We would like to thank Morley's Garden Centre for sponsoring this beautiful Christmas tree which has given us great joy this season. We really appreciate their generosity.
Past pupil Matthew came to visit today and brought with him this magnificent tree that he has constructed himself. He also made the reindeer. What amazing craftsmanship! Matthew is kindly gifting the tree to the school.
Go raibh mile maith agat!
The children from the school band and the school choir led by Mrs. Canney and Ms. Callaghan were delighted to perform in the church last weekend for the Sr. Francis musical appreciation concert. Sr. Francis taught her in St. Joseph's for many years and was involved in promoting all aspects of music. Well done to all involved. It was a fantastic experience to hear all that Ballinrobe has to offer!
See what's happening at school.
