School note November 20th. 2014


Dear parents,

                     I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                     The Book Fair was a great success. Thanks to all the parents who helped out on the sales front on Thursday and Friday. Takings amounted to €2,195. The school commission is 60% credit in books which comes to €1,317. All class teachers will be able to choose approximately €130 worth of books from the catalogue for their class library.

                   Preparations for 'Hallelujah Chorus' in Citywest on December 2nd are ongoing. Parents are reminded that all monies due must be paid by tomorrow. Further details closer to the date.

                   Parent- teacher meetings take place on Wednesday and Thursday 26th. and 27th.  of November from 3.15 p.m. to 5.30 p.m.                               

                    Vaccinations for Junior Infants will take place in the school Halla on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

                  On Monday last, Fr Seán Harmon and Ms Fiona Dineen, Diocesan Religious Examiners,  visited all classes in the school. They were both extremely happy with the work going on in the school.

               Enrolment 2015: Closing date for application for enrolment in Ballybrown National School for 2015-2016 is 3 p.m. on Friday January 23rd. 2015. There are already over 50 names on the list of applicants for enrolment.

               TIDY TOWNS: The pre-Christmas clean up is scheduled for Saturday November 22nd. Volunteers to meet at Clarina Cross at 12 noon. Children must be accompanied by an adult.  

             Parking: As the weather deteriorates, it is important for parents to be conscious at all times of safety in the vicinity of the school. I wish to highlight particularly children crossing from the Car Park to the school entrance. Nobody should park in that area at any time.
