Grandparents Day 2016
Grandparents Day took place in Ballyglass NS on Monday 13th June 2016. It was wonderful to see the grandparents who had travelled from near and far to attend the special celebration. The children performed Irish and hip-hop dancing, recited poems, played their tin whistles and displayed the projects they had created about their grandparents before finally finishing with a rendition of 'Galway Girl'. Former Ballyglass NS principal Mr. Tom O'Doherty spoke to the grandparents and shared with them the history of the school. After the performances, the grandparents were able to meet together and enjoyed tea and refreshments. It was a very enjoyable afternoon and many thanks to all those who attended. Special thanks to the Parents Association who organised the refreshments and to those who provided baked goods.
