Welcome to Ballinrobe Community School

Welcome to Ballinrobe Community School’s website, I hope you find it informative and that it will provide you with a sense of the school and its ethos. The school opened its doors in September 1990 as a result of the amalgamation of the three second level schools in the town. Since then we have welcomed the students from the surrounding area and endeavoured to ensure that each one of them leaves school as a confident, mature and resilient young adult, equipped to deal with the challenges ahead.

Our Mission Statement encompasses the values of respect, inclusion and care. These are evident in the warm and welcoming atmosphere in the school where positive relationships ensure that students can develop in a safe and caring environment.

We have gained a reputation as a progressive school, constantly evolving to improve the student experience. We are very proud of our academic record and each year celebrate the successes of our students. We are cognisant of each student’s ability and context but set high expectations for all students and ensure that they achieve their potential with the support of a dedicated and hardworking teaching staff. We offer students a comprehensive range of subjects through our wide curriculum at both Junior and Senior levels

We have a very dedicated staff, freely giving their time to offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities; students are encouraged to be actively involved as we believe their participation provides them with a real sense of belonging and affords further opportunities for growth as individuals.

As Principal, I am very proud of the efforts and achievements of all at Ballinrobe Community School, the students, the teaching and ancillary staff all working together in an atmosphere of respect. I am dedicated to maintaining and improving every aspect of this school.

Principal

TY Workshop: Fashion Focus

Introduction
On the 14th of January, 2020, Laura-Kate, a guest speaker from the environmental youth group, Eco UNESCO conducted a workshop with Transition Year students. The afternoon workshop focused primarily on how fashion is associated with the environment and tackled topics such as climate change, ethics, and the effects the manufacturing process of clothes has on the environment.

Synopsis of the workshop
Students listened to Laura-Kate’s presentation and learned a lot of information. She engaged well with the audience, made everyone involved and gave everyone a voice.

The TY students were split up into 4 groups and were each given an item of clothing. The aim of that activity was to figure out where the item of clothing was made, what materials it was made from, how that article of clothing may have been manufactured and what impacts its manufacturing has had on the environment. At the end of that activity, each group had to nominate someone in their group to share their findings with the room.

After that, Laura-Kate showed the TY’s a video about the manufacturing process of clothes and its impacts on the environment. The video contained many facts and it made people realise the effect their fashion choices have on the environment.

Then, the TY’s discussed in their groups ways they can help prevent climate change with fashion. Like the previous activity, a speaker from each group presented their thoughts to the room.

Lastly, the students learned about the importance of upcycling unused clothes and reducing waste. Each students had a t-shirt from the local charity shops, which they upcycled to create a tote bag.

This workshop was funded by Mayo County Council.
