On Tuesday, pupils, staff and parents gathered to celebrate the raising of our Green Flag for Travel. Ms. Dempsey, the Green School committee and Mr. McHale spoke about how the school and parents managed to earn the Green Flag for Travel.
Afterwards, special guest, Mark O’Meara a former pupil of Ballyneale and now Captain of the Tipperary Minor Football team helped raise the flag.
Well done to Ms. Dempsey and all the pupils and parents involved.
The raising of the Green Flag for Travel takes place next Tuesday the 12th June.
We will be collecting our 4th Green Flag on the travel initiative on Wednesday the 23rd May. We will have a ceremony in June to celebrate this fantastic achievement.
The Bug Hotel is currently under construction at the school. We will be filling the ‘rooms’ next week with various natural materials. If anyone has any of the following please bring it in next week.
- Pine cones
- bamboo canes
- fallen bark
- broken terracotta pots
Thank you to all those who have brought in materials already.
We are currently working towards our 4th Green Flag on travel. Today we had our Day of Action based on travel.
This morning we had our “Park and Stride” from Ballyneale Church at 9.10am.
There were prizes for the best dressed boy and girl relating to the travel theme and the pupils completed activities based on the travel theme today in school.
Thank you to all those who walked from the church this morning and to all those pupils and parents who made the effort to dress up today.
Park and Stride happens every Friday so we encourage you to take part. Park your car at the church at 9.10am and walk your child to school!
Winners for best dressed today were:
Isabella and Ryan Arrigan
