School note April 4th. 2014



Dear parents,

                     Yesterday was a significant day in the school calendar as 71 boys and girls received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Leahy in St. Joseph’s Church. Preparations have been in full swing for many weeks. Events such as Confirmation are a team effort and  I am extremely grateful to all the class teachers involved, Mr. Lordan, Mr Hodnett and Mrs Mulroe as well as Mr. Curtin who has left the school recently. Ms. Day has done superb work with the Choir and all the children have been wonderful. Thanks to the school’s Parents Association who provided refreshments. Well done to all concerned.

                 This week the City Cumann na mBunscol leagues began and Ballybrown NS got off to a winning start in both hurling and camogie.

Please note that school will close for Easter on Friday April 11th. at 12.30 p.m. and reopen on Monday April 28th

School will be closed on Friday May 23rd as the school is used as a polling station for the local elections.
