Summer Camp 2015

We have just finished the first 3 days of our summer camp and what a way to end the week with a trip to the beach. The children had an excellent time and also took part in a sand castle competition. Below are some photos of us enjoying the beautiful weather at Balbriggan beach.

Choirs Trip

As another school year draws to a close, so too does the choir activity for the year. The choirs in BETNS all rehearse during lunch time so it requires immense commitment. However it’s always fantastic to see so many boys and girls choosing to take advantage of this great opportunity afforded to them. As a reward for their dedication, our junior, middle and senior choirs got the opportunity to participate in a musical theatre and hip hop workshop. We learned a piece from the Matilda musical about ‘Revolting Children’ that was really fun to perform and also a funky routine to Uptown Funk! It was a fantastic day and all of the children represented themselves and the school with aplomb. Well done everyone!

End of Year Staff Treats

It’s the end of the year and one of our favourite jobs in the Parents Association rolled around again.  The End of Year Treats for the wonderful staff at BETNS.
