Enrolments for term 2 of after-school activities

Enrolments for Term 2 of after-school activities open on Monday (22 January) at 8pm, and close on Wednesday (24 January) at 8pm.
Term 1 classes are concluding on 26 January and the first class of Term 2 will take place on Monday 29 January.

As in term 1, the payment will be split into a €10 online ‘booking fee’ payment to the PTA & school towards running costs of after-school activities and a cash payment directly to the teachers of the activities.
To enrol go to: https://bookwhen.com/northbaypta
after 8pm on Monday. For more information you can download the schoolbag note here.
If needed, page 2 of the schoolbag note contains detailed instructions on how to navigate the online booking system.
For support with enrolment or if online payment is an issue, contact Julia on 086 3393525 (ideally before enrolment opens) and she will be able to help.

Yoga has now been split into a junior (1st-3rd) and a senior (4th-6th) class. Guitar is being offered again after the activity was paused last term due to lack of participants. Knitting is unfortunately no longer available.

New class coordinators are required for Guitar, Dance and Chess. The enrolment form contains a question for parents to indicate if they can take over the coordination of an activity (it’s not work-intensive and you do not have to be present at the school). Please be aware that the activities may not go ahead if no coordinators come forward. If your children enjoy the activities, please consider to volunteer to keep the classes going.

We wish you all a great second term.

Your PTA team

Are you looking for a choir for your child? Information and application form below.

Message from RTE’s Cór na Óg:

RTÉ’s Cór na nÓg are running their annual auditions on  23, 24 and 25 February 2018, and would be grateful if you could bring the enclosed information to children and parents. As always we are particularly encouraging boys to join the choir – we have a very lively group of them at present and any new boys would be made very welcome! This year we are taking slightly younger children than in previous years, from age 9 upwards.

The choir offers great opportunities for performance and vocal development as well as being great fun and an enjoyable social outlet. We have got to know many families over our 30 years and it has been wonderful to see how music has become such an important and enriching part of their children’s lives.

Interested families can fill in and return the enclosed app form, or apply online through the RTÉ.ie website in the RTÉ Cór na nÓg  “Sing With us” section at:

Thank you for supporting North Bay’s Annual Fundraising Winter Fair

Posted in News |


We hope you are all looking forward to the Winter Fair on Sunday from 12:30 – 4:30 pm

Thanks for all the donations of toys, books, bric-a-brac, nut-free chocolate and clothing – some very nice items there! If anyone still has items to donate, please bring in and leave in the area behind the Shared Areas (room after blue box for those who are unclear).

Now that we have all this great stuff – we have to set it up and be ready for Sunday from 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

We’re appealing to volunteers. If you can spare some time to help move tables, set up the stalls, etc. we’d gladly welcome extra helpers TODAY RIGHT AFTER SCHOOL.

We’re also going to open the school tomorrow, SATURDAY FROM 1:30 – 3:30 pm to do any final touches so if you are free then, please do pop by and offer your assistance.

Finally on Sunday, while the fair starts at 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm, we’ll be there from 10:30 am onwards so if you find you have some free time, please pop in as there are always small jobs which need completing.

And for all those bakers, any nut-free baked goods are always welcome at the Cake stall – just bring with you the day of the event.

Come hungry the International Food table will be covered with amazing dishes from all our talented families.

As always any last minute questions, please reach out to Northbayfundrasing@gmail.com or via text 087 940 2755
