Ms O Mahony is co-ordinating Food Dudes along with Joyce Denver. Between them each day fruit and vegetables are distributed to each class. The junior end of the school will taste/eat different fruit and vegetables for 16 days while the senior end of the school will taste/eat for 8 days.

Science Week 2017

The students of Balrothery NS had a great Science Week. Each class carried out an experiment , then shared their learning experience with other classes. Sarah Callaghan kelly came and gave a workshop to 3rd and 4th class who now are watching  bacteria grow in their petri dishes.

The infants went on a trip to Imaginosity where they took part in a science workshop learning all about how their bodies work.

The senior end of the school designed rockets and launched them at school. The design and engineering of rockets was amazing. The junior end of the school designed and made aeroplanes. They likewise showed great imagination and scientific knowledge. Thank you to the parents for your help here. Hope you enjoyed it as well.

Bench Buddy

We held a special day at the school when we officially opened our Bench Buddy. The children raised money by having a Pyjama Day to buy a Bench Buddy. We decided that this would be a fitting tribute to out friend and colleague Tadhg O' Connor. Tadhg's family came , his mother Stephanie spoke and said that the bench was a lovely idea . It is a place where people can come and sit , chat and enjoy each other's company. This is something that Tadhg loved to do. Well done to Luadhán who cut the ribbon. Fr Eugene gave the bench a special blessing.It was lovely to see past members of staff who took them the time to be with us.A big thank you to all the staff and especially to Mrs Callaghan for her choir, Ms Markham for preparing her students to say a poem in Irish and to Ms Burns for preparing the school band. It all made for a wonderful celebration and a day we will all remember.
