Induction

Parents are invited to an informative ‘Induction Meeting’ for parents only, in Ballyneale National School next Thursday the 14th June at 2.15pm.  This informal gathering will give you the opportunity to meet with other parents of new Junior Infant pupils enrolling for the 2018/2019 school year.  Whilst discussing the daily routine of the school, we will endeavour to address all queries or concerns that you may have.

The following publication from the INTO is a useful resource for the parents of new entrants to primary school.

Your Child in the Primary School – INTO

County Museum

1st and 2nd class enjoyed a trip to Clonmel today as the Tipperary county museum in connection with the Clonmel Show showcased farming life and crafts.

They saw sheep being sheared, new calves, ponies, a blacksmith making horseshoes, a bee hive and alpacas.  They also saw a demonstration of weaving straw and rushes into St. Bridget’s crosses and the spinning of wool.

They had a great day.
