The Annual Book Fair was held at the school from 28th November to 2nd December.  We sold €800 worth of books.  We get €320 of our takings to buy books for the library/class novels.

St. Vincent de Paul

St. Vincent de Paul have started their Christmas food appeal. Last Christmas, through the generosity of people in the areas surrounding Carrick on Suir they were able to distribute 85 hampers to those in need.

The student council are organising the collection of non-perishable goods for the Christmas food appeal, the hamper is located just inside the entrance. This hamper will be collected by St. Vincent de Paul on Friday, 16th December.

ShoeBox Appeal 2016


Once again, the national drive for Christmas Shoe Box Appeal is in full flow. Here in the school we have been collecting Shoe boxes from all the generous donors. We reached a total of 68 boxes.

A big thank you to all those who donated all those boxes of pure joy for someone this Christmas. Also thanks very much to Phelans Shoes who very generously supplied the shoeboxes.

In the pictures below, we have the children helping Gerry Dargan try to fit all those boxes in his car.


Cake Sale

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”.
