Talent by the Shannon
Our show “Talent by the Shannon” was a tremendous success. The acts that took part were all of a very high standard and the audience thoroughly enjoyed the variety of talent on display. The opening act by the Pupils of Ballagh NS was a great success and was the perfect way to open a perfect night. Thanks to everyone who helped out in any way. Your continued assistance is greatly appreciated.
From Tuesday, 15th March, we held a flag-raising ceremony in the school.
The pupils of Ballagh wrote their own Proclamation which was read out by 5th class pupils. Sixth class pupils read the Proclamation from 1916. The children played the National Anthem on tin whistle and the flag was raised by the youngest and oldest pupil in the school – Leah Trimble Higgins and David Cullen.
We celebrated Grandparents Day on Tuesday, 2nd February, as part of Catholic Schools Week.
Grandparents travelled from near and far to celebrate with us. We held a prayer service and afterwards, the children performed for their grandparents, singing songs, reciting poems and playing tinwhistles.
