On Thursday 20th October, there was nobody in school! We all left the classrooms and went down to Tintern Woods for a nature trail. Infants – 2nd Class headed off with Ms Roche and Ms Hyland, while 3rd – 6th went on a long trail with Mrs Furlong and Ms Walsh.
We spotted various trees, insects, birds, fungi and Mrs Waters! It was great to see her. We had our lunch in the courtyard of Tintern Abbey and then headed off in teams to collect specimens with our pooters.
When we returned, Mrs. Furlongs class made beautiful artwork with leaves, grasses and flowers in the style of artist Andy Goldsworthy. His art is made from nature!
The weather was glorious and we all had a wonderful time. Check out the photos to see what we saw!
We were all very excited in Ballycullane N.S. today because Gusserane O’Rahillys won the Wexford Senior Football Championship for the first time since 1974! Some of the team came to see us in the afternoon and brought the cup along too! They also brought us some treats, thanks lads!!
Well done from all of us here at Ballycullane N.S. We’re all very proud of you!
Best of Luck to the Gusserane O’Rahilly Senior Football team as they take on Glynn-Barntown in the County Final on Sunday 9th October in Wexford Park from all the children and staff here in Ballycullane N.S.
