Stand Up Week 2022

Thank you to all who made our Stand-Up Awareness Week a successful, inclusive week! All year groups had an SPHE class on terminology and the key message was about kindness and using words that heal not hurt. Everyone wore colourful outfits today for Rainbow Day and congratulations to Aisling O Brien, Sophie Allen, Evan Molyneux and Mrs Parke for the most colourful outfits. Thank you to Ms Simpson and her student helpers for co-ordinating the week’s events.

School Enrolment and Open Day

We were delighted to welcome all the 6th class students from the various local primary schools to Ballinamore Community School. The students got to sample some of the subjects on offer, got a tour of the school and learn more about the extra-curricular activities happening here in BCS.
Special thanks to Mr Mullen for planning and co-ordinating the event, to all the staff and subject departments for their displays and a big thank you to the 5th year prefects and all the students who helped out. They showed great student leadership skills and were great ambassadors for the school. We are so lucky to have a mighty group of students here in Ballinamore CS. 😊

Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the day and made a great effort to speak Irish throughout the day. Ag súil go mór leis an mbliain seo chugainn. Beatha teanga í a labhairt! 🇮🇪 #Gaeilge24

LC Geography Geographical Investigation, Glencar

6th year Geography students with their teacher Ms. Lee visited Glencar Valley and waterfall today to complete the fieldwork for their geographical investigation.
Students had a busy day collecting and recording data at a meander on the Glencar River. Overall it was a very educational and enjoyable day. Students will now take the information gathered back to the classroom for further analysis and discussion in order to complete their geographical investigation.
