The Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal took place again this year.  Thank you to all families who contributed towards their appeal.



Red Kettle Drama

In our first debate on the 21st November, Ballyneale will be opposing the motion that ‘People should be fined for not recycling’.

In our second debate Ballyneale will be proposing the motion that ‘The Goal to end world hunger will be achieved by 2030’.
