Ballymitty N.S. welcomes our new Junior Infants & families

Today is a special day as we welcome all our new V.I.P's (very important pupils) to our school!!

Hello Junior Infant pupils & families


We welcome you all to Ballymitty N.S. We look forward to getting to know you all, to hearing your funny stories, to seeing your beautiful work, to hearing your fantastic singing voices, to watching you grow, learn & blossom as you rise through the ranks of our school. In Junior Infants we will put in the foundations & cornerstones of your education. As the years progress we will take down the scaffolding & watch as you stand on your own two feet & soar to great heights.

Parents & Guardians, we welcome you all too. This is not the usual way you would be introduced to our great school but we hope we will give you a glimpse in the following video clips of what to expect as your child begins their primary education with us.

Boys & girls, when I was a little girl, I loved to watch a programme called BOSCO. (Mams & Dads might remember BOSCO too!!!)

Here he is...


Bosco had a magic door & we used to go through this magic door to all kinds of wonderful places. So I'm going to take you on a trip through our green classroom door!! ARE YOU READY!!!

'Knock, Knock open wide,

See what's on the other side,

Knock, Knock once more,

Come with me through your classroom door!!!'

Now Mams & Dads here is your welcome power-point video to fill you in on some important information you need to be aware of as your child starts their primary school education with us. If you have any questions or queries, please email the school on

Please allow yourself some time to listen to this as it is over 24mins long. Thank you. In September, we would hope to have a face-to-face meeting some evening to give you further details on the year ahead.

And finally a chat from our principal, Ms. Audrey McCarthy informing you of other school related information which is important for you to be aware of.

Wishing you all a safe, active & fun-filled Summer.

Keep an eye on the app for further updates & developments as we know them.

Kind regards,

Ms. Franey & Ms. McCarthy
