Foley News


Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we head into our third and final term of the 2018-2019 Academic Year I would like to thank the staff of the school for their diligent and professional work throughout the year. Once again their efforts have resulted in Foley being a Christian, warm, welcoming, caring, workmanlike environment for all the children who attend our school. As usual we have many important activities and events to complete in the months of May and June, none more important than First Communion for our Primary 4 Class on Sunday the 19th of May in St. Patrick's Chapel Ballymacnab.

Also on Tuesday 11th of June the St. Patrick's High School Primary 7 Day takes place. Full details will be supplied to the Primary School's prior to this day. This is also our school's Primary 1 Induction Morning and we look forward to meeting all the children, not only those entering Primary 1, but also those starting in other classes, on that day from 9.15am to 12.00noon.

After Schools Clubs commenced Tuesday 29th April with the provisional timetable being; Monday - Sports Club (Gaelic); Tuesday - Hurling/Camogie Club; Wednesday - Multi-Sports and Thursday - Soccer Club. On Friday - Guitar Club will continue as normal during the school day. This may be subject to change and these Clubs will be interrupted this term by a number of school activities and closures so please check the CLUBS section of our website for further details.
