We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new Junior Infants and their parents.
Starting “big school” is a very important milestone. We at Ballyneale NS hope to make this experience as enjoyable and memorable as possible. The children have settled into school life so well and we are very proud of them.
We are super busy in the infant room and are looking forward to sharing our learning journey with you throughout the school year. So, keep an eye on our website for all updates on the wonderful work we will be doing.
Have a very happy and fun first year in primary school! 😊
