School Note September 6th 2018


Dear parents,

                        As we look forward to the year ahead, I wish to bring the following to your attention.

                           All children in the school will attend Mass in Ballybrown Church tomorrow Friday at 9.30 a.m. for the start of the school year. Children may need a coat in the event of rain.

                        Meetings with teachers: All meetings with teachers are strictly by appointment only.  Please telephone the School office to make an appointment.  If you have a concern about your child, speak to the class teacher as a first step.

                        Homework: Start as you mean to continue,  Check your child's homework diary every night.  Do not sign off on homework unless you are happy it has been completed satisfactorily.

            Healthy Eating: We are very proud of our Healthy eating policy. Fruit, sandwich and water or milk are all a child needs.  Fruit Break every day at 10 a.m.

                        Lost property:  Already, our Lost Property section is swelling.  Please ensure your child's name is on every item of clothing.

            Thanks to all the families for their Art & Craft/Photocopying contributions.  If you have not yet paid this money, you can give it to  Rosemarie in the school office any day between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.. €35 per child or €60 family.

                     Lego: Do you have Lego at home that is no longer needed? Mrs Fitzgerald would be delighted to take it off your hands as it would be of great use in Junior Infants. Please drop anything you have to the Office.

                      Request for Books: If anyone has the following books lying around at home,  the school would be very grateful to accept them:   3rd to 6th class Bun go Barr, Mathemagic, Reading Zone, Windows on the World Geography and History.


The Liam McCarthy cup will be coming to Ballybrown GAA club tomorrow  Friday 7th of September at 6.30 pm. All are welcome. Also, under 6 hurling training also resumes this Friday  at 5.45 p.m.  All new players are welcome.
