This Christmas, the Green Schools team and the Student Council are encouraging everyone to have a Merry and an Eco-friendly Christmas. They have produced a Christmas card which has a range of Energy saving tips especially for Christmas time. Feel free to forward the Christmas card to family and friends as often as you like to wish all a happy Christmas and to keep the environment in mind during the festivities. Ballinamore CS is in the process of working towards our 7th Green Flag which involves Energy Conservation and Global Citizenship.

Healthy Living Week 2016

Healthy Living Week 2016 from Robert O’Reilly on Vimeo.

Healthy Living Week is a themed event that staff and students look forward to every year. This year a variety of events ran throughout the week to promote the area of health and wellbeing. Health and nutrition activities occurred in Home Economics lessons, students also cooked healthy breakfasts, made their own fruit smoothies and cooked gluten free dishes on one of the days to mark Coeliac Awareness Week which was a nationwide event occurring on the same week. Students examined cereal labels and there was plenty of discussion on the fibre and sugar contents of various cereals. The English Department ran a poetry and essay competition the theme being ‘Healthy Living’, Science classes focused on the area of digestion and dissection of hearts. In RE class students created mood boards titled ‘What makes me happy?’  and there was lots of physical activities and fun lunch time games. Tug of War, Volleyball, A Crossbar challenge with Mr Nolan, laughing yoga and fun circuit classes with Michelle Fanning were just some of the activities that were enjoyed by all. At break time Ms. Cooney gave out free smoothies, flapjacks, fruit and protein power balls to encourage healthy snacks containing fibre and fruit.  Mr Cunnane and Mr O Reilly participated in a cook off to show off their culinary creativity. A big thank you to the staff, student council members and TY students who helped Ms Cooney out with the various events.
