This week the mural was finally erected on the back of the school shelter on the Rossmore Road. It is bright, beautiful and absolutely massive! It is 24 foot long and 8 foot high. Altogether it took 12,400 bottle tops to make the mural! It depicts our view of Ballineen Bridge with Enniskeane village on one side and Ballineen village on the other side. It shows some of the wildlife that we are lucky enough to see from our playground - herons and swans. We hope it brings a smile to the faces of passersby to see what we have created from their rubbish. The parents and staff are extremely proud of the children's wonderful achievement.

A big thank you to the members of our local community who helped to collect plastic bottle tops for us, the response was incredible! For months people have delivered bags of bottle tops to the school and it was very much appreciated.

Photographs of the pupils of Ballymoney National School at the ‘Bandon River Biodiversity Day’ organised by Carbery in the Butterfly Garden on Friday 28th May. The pupils enjoyed a talk by Catherine Seale who is a community water officer with Cork County Council. They also got to see some insects that are living in the river and enjoyed a walk around the park looking at the different biodiversity signs. A big thank you to Aoife Feeney and her colleague Orla from Carbery who kindly organised the event and donated some pollinator plants to our school garden.

We celebrated Europe Week this week. We joined Emmanuelle for a Zoom quiz on Monday. We did some collaborative art on Tuesday and each pupil coloured in 2-3 pages. On Wednesday we wore blue to school and we decorated some buns with blue icing, yellow stars and flags. On Thursday we shared some interesting facts about our chosen EU countries and played Ode to Joy on the Boomwhackers and recorders. On Friday we did some map work and played games. We enjoyed all of the activities.
