4th Class Pupils perform Lunchtime Drama

The staff and pupils of Ballagh NS had a special treat recently, when the pupils of 4th class entertained us with a wonderful lunchtime drama. The pupils scripted the show, sourced their own props and costumes and even designed brochures. The performance took place on our Astro Turf and the name of the show was Goth Girl. Certainly an Oscar winning performance.
