Sports Day 2017

Sports Day was held at the Man O War GAA pitch which is a great facility . A big thank you to Kevin Murphy and Dermot Sheridan who have looked after us for the last two years.

Active Week 2017

Active Week at Balrothery NS was full of fun and activity. Thank you to Ms Kiernan and Ms Kilcoyne who organised Wake and Shake, fun PE lessons and a talk from a nutritionist. We all enjoyed the week that also included Walk to School and a great Sports Day at the Man O War GAA Club. It is a great facility and we appreciate having its use.

Buddy Bench

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 our 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.

Bench Buddy

Thank you to Joyce Denver for giving the school a bench that belonged to her Grandmother. She lovingly restored it and now the children love to sit under the tree for a rest and a chat. It's now the Bench Buddy for the junior end of the school.

We also have purchased another Buddy Bench for the pupils in the senior end of the school.
