Thank you to the Parent’s Council who supplied the school with some outdoor playground games [Jenga, Connect 4 and Polydrons.] Every class has an opportunity at lunch time during the week to have some fun with these games. These activities are a great addition to the games already taking place at lunch times.
The Be Active After School Activity Programme for 1st and 2nd Class started this Wednesday. For the next 6 weeks pupils will be involved in game related station activities. Thank you to parents, Jean and Rebecca for giving their time to implement the programme. If any other parent would like to be involved, please contact Ms. Whelan at the school.
The County Finals in Spikeball take place on the 4th February in Moyle Rovers GAA Club in Fethard. This year we will have two mixed teams competing. Training takes place every Tuesday after school from 3-4pm for 3rd to 6th Class.
On Tuesday the 20th, pupils from 3rd to 6th Class travelled to Cahir and took part in the 7 a side soccer tournament. Ballyneale were up against the bigger schools of Carrick CBS, St. Peter and Pauls, The Monastery and Corville. We showed great potential on the day and can now look forward to the Littleton tournament. Thank you to Ian Sheehan who has been coaching the team and who will continue to do so for the next competition. There was great support from parents on the day.
Soccer training with Ian begins on Monday next [12th January] from 3 – 4pm after school.
Zumba for the junior classes and swimming for 3rd to 6th Class begin next week on Wednesday the 14th January.
