrown Church on Saturday November 30th. at 8 p.m.

Children's Choir:  On Saturday the 23rd of November, Mass at 8pm will include the children who will receive their First Holy Communion next May and who are participating in the 8 months programme known as "Do This in Memory".  In conjunction with the Masses for the programme, Noreen Cusack and Marguerite Quinn are hoping to have a children's choir and would like as many children as possible to attend.  In order to keep rehearsals simple, choir practice will be held in the church before Mass at 7.15pm on Saturday the 23rd. Enquiries to 085-8595866.

Community Games: The Art Competition was held yesterday in the Community Centre and fantastic works of art were completed by the 49 children that turn up. Well done to you all. Results will be announced towards the end of November.

If there is anybody that could not attend yesterday and would like to take part we can offer them a quite corner of the Community Centre while draughts is on  tonight from 7-8pm. This competition is open to Boys/Girls  from U8's – U16's. Draughts is on as normal in the Community Centre on Thursday evenings from 7-8pm, all welcome.

A notice of current events and up coming events is on display in the Community Centre.

Gach dea ghuí,
