School note September 1st 2016


Dear parents,

                   Another school year is underway. It was a busy summer as our water treatment system was upgraded during the school holiday period. This was a major project but a worthwhile one which will be of benefit to the school for years to come. The builders are currently putting the finishing touches to the work.

               Yesterday 47 children enjoyed their first day at school. I look forward to getting to know them all over the coming weeks. I would also like to welcome new faces to the staff of the  school. Ms Sinead Barry is teaching 5th & 6th class. Mr Brian McMahon is teaching 5th & Sixth class. Ms Miriam O Shaughnessy has been in the school for almost two years and is teaching 3rd & 4th class. Ms Ceara Markham has been appointed as a part -time Special Needs Assistant.

Please note the following.

              Children are supervised from 9 a.m. each morning. The school cannot be responsible for pupils arriving at school before 9 a.m.

              Parking: I would appreciate if parents used the Resource Centre and Church grounds car parks. Children should not walk through the staff car park. They should enter via the gate nearest to the Resource Centre. Safety of children is paramount.  Please do not park in Staff parking areas or in Bus berths.

           Best wishes to our former pupil Josh Adams who lines out for Limerick in the All-Ireland minor hurling final on Sunday. Ballybrown NS will be well represented as Alex Connole will play in the INTO Mini Sevens at half-time while Barry Adams, Sixth class, will have the honour of presenting the match ball to the referee before the minor final.

           All children will attend Mass for the start of the new school year on Friday September 9th.  in Ballybrown Church at 11.30 a.m..

              Website: All information relating to the school, school calendar, booklists, etc  is on the website


 Gach dea-ghuí,
