School note November 23rd


Dear parents,

                      I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                      It is school policy to contact parents if their child bumps his/her head. In the case of minor bumps, the school will henceforth send a text to advise parents so that parents are aware of the incident. In the event of a more serious incident, the school will call the parent.

                     Lismore Primary Science conducted a workshop on 'The Guts of Digestion' for the children in Fifth and Sixth Classes on Monday as part of this school's programme for Science Week.

         Congratulations to Kathlyn O Hara and Aimee Halpin who both won prizes in the MPCC Credit Union Art Competition.

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

                  Mossie Woulfe of Athletics Ireland will visit school on Tuesday November 28th at 11.30 a.m. to present team medals to successful competitors who took part in the Cross  Country Championships on October 25th.

                The turnover from the Book Fair amounted to €2518.80. I would like to express my appreciation of the time given so generously by the parents who helped run the Book Fair on Thursday and Friday last.

          Parents Association Newsletter will be distributed to all First in Families children in the coming days so keep an eye out for it in the schoolbags.

         Website: All information relating to the school, school calendar, booklists, etc  is on the website . Check in on  Twitter @BallybrownNS to keep yourself informed on school news.

             The National Parents Council, in conjunction with St Patrick's Mental Health Services, invite all parents to a talk entitled 'Supporting Parents to Support their children's Mental Health and Well Being' in the South Court Hotel on Tuesday December 5th at 7.30 p.m.    Admission is free.
