Annual Christmas Hamper Raffle

Thanks to all the parents who volunteered to help with the Annual Christmas Hamper Raffle, raising awareness, making the hampers and wrapping….

There was a huge turnout for the raffle itself in Ms Whelan’s classroom. A lot of people went home with fantastic hampers, thanks to all who kindly donated items for the raffle.  It is important for the school that draws like this are supported, the money raised is used for the hiring of buses for swimming, out of school activities etc.

Thanks again

Carrick-on-Suir Library: Time Capsule 2016 – 2066

On Friday the 9th December Carrick-on-Suir Library celebrated their final 1916 centenary event. We’ve had a very busy year marking this special occasion and we were delighted to take part and contribute to a full programme of events in the Local Library.

The students and teachers of  Ballyneale, CBS Greenschool, Gaelscoil Carraig na Suire, Newtown Upper and Presentation Primary worked very hard  writing  letters and selecting the item for the time capsule and preparing a party piece for today’s event. Over 130 students took part in total.

The boys from CBS Green School sang two songs, Dying Rebel and Kevin Barry, accompanied by the accordian. Presentation girls sang Grace and were joined by our singers and guitarists (thank you Jane) for the final two verses. We also performed a 1916 drama directed by Mary O’Hanlon. While the Gaelscoil finished the festivities very fittingly with Amhran na Bhfiann.

The entire event was a huge success here are some photos of the occasion.

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”.
