Extra-Curricular Achievements

The children of Ballyglass have been very busy developing their skills outside of the classroom. The Junior and Senior Quiz team competed in the Kilchreest NS Quiz in January. The Junior team came second after a tie-breaker at the end. The Senior team ended up in fourth place. Then in the Gort Credit Union quiz, both teams finished in 3rd place. There were some very tough questions on the night, and they represented the school excellently. Well done to all involved!

The 5th and 6th class students held a Spelling Bee in the classroom as part of the Eason's/2FM National Spelling Bee. BriĆ³n emerged the winner in the school and went on to represent the school in Scoil Einde in Salthill for the County Finals. He finished 3rd in the county, which was a brilliant achievement!

Finally, Shauna has been busy competing in sports and athletics events thoughout the year. Last weekend, she went to Clontarf where she was awarded Athlete of the year on the track. Well done Shauna!
