Annual Walk and Sports Day in Ballyglass NS

On Friday the 20th June, the Parent Association of Ballyglass National School held an annual fun walk for the school community. Around 100 parents and children were present on the day, and at 9.30am, they set out on their walk from the school to the water treatment plant at Emlagh and back again - a total of 6km. 

Following the walk, everyone was treated to cakes, sweets, drinks, sandwiches, tea and coffee and ice cream, graciously donated by local businesses and many parents from the school. 

At 11.30 am, our school sports day began which was equally as successful and as enjoyable as the annual walk.

Thank you to all who attended on the day, to all those who donated, and especially to the many parents and the Parent Association who worked tirelessly at making the day a huge success. 

Great Attendance in Ballyglass NS

Well done to the pupils who received Gold, Silver and Bronze Attendance Awards for the school year 2018-2019.
