BCSN (Ballinamore Community School News) is Ballinamore Community School’s online student newspaper, founded and edited by the Transition Year class.
BCSN provides an internet platform for all BCS students to report and discuss the news that matters most to them as well as valuable work experience for the TY class group.
At first, BCS’s TY students intend to write and edit the content that appears on this site across a range of sections, including news (school, local, national, and international), opinion, sport, entertainment, lifestyle, agriculture, and more.
However, they look forward to receiving unsolicited articles and contributions from all BCS students (and their teachers!) in the near future.
We hope BCSN will be an informative, interesting read for all BCS students past, present, and future — not to mention their families, friends, and the wider community.
We look forward to bringing you new, topical content as often as we can.

Our TY group finally got out on the water to begin their 6 week ‘Paddles Up’ kayaking Programme in conjunction with Leitrim Sports Partnership. The weather over the last few weeks had meant that the programme had to be put on hold until today, but it was worth the wait as the TYs had a great time out on the canal, despite the cold!
Our Ty group braved the elements to make it ot the summit of Croagh Patrick on Tuesday, 29th September. A great achievement to make it to the top and it provided an opportunity for students to test their stamina while also allowing space and time for some reflection and mindfullness! Thanks to Mr Kane and Ms Stenson for making the journey with the students.
