Scríobh Leabhar

Pupils from 1st to 6th class were given the opportunity recently to take part in a wonderful project designed to promote reading and writing in Irish among young children. Scríobh Leabher is an initiative which allows primary school children to write, design and bind their own book – as gaeilge. Each and every book designed was wonderful but there could only be one winner from each class. Congratulations to everybody who took part and special congratulations to our winners – Tommy, Donal, AJ, Laoise, Phoebe and Anna. Winning entries are shown below and will appear on the Foras na Gaeilge website in due course.

St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations

Great fun today in Ballagh NS as we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day. A festival of Irish music, dance and singing gave everyone a chance to share their wonderful talents. We wish everyone a very happy St. Patrick’s Day 💚

Engineers Week

We were very busy during Engineers week completing our projects. The task for pupils was to construct a 3D playground design using recyclable materials and as you can see from the photos, there are some fantastic engineers in the making. Pupils in the Junior Room also made windmills and St. Patrick’s Day Decorations.
