A BIG WELCOME back to everybody. A very special welcome to all the boys that have joined us from other schools especially the boys in Rang 1 who look stunning in their shiny new uniforms.
We also have some new faces in the Staff Room this year, Catherine Kelly & Daniel Glennon who are both working on the Special Ed. Team and Paddy Murphy who is teaching Rang 5.
This is a very busy time of the year for us in the office and we would appreciate your patience as we try to get everything coordinated and up and running for the year.

Swimming lessons during school hours started last Monday for Rang 6. Every class (in descending order!) will get a 6 week session over the school year ending with Rang 1 in May/ June
Football trials are already underway for the boys in Rang 4, Rang 5 & Rang 6. The coaches give the messages about these sessions to the boys in class. In general it is a good idea to have your gear in most days as this activity is not just weather dependant but it also depends on the availability of coaches and pitches on a particular day.
Rang 1 had their first football session with Coach today and it went really well. This will take place every Tuesday during school hours from now until June.
Ballyboden Club have scheduled training sessions for Rang 2 & Rang 3 to take place during school hours also. We expect these sessions to start shortly.
Table Tennis starts next Thursday 17th for 12 weeks. Rang 3 & 4 2.30 to 3.30 and Rang 5 & 6 3.30 to 4.30.
