TY students had a fantastic workshop on découpage delivered by Tarragh from The Craft Cabin in Ballyconnell last week, where they learned how to up-cycle anything using simple printed papers. A highly enjoyable workshop and thanks to Miss Cooney for organising.
Well done to TY student Molly Prior whose project “A statistical analysis on the effect of Rural Decline on People’s Well-being was highly commended at the recent BT Young Scientist Exhibition at the RDS in Dublin. Molly hard work over the previous few months together with her highly effective communication style impressed the judges greatly. Well done Molly.
Congratulations to Edel Shanley in 6th Year who has been selected to play for Connacht PPS team in 2020. This is a wonderful achievement and is a just reward for her dedication, hard work and her outstanding football ability. Edel has represented her school, Ballinamore CS with distinction in her 6 years. She follows in the footsteps of her cousin Eimhin who was captain of the Connacht team in 2018 and indeed two other past pupils, namely Laura O’ Dowd in 2011 and Katie Mc Nulty in 2019.
Well done Edel
Ms Colum brought the TY class to Ballinamore Community Garden. Kay Maguire and Eamon Smith showed the students the polytunnels. Students got to look at plants such as nasturtiums, strawberry plants, borage, kale among many other plants. Companion planting is carried out at the garden and students saw many examples of companion planting.
