School note November 14th

Dear parents,

                      Yesterday, Sr Rose Miriam and Ms Veronica Behan from Limerick Diocesan Service came to  the school and visited all classes. They were very happy with the work going on at all  class levels.

                       On Tuesday Rachel from the Road Safety Authority conducted workshops with Third and Fourth classes. These were very worthwhile sessions as she dealt with Road Safety for pedestrians, cyclists, drivers and passengers.

                      On Monday, John Clancy from Cycle Right presented certificates to the boys and girls in Fifth Class who have completed a six-week programme on Cycling Safety. This programme included on-road lessons with John and his fellow instructor Kieran. It is subsidised by Limerick County Council.

                          Last Friday, Mr Barry's class went to the Hunt Museum to learn about the ILEN Project.  The Ilen is a 56-foot long wooden ketch designed in 1926 by one of the country's greatest sailors, Edward Conor O'Brien from Ardagh. The historic Ilen sailing boat, which first sailed along the Shannon Estuary over 92 years ago, has come home to Limerick docks after a restoration which has gone on for two decades.This project has a strong Ballybrown flavour as  Tommy Roberts, from Newtown,  worked with the crew on the boat sailing her back to Limerick.
