We have had fantastic news from Abbvie who have a manufacturing plant in our locality.  On the week of June 18th to 22nd, staff from Abbvie will refurbish St Edward’s NS building! The outside and inside will be painted and some floor coverings will also be renewed. Of course this will mean that we cannot be in the building that week.

The principal of Ballinode College, Mr David Mc Guinness has kindly offered us the use of rooms in the college for the duration of the refurbishment. Therefore children’s school attendance will not be affected.  We will be able to run normal classes in Ballinode College and our Code of Behaviour, uniform rules etc will apply while we are there.

We will update families on where to drop and collect the children nearer the time. As Ballinode College is so close to St Edward’s NS, we hope that it should not cause any great difficulties for families.

This is a great chance to refresh the school building and we are very thankful to Abbvie in advance for choosing St Edward’s NS for their project for Week of Opportunities 2018.
