Cake sale-Friday 24th October

Paint it PinkHere’s some loom band creations made by students on sale next Friday at the cake sale! All proceeds going towards the Irish Cancer Society’s breast cancer awareness campaign and C.A.R.E cancer support group.

C.A.R.E Talk

A big thank you to Anne Kennedy from C.A.R.E cancer support group who gave a very informative talk to the 5th and 6th class students. C.A.R.E is one of the charities we will be supporting through our cake sale next Friday the 24th of October. Anne spoke about the importance of supporting those who have a cancer diagnosis through counselling and alternative therapies available at the C.A.R.E centre on Wellington Street in Clonmel. Their service is free and they rely entirely on donations, so Ballyneale school is delighted to support them next Friday.
