Under-13 County Final

The under-13 county final took place today in Cashel.

Under-13 Team

The team had been training hard and won some good matches on the way to the final. However Ballyneale were beaten by Rosegreen, in what was a very physical game.

They had some fantastic support on the day from the Ballyneale N.S supporters. Congratulations to Rosegreen and to Ballyneale’s under-13 team for getting so far in the competition.

Green Flag Raising

Today we raised our second Green Flag for energy awareness. Ms. Dempsey and the Green School Committee spoke to staff, parents, pupils and members of the community about the Green School initiative and how we as a school worked towards achieving this flag. After the raising of the flag, parents were invited to teas and coffees in the staffroom. Thank you to all those who supported today’s event.
