Recently, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class took a trip to Ericssons Athlone. We had a wonderful day and learned lots about coding, and internet security. We toured their facilities and got first hand experience of what a day in the life of an Ericsson’s engineer looks like.
As always, Halloween was Spooktacular in Ballinahown N.S. We all dressed up in school and played Halloween games. Some of us were scared by our own reflections! The Scarecrow festival was a huge success. A big thank you to everyone who made a scarecrow and to the Parents association who put huge effort into running the event. Míle Buíochas!!!!!
Seasons Greetings !! After a very busy few weeks in the lead up to Christmas, we were so proud of the performances of all of our boys and girls in the Christmas play. Even the elf must have been watching, as when we returned to school the next morning , the classrooms were destroyed, toilet roll hung everywhere, glitter on every surface, as the elf left clues for a treasure hunt. Great fun was had by all. Huge thank you to parents for all your support in our Christmas activities.
