Have you seen the fantastic song written by the teachers and pupils in Balla NS?
It’s bringing great excitement and fun to the parish community and worldwide this week! Super stuff! It will feature on RTE News on Friday 16th at 6 pm.
Well done to Mrs Egan and all the staff and children.

Fully resourced childcare facilities have been identified as a critical need within our community.
We have a top-class national school and an excellent secondary school in Balla. We also have a small preschool operating very successfully in Balla but accommodation has been limited to 22 children and it is estimated that demand will be significantly higher than this over the next few years.
The Management Committee of Balla CRD decided that ‘state of the art’ childcare facilities would be available in Balla Community Resource Centre from this September to accommodate up to 60 children in playschool and they are also very committed to the re-establishment of the after-school care facility.
We are really excited about this expansion and we know it will be of immense benefit to the town of Balla and the wider community for many years to come.
