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.
