Drop-off and Pick-up
August 29th, 2015
We ask that you take great care during Drop-off and Pick-up times at the school.
With the increased number of families we must always be vigilant and ensure the safety of both children and adults.
Consider dropping off the children and moving away to facilitate others.
If you are parking please do so away from the school gates and drop off point.
Consider using the Mass Path which has been upgraded by the local Development Association for those children who can enter school independently.
And for those children old enough, independent and close enough to the school why not walk or cycle?
Remember the safety of our children is a priority for all of us.

Ballindaggin girls Rackard League team played their final group game against Craanford in Coolree today. After victories against Rathnure, Loretto Gorey and Blackwater a win would have put the girls through to a Roinn A semi-final.
Ballindaggin went in 0-2 to 0-0 ahead at half time. Craanford battled back hard to level the game at 0-2 to 0-2 with ten minutes left. Craanford managed to score a goal after a period of pressure which put them ahead with five minutes remaining. The Ballindaggin girls battled hard and came close to scoring on a couple of occasions but Craanford held out in the end to top the group.
The girls now play Glynn in the Roinn A quarter final at 3pm in Monageer next Tuesday May 26th.
