Day of Action

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:
