Multi Purpose Space for All Children at SBN

This year the PA’s fundraising efforts will be focused on the creation of multi purpose
space for all children at SBN. As we have invested in a laptop trolley and full set of
laptops we plan to redecorate our computer room and create a multi functional space,
full of colour, cool furniture, beanbags and activities that can be enjoyed by all. A space
where classes can go for chill out time, play board games, have a disco or watch a
movie on the large interactive screen (like their own mini cinema). Smaller groups or
individuals may visit the room and use the sensory activities and functions. It is hoped
that this room will provide a unique space to stimulate creativity, discussion and
innovation or offer a quiet space to relax and unwind. We will keep you posted on this
development. We will post pictures to our website and Facebook page as the project
evolves.  The benches and desks have been dismantled and the
true size and potential of the room can be seen. Next step will be new flooring.

Remember all parents are welcome as members of the PA. You can help out on a
continuous or one off basis. If you are interested in joining the PA or wish to learn more
about the PA please email pa@scoilbarranaofa.ie or see www.npc.ie Likewise, if you
are interested in working with the Wellbeing Parents Group please email the school
office on info@scoilbarranaofa.ie and we will be happy to connect parents.

Summer News
The PA recently organised the Summer Sizzler event at Monkstown Golf Club. Parents
had the opportunity to meet socially for the first time since the outbreak of Covid 19.
This event raised €2200.00 and these funds will be directly reinvested directly back into
the children. Many thanks to Tom Browne for the generous donation of a stunning
painting. Congratulations to the winner, Louisa O’ Connor.

The PA have recently engaged local mural artist Jamie Howard to work with the
children in creating a mural for our “new” room. An ice cream van will visit the school on
June 24th and all children will enjoy a treat. A neon disco including neon snacks and
glow sticks has been organised for the children of 6th Class and gifts purchased for our
graduates and Communion children. These very important and much valued events and
treats would not be possible without the work of the PA and without the support of our
parent body in general. Míle Buíochas Ó Chroí.
