Fifth Class Engineering Trip

Fifth Class were recently treated to a fantastic trip to the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy Environmental Research Institute, Beaufort Building, University College Cork which is based in Ringaskiddy. The trip was organised by Steam Education along with their industry partners DePuy Synthes. Engineers from De Duy have been rolling out a fantastic programme called  Engineering in a Box in our class this year. We are very grateful to Alice Darcy from Steam Education and Aoife Deane of MaREI for organising this memorable trip and all at De Puy who have been so kind to us over the last year. You really are inspiring the next generation of Engineers here in Shanbally!!

Thanks to Fr Sean for being so accommodating and letting us perform our concert in the church.

Cara Awards

On Thursday November 30th in Dublin, Shanbally NS was announced as the Cara National Award winner in the Education Sector. This award recognised those who enhance participation opportunities for people with disabilities in sport, physical activity and physical education. This category encompasses all levels of education, primary, secondary and third level. This award is the culmination of many years of commitment by staff to the promotion of a culture of inclusion and excellence in Shanbally NS. We are delighted for this recognition after many years of hard work in this area. It takes a long time to develop such a culture of inclusion and for it to become second nature to us all. This award is a tribute to the partnership between the children, staff, parents and wider community of Shanbally NS past and present. We are finalising plans for an in-school celebration on this Thursday so there will be no homework that night.
