The Pre Infant Programme is a fun introduction to Primary school and has been running in Ballyduff N.S. for a number of years. This initiative was rolled out to make the transition from home or playschool to primary school a pleasant experience. Parent and child come to the school for an hour each week and do a fun activity ie. jigsaws, play dough, colouring and drawing, reading stories etc. Pupils have the opportunity to experience the school environment and meet their teacher thus making the first day at school less daunting.
The 2019 pre-infant programme has been a huge success. Next years Junior Infants got to have experience the school and meet with their new Teacher. It was an excellent opportunity for both parents and children to get to know each other.
The children will experience some mornings in the classroom on Monday the 17th and Tuesday the 18th of June and will be invited to participate in the school fun sports day on June 19th.
