With only 5 days to go until the Bally breakfast, Junior Infants have been very busy making breakfasts from Play Doh. Some of the children even made special train shaped toast today. Unfortunately we wont have train shaped toast on Sunday morning but everyone will surely have a wonderful chat and enjoy their breakfast. We are all very excited to attend the Bally Breakfast on Sunday morning.
The Parent’s Council would sincerely like to thank each and everyone who helped out in any way to make last Saturday’s Holy Communion refreshments in the hall a huge success. From all the beautiful home baking, to setting up the hall, serving everyone on the day and the cleanup afterwards.
It was wonderful to see this lovely tradition return and was much appreciated by Parent’s/Guardians and families of the Holy Communion children who visited the hall on the day. It didn’t go unnoticed all the hard work that everyone did with a smile. Thank You.
On behalf of the Second Class Parent’s
We would like to thank everyone who organized and helped with the serving of refreshments in the hall after First Holy Communion last Saturday. We really appreciated the lovely cup of tea/coffee and the many lovely treats. The excitement in the hall when we arrived was amazing and for each child to get a personalized goodie bag and cookie with their name was just so thoughtful.
The countdown has officially begun, the Bally Breakfast takes place in less 13 days. We hope you're all able to make it. :)
School Coach Mark Keane, being left know where the pupil's loyalty lies during training on Friday. :) Up Tipp!!!!
