School note November 27th. 2014

Dear parents,

                    I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                    There is just a week to go to the performance of the 'Hallelujah Chorus' in Citywest and it's all systems go for the big day. Over 130 children will enjoy the opportunity to perform at this unique event. It promises to be a great experience for all involved.

                    On Tuesday, we had a visit from Limerick ladies footballers Paula Godfrey and Caroline Hickey and Cork All Ireland winning footballer Sarah Harrington to mark the first-ever victory for  Ballybrown NS in the City girls football competitions. The three players also presented medals to the boys under 13 football team, runners up in the City leagues and to our three prizewinning teams at the County Cross country finals. Fiona, Caroline and Ciara are ideal role models as they spoke of the friendships they have made through sport.

               The boys and girls in Junior Infants enjoyed a special treat this week when Garda Frank O Sullivan visited to speak to them about the role of the Garda. We are very grateful to Frank for taking the time out of his busy schedule.

             Last Friday, the pupils in Fifth and Sixth classes finished a ten week course in ICT with Whizzkids. The final lesson was on the topic of internet safety. Parents need to be very vigilant in this area of modern life.

            Please note that  Friday January 23rd.. is the closing date for applications to be enrolled in Junior Infants in 2014-2015.

           The Christmas Carol Service will take place on Tuesday December 16th in Ballybrown Church. More details closer to the date.

                Ballybrown GAA: Santa Claus is scheduled to arrive in Ballybrown GAA club on Sunday December 21st. at 3 p.m.


Gach dea-ghuí,



Joe Lyons
