The newly upgraded Ballyhaunis School App is now available as a free download from the itunes and Playstores. The new APP takes very little space (approx. 45MB) and is a very useful tool in keeping up to date with the latest school activities. The App allows for instant access to the Schools Website and Facebook/Twitter pages. There is also a valuable bank of resources such as exam papers/solutions, exam tips and lots more. We intend to continue to build this App and use it as an integral platform to communicate between the school and the wider community so we encourage everyone to download it.
