What’s happening in St. Brigid’s National School, Ballysax from 2nd – 6th December.

We have been running Túsla’s “Every Day Counts” attendance campaign since September.   The aim of the campaign is to encourage good school attendance.

We are very happy to announce that our monthly attendance to date is:

September 96%

October 95%

November 95%

It is so important for all children to come to school every day and on time.

Lets try make December the best month yet.

 

In School Activities

Tuesday 3rd:  5th Class swimming.  5th Class remember to bring your swim gear.     GAA Coach in School 

Wednesday 4th: Drum Nature Workshop.  These music workshops will be available to all classes.  The cost is €3.00 per child.

Thursday 5th:  Bake Sale organised by 6th class.  Money to go towards reducing the cost of trips for 6th class during the school year.   Each child will have an opportunity to visit the bake sale with their class. We would be grateful for donations of buns/cakes if anyone can help out. On the day of the Bake Sale, each class gets an allocated time to attend and it is suggested that children bring just a few euro to spend.  Also parents welcome from 1.00-2.00pm.
