Ballyhaunis Community School is holding a major fundraiser on Friday 3rd March in the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris. All funds raised will go towards the refurbishment of the school that is currently underway.
Based on the popular TV show “Who wants to be a Millionaire” the “Thousandaire” show is a fun filled event where 8 lucky contestants get the opportunity to win a thousand euro.
Tickets are €20 each or 4 for €60.
Please come along and support for what promises to be a great occasion.
During the past few weeks our amazing students have raised an incredible €1,295 for the local St. Vincent de Paul and MSPCA charities, two very worthwhile causes. The monies were raised by the BCS Folk Choir, led by Ms Glavey, whose Carol Singing performances delighted the crowds around Ballyhaunis in recent weeks. Mrs Macken & Mrs Murphy’s TY students Candy Cane sales and Mrs O’Reilly and her 5B LCVP class, through their Jumper Day initiative, combined to give a total donation of €1,295.
Well done to the 5A LCVP Class who, with the help of their teacher Mrs. Loftus, organised a table quiz for all first years on the 15th December. The Leaving Certificate Mentors also took part in the event. They made €150 which was donated to the local branch of the Saint Vincent de Paul. The money was presented to Mrs. Lyons by Colleen Manning and Williams Ganly.
The winners of the table quiz were Sean Caulfield, Arooj Azhar, Matthew Frayne, Marina Carney (Mentor), Lana Biesty, Claire Flanagan. In second place were Eleanor Harrison (Mentor), James McCormack, Shane Reidy, Ellen Tener, Megan Ronane and Danielle Coyne (Mentor). In third place were Bernadette Staunton, Daniel Regan, Umar Tayyab, Eilis O’Brien, Thomas Doherty (Mentor) and Eoin Delaney (Mentor).
Congratulations to Roisín Cassidy, 5th year, who was recently selected as a finalist to compete in the Irish Science Olympiad. Roisín was selected from students all over the country, based on the excellent results she achieved in Science and Mathematics in her Junior Cert.
Congratulations to our TY students on the completion of a Fetac Level 5 First Aid course. They all received a distinction. The students also received a First Responder Certificate as part of the course. A big ‘thank you’ to their instructor Mr Gerry Higgins for all his time and effort and also Mr Woolley for facilitating the course. Hopefully the students will be able to put their new skills to good use if ever called upon. Well done to all concerned.
