Despite the rain and a hasty move indoors the school still performed a great drama about how Ballyconnell got its name as part of the opening a the new plaza area. It was a great way to finish the year.
Congratulations to pupils of Ballyconnell Central school for notable success in the Windows National Poetry Competition. With over a thousand entries Ryan, Mellissa, Alannah, Andrew, and Max and Ben received certificates at a special ceremony at Cavan Crystal Hotel for making the top hundred. More excitement followed when Laura Tilson came second in the Junior English category and third in the Irish poems, a fantastic effort. Minister Heather Humphreys was in attendance to help give out the awards.
Many thanks to all who came to support our quiz night organised by the Parents Teachers Association. It was a brilliant night with a great turnout and lots of fun. It was superbly organised and the school are very grateful to parents for organising such a great evening.
