School note December 5th

Dear parents,

                      Congratulations to Áine O'Brien, Sixth Class, whose entry in the 'Someone like Me' Art Competition was awarded second place in the national  category. 'Someone Like Me' focussed on the theme of disability. This is a great achievement. Mr Barry, Áine's teacher, travelled to Dublin on Tuesday for the prizegiving in the City Hall. Áine was interviewed on RTE 2 television on Tuesday afternoon.

West Midlands Theatre from Wolverhampton visited the school today to stage a performance of 'Aladdin' for children from First to Fourth class.

Fiona McHale from Active School Flag sent this meesage to Ms Walsh this week:

' Thank you for inviting us to visit your school recently and for showcasing your engagement with the Active School Flag initiative. In particular, we would like to thank the ASF committee for all their hard work in helping to get your school more active. 

CONGRATULATIONS, we are delighted to award your school with the Active School Flag.'

I would like to thank Mrs Walsh for all her hard work coordinating the renewal of our Active Flag.

Today, the schoolyard will be a blaze of colour for the Festive Run. All proceeds to the Redemptorist Food Appeal. 

                The  school Christmas Carol Service takes place in Ballybrown Church on Wednesday December 18th at 10 a.m. for parents of children from Junior infants to Second Class  and 11.15 a.m. for parents of children from Third to Sixth classes. All children need a red Santa Hat.
