Thank you for choosing Ballymurray National School. We hope that your child will be very happy during their time here. All our staff work very hard to provide the highest level of education while ensuring there is an emphasis on fun, well being and enjoyment.
Starting school will be the first big change in the life of your child. This may seem a big step for someone so small but most children manage it without any great fuss or stress – and in fact take to it like ducks to water.However, it is also a time when parents and teachers should take special care to ensure that the transition from home to school is as smooth as possible. If the child’s first experience of school is one of happy involvement, a very good foundation will have been laid for fruitful school years ahead.
We have also included some helpful tips and guidelines suggested by the National Parents' Council Primary and Early Childhood Ireland. You can also have a browse through some very useful ideas suggested by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) for each class throughout the school.
