Some of our pupils were very lucky to be escorted to school by the Beat Fleet last Monday morning. We were delighted to be entertained by the crew and the children got lovely gifts also.. Thanks so much to Michaela for entering the Cool to School competition, it was a lovely treat for everyone returning after the midterm. #beatbreakfast #cool2school

We had a very busy day here in Ballyneale NS with our Cake Sale, which once again has proved to be a wonderful success.
Moneys raised this year is for Neuroblastoma Research and will greatly help their cause. We were delighted to have Annette, Kate and Anna Comerford here today, who are advocates for the said charity. Annette is taking part in the Marathon in Dublin this Monday fundraising for Neuroblastoma Research under the slogan “Running for a Cure”. Fair play and we wish her well!
We were delighted to help out in any way we can. A special word of thanks must go to Megan O’Meara who put the idea of Neuroblastoma Research forward as the charity of choice for our annual Cake Sale.
Have a look at the eventful day we had…
Finally, The winners of “Guess the weight of the Pumpkin”.
As a school we are taking part in the national drive for Christmas Shoe Box Appeal. Shoeboxes have been sent home with the children this week, inside which is a note explaining how it works. If you choose to take part, the Shoeboxes need to be back before or on Wednesday, November 9th.
Thanks very much to Phelans Shoes who very generously supplied the shoeboxes.
The Waterford drama group “Little Red Kettle” will be visiting the school on November 14th, from 12 – 1 p.m.
Drama lessons concluded with Amy Hill. The children enjoyed the six weeks of excitement and fun we had with Amy. We would like to say thanks to Amy, and secondly the Parents Association who had kindly subsidised these lessons.
We have been lucky to have been part of the artist in residence scheme. We have had Magueritte Kent to the school every Friday to share her skills and techniques with the children to produce a tapestry which will be displayed in the County Museum in Clonmel. The children’s work has been themed on the wildlife and seasons on the River Suir. Some photos to follow….
