Happy New Year to all members of the Ballinteer ETNS community!
I hope that you had a peaceful break over the holidays.
Our school’s value for January 2024 is Empathy and Understanding. Special assemblies on this topic will be led by 3rd class; Lisa’s class will lead the assembly on Friday 19th January and Maeve’s class will lead the assembly on Friday 2nd February. At this morning’s assembly, we heard some wonderful examples from our teachers of times this week when their pupils had been kind towards a classmate or helped them in a time of need. We look forward to developing this theme as the month goes on.
Building works update
Starting this Monday, 15th of January, there will be several months of work on our shared campus as the builders improve the footpaths in front of St Tiernan’s leading towards the all-weather pitch. Over the Spring Holidays, when the two schools are closed, there will be several weeks of work to resurface the road closer to St Tiernan’s. All relevant updates will be shared with families as the school receives more information from the Department of Education or the builders.
