School note January 26th


Dear parents,

                     Next week is Catholic Schools Week. Fr Cussen will visit the school on Monday for a prayer service to begin the week.   There will be other activities during the week.

                  This week,  teachers have put up Maths Displays on the corridors of the school. There are very eyecatching displays to be seen.  See them on our Twitter page @Ballybrown NS.

                     Tomorrow night, Friday 27th of January, a number of teams from the school will take part in the local heat of the Credit Union Quiz. The boys and girls have met every day during lunchtime and have worked hard. I wish them well. The quiz is in Mungret GAA club at 7.30 p.m.

                   On Tuesday next January 31st, Clan Cluana Theatre Company will perform   ' The Story of Diarmuid agus Grainne'  for all children in classes from Third to Sixth inclusive. This is a lovely way for children to learn about Irish myths and legends.

                Head Lice: Head Lice are a common problem in any environment where children assemble.This school is no exception.For information on dealing with this problem, see

Gach dea-ghuí,

J. Lyons
