Open Night in Ballyhass N.S.
We had a great open night on the 13th of March for the children starting school next school year. It was very well attended.The children from 5th and 6th classes brought the parents on a guided tour of the school. The Parents' Association provided teas and refreshments on the night. The children from 5th class played music and the crowd were very appreciative. We look forward to meeting them and working with the parents next school year .
Peter Gunning's Visit
The author Peter Gunning visited the school in February. He spoke to the 3rd and 4th class about his book Stanley and spoke to 5th and 6th class about his book Reaching the Heights. He gave an inspirational talk about his life and about how he started writing. The children were in awe of him and asked wonderful questions. He spoke of how respectful and motivated the children of Ballyhass were.
Cooking All Stars
Mrs O' Sullivan's 4th and 5th class are taking part in Cooking All Stars organised by Super Valu. As part of this initiative the school was given cooking equipment by Super Valu. They have cooked scrambled eggs and cheesy quesadillas and really enjoyed making and eating their foods.
Grandparents' Day was recently celebrated in school. Many grandparents visited the school and enjoyed the prayer service and tea and coffee in the hall.
