We celebrated Christmas at Balrothery NS. Thank you to the Balrothery Community Council for the lovely Christmas Tree. There was great excitement when Santa arrived at school and visited each class. Every child received a bar of chocolate. Santa drew the winning tickets to the Christmas raffle organised by the Parents' Commitee. There were great prizes for each class.Thank you to everyone for their generous support with this.
Christmas is a time for giving and this year we collected backpacks and items for the homeless. The Parents' Committee had a food collection for SVP. Well done everyone.
The Christmas Carol Service was a lovely festive night. The 6th class performed the Christmas story. The choir were brilliant under the direction of Mrs Callaghan and with musical accompaniment by Ms Maher, Mr Hall and Ms Dyas. The school band played their festive melodies, thank you to Ms Byrne for teaching the children.
