South East Radio/ Talbot Hotel Outstanding Achievement of the month Award.



Enda Morris, Principal of Ballyellis National School, Askamore was taken by surprise on Wednesday morning last when Alan Corcoran, South East Radio, awarded him Outstanding achievement  for  the Month for November on behalf of the school.


He was nominated for this award by Mick and Mairéad Kinsella, Pat and Ann Butler and James and Margaret Tomkins for his quick thinking and caring response after an unfortunate accident near the school involving their children, Aoife, Kate and Karen, past pupils of the school.


It is a great testament to the school’s caring ethos, that the former students and parents felt able to seek help from the local school.  It was because of Mr. Morris and his staff’s prompt and appropriate response to the incident that they were nominated for this well deserved reward.

Well done and Congratulations to Mr Enda Morris and all the staff in Ballyellis.
