School note November 6th. 2014

Dear parents,

                     I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                    Yesterday, 55 children from this school took part in the Limerick Cross Country Sports in Rathkeale. It was a most enjoyable experience for all who took part. Ballybrown NS won the Girls Under 9 team category  and was placed second in the Boys Under 10 category.  I am grateful to all the parents who attended and helped in so many ways.

                   Parent teacher meetings will take place on Wednesday and Thursday November 26th and 27th between 3.15 p.m. and 5.30 p.m. It is hoped to confirm appointments by the end of next week.  All parents will receive written confirmation of appointments. With 175 families in the school, scheduling meetings for 270 children over two days is a formidable task. Your co- operation is greatly appreciated.

    Swimming classes for children in Fourth Class start on Wednesday next November 12th. in Askeaton Leisure Centre.

                            The Parents Association are looking for volunteers with the Book Fair.  If you are available to assist on Thursday 13th November, between 2pm - 4pm or between  7.30pm and 9.30pm, or on Friday 14th between 9am-10am  or  from 2pm to 3.30pm, please text Claire Shields at 085 7846255.  

                           It has come to my attention that a number of children are dropped at school at an early hour. I wish to remind parents that the school cannot accept responsibility for children who are at school before 9 a.m. All children are supervised in the playground from 9 a.m. on morning when the weather is dry and in their classrooms on wet mornings.

          Well done to Alicja Nalaskowska and Emily Buckley, prizewinners in the MPCC Credit Union Art Competition.
