Darragh Cotter lives locally, attended Ballyagran N.S. many years ago and now hurls for Castletown/Ballyagran GAA and has represented Limerick at underage level, most recently a member of the Munster All-Ireland winning U21 Limerick panel. It was a great occasion having Darragh visit the school and a very proud moment for him, his family and the teachers who taught him during his time in Ballyagran NS.
6th class take the reigns every year to advertise, organise and operate the Christmas Jumble Sale in aid of charity. On completion, 6th class sit down in the calm of the month of January to set out which charities will benefit from the proceeds. It is an exciting time for the children in charge and marks a coming of age in their Primary School lives. Have a glance at the photos below to get a glimpse into the preparations as 6th class pupils begin the unenviable task of trawling through the donations of toys, books, games and DVDs to set up their sale for tomorrow!
In September, we had a visit to the school from the Science Dome. The Science Dome is a mobile planetarium that visits schools all over Ireland. The Parents' Association part funded the visit and Mrs. Barry made sure they got here on time and all ran smoothly. Thank you very much as it was a fantastic day for all pupils to enjoy.
