Back to School 2018

Posted on Monday, August 27, 2018

On Monday 3rd of September we will all return to school in Eyrecourt NS. 

We welcome our new Junior Infants: Chloe, Cillian, Harry, Luke,  Ryan (Kenny), Ryan (Lynch),  Sean (Gilligan) and Sean (Hoban).
Ms Kearns will be returning to the junior room for Mrs Greaney's maternity leave. We wish Mrs Greaney all the best with her new arrival.   

Last years sixth class of Amy, Enda, Jane, Kayla, Leah, Molly, Niamh and Róisín are starting in their first year in Banagher College. We're all looking forward to hearing about their great achievements into the future.  

If you were passing the school you might have noticed that unfortunately there has been no activity so far on the wall. Pupils and visitors will still enter and exit the school at the left side door. The good news is that a builder has been appointed and the school is going through the process to secure funding for the front section of the wall. The plan is then to build all the wall together in the coming months. Thank you all for your patience. The last wall served the school for over one hundred years so hopefully a few extra months will ensure we have the best structure for our school.
