We are blessed here with fantastic modern facilities in Balla NS.
Our state of the art, bright, airy classrooms have interactive white-boards, store-rooms and en-suite toilets.
We have a large General Purpose (GP) room and our own pitch at the back of the school. On occasion we make use of the AstroTurf and playground facilities that are very close to the school.
We have three playgrounds including a recently upgraded basketball court. These are all nicely decorated for the children.
Balla National School has a suite of laptops and a trolley of iPads for the classes to use. In 2016 we were awarded Digital School of Distinction status. The school were represented in the Excited Festival of Digital Learning in Dublin Castle in 2016 by some of the 5th class pupils.
