Welcome to Ballyfinnane National School

Scoil Naomh Carthach


As part of our current Green School's theme-Travel, we are encouraging all families to 'Walk on Wednesdays' (WOW) to school. This morning a pilot walk was organised by a number of parents starting from 'The Shanty'. The majority of all the families in our school walked which was fantastic! We were so heartened to see all the high vis vests coming into the school yard at 8.50am with some red faces and some very excited children (and parents!). 

 The walk to school initiative is linking in nicely with the 'Active Flag' which our school hopes to achieve over the next two years. See www.activeschoolflag.ie for more details. Next Wednesday, 14th October, is the official 1st 'WOW' day and Fiona Barry, Green School's Travel Officer will meet all children and families at the 'Shanty' to walk us to school. We will serve some hot chocolate as a treat next Wednesday morning. Looking forward to a great morning. A huge 'THANKS' to all families for getting on board with the new theme with such enthusiasm.
