Bliain Úr faoi Mhaise! Happy New Year!

Bliain úr mhaith daoibh uilig, a chairde, ó fhoireann na Bunscoile! A very happy New Year to all of our school Community from the staff in Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche! Tá fáilte mhór romhaibh ar ais ar scoil a dhaltaí! And welcome back to school to all our pupils!

We hope you have all enjoyed the Christmas break and are keen to get back to school!  

Two important notices for January - firstly, the new online portal for Naíscoil / Rang 1 applications, for pupils starting in September 2019, is now open. Please see further details regarding enrolment on our home page.

Secondly, I would like to inform parents of the procedures regarding possible school closures due to severe weather, as there may still be some storms / severe frosts before Spring time.

If severe snow / ice or storms occur on a school morning please assume that the school is open until further notice, which will be posted on our school website and via the messaging service on our school app. Please be mindful that the school office is not staffed until 9 am. Parents are advised to avoid telephoning the school and instead should check the school website and/or school app for any weather related announcements. If travelling conditions are hazardous then please take care yourselves and realize that staff will also be slower to arrive in school as they have to travel from a distance. 

In the unlikely event of the school being closed (for example if travelling conditions have prevented several of the staff from arriving in school or if extreme wind or cold has caused damage to the school buildings) then you will be notified as soon as possible (generally this should be by 9 am) via the school app. Therefore, I would strongly urge you all to download the free Schools NI app to your phones or tablets and choose County Down, then Bunscoil Bheanna Boirche as your "favourite". This will ensure you receive the most up-to-date notifications from the school.

These procedures will also be saved in our “Tuismitheoirí / Parents ” section (under “Litreacha Scoile”) for reference in the future.

Go raibh maith agaibh agus Aithbhliain faoi shéan is faoi mhaise daoibh go léir!
