As part of the Green School initiative, the student council recently unveiled a new water font. This initiative aims to cut down on single use plastics in the school as students are encouraged to refill their reusable bottles at the new font.
Over the last month, members of the student council attended the Comhairle na nÓg AGM and organised a fancy dress event at Halloween. We had an Odd Sock Day in aid of North West STOP, while TYs were away for a trek up Croagh Patrick and also engaged in Eucharistic Ministry training.
Mr McCaffrey presented €11,695 to Pieta house today on behalf of the committee, student council and wider community. Massive thanks again to all our volunteers and supporters who made our event in May such a huge success.
We had such a truly memorable beginning for Darkness into Light Ballinamore. The community came together in their hundreds to walk, everyone walking for many different reasons. The wonderful sea of yellow leaving the school grounds, each carry a Candle of Hope, was incredible and emotional.
Thank you for supporting Pieta House.
Thank you for remembering: There is Light in Darkness and Hope in Despair.
Thank you to our incredible committee, without whom the idea wouldn’t have come to fruition.
Thank you our sponsors.
Thank you to An Garda Siochana.
Thank you to the Civil Defence.
