Members of staff were on hand to welcome visitors including Principal, James Roberts.
'It was a very positive night and we got very good feedback from parents,' said a school spokesperson.
The staff members were happy to answer any questions parents or guardians had and the visitors got to walk around the school to view it first-hand.
The school has an excellent reputation for the quality of teaching it provides its pupils and there is also a strong emphasis on creativity in Ballyhogue that was underlined on the night.
The pupils got the opportunity to highlight some of the extra-curricular activities they participate in including various sports programmes and healthy living initiatives. Refreshments were provided by the parents' association.
