School note February 6th 2014


Dear parents,

                  You are reminded that school will be closed for midterm on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of February.

                 The children in Fifth and Sixth Classes will attend an event in UL next Tuesday as part of Engineers Week. Air-mazing: Engineering the Future with Pneumatics is a show that combines live science demonstrations, an engaging multimedia presentation and lots of volunteer and audience interaction. This event also fulfils another condition in our efforts to receive a Discovery Science & Maths Excellence Award. During the first term, we had a visit from Exploration Dome, a mobile planetarium

              The school choir is practising regularly in advance of Confirmation on April 3rd. Thanks to all the teachers involved in preparing the children for this Sacrament.

              As part of our Green School efforts, I ask children to take home any uneaten food etc. This is an effort to reduce our landfill weights. Your co-operation is appreciated.

            Congratulations to Mrs Ivess on the birth of her daughter on Monday.

                  Ballybrown Juvenile Club Registration Night will be held on Friday 7th February at 8:30 pm at the Clubhouse.  2014 Registration Fees are €20 for first child & €10 per child thereafter. Fee includes Club membership & insurance.

Gach dea ghuí,



J. Lyons
