Welcome to Ballyfinnane National School

Scoil Naomh Carthach

The pupils of Ballyfinane N.S. have been very fortunate to benefit from the generous funds raised in last April's Ballyfinane Cycle. The fundraiser was the main event run by the Parent's Association last year. The event took place on April 5th 2014 with just over 320 cyclists taking part in the event. Funds raised were spent on a new Interactive Whiteboard for the Junior room, 2 new computer tablets for the school, purchase of a whole Comprehension Reading Scheme for all pupils as well as other ancillary items.            


Pictured here are the pupils saying a very big 'Thank You' to all who took part in the event. Our Parent's Association are hoping to run another cycle event in April 2015.

Last week, Garda Murphy from Castleisland visited us at Ballyfinane N.S. to speak to us about his job as a Garda and what it entails. Garda Murphy showed us his uniform and all the items on his belt that he uses when necessary such as the handcuffs, pepper spray, baton, torch and his walkie talkie.
