6th Class Barbeque

On Friday 24th June a barbeque and disco were held in school for 6th class pupils and their parents.  It was a really enjoyable evening, even if the weather wasn’t great.  6th class enjoyed the disco and later sang for their parents.

We wish 6th class all the best for the future and we’re sorry to be saying good bye to some families that have had  a long association with the school.

Author Visit

Senior Infants and First Class visited Ballyroan Library today for a author visit by Dolores Keaveney.  Dolores is a beekeeper as well as an author.  She told us all about how bees collect pollen and nectar.  She showed us her bee-keeping suit and the smoke gun she uses to make the bees drowsy.  She read to us from her book about bees and then from her book called ‘The Scary Spider’.  She told us she paints all the illustrations herself.  She read to us from her books about hens and we loved her story about a little chick called Hungry.  (These books are available in the library). We sang songs and then we drew pictures about what we had seen on a very long paper  tablecloth.  It was great fun!  Thank you to Dolores and to Emma at the library who organised this.
