Yesterday, Adrian Hession (the Hurling Officer for Mayo Cuman na mBunscoil) visited our school with the Nicky Rackard cup.
The Nicky Rackard cup is the third-highest senior inter-county championship overall in hurling. Mayo hurlers are the current champions of this fantastic title after their superb win over Armagh last June.
We were delighted to have had an opportunity to not only see, but raise the cup here in our school! Adrian also showed us the highlights of the final against Armagh. It was like being in Croke Park as we cheered for every Mayo score!
Adrian spent a little while demonstrating some hurling techniques and he really encouraged us to get involved in the sport. Watch this space for some future Glencorrib hurlers!
This year we have started a new initiative in our school – ‘Student of the Month’, which is aimed at encouraging a hard-working, helpful and positive atmosphere in our school.
This is a monthly award which will be presented to one chosen pupil at the end of each month.
The award will be presented to the pupil who is working the hardest, always trying their best, displaying kind and helpful behaviour, being polite and mannerly towards others and who helps to create a happy and positive atmosphere around our school on a daily basis.
This month we have chosen Chloe as our ‘Student of the Month’. Chloe received a medal for her wonderful achievement and was presented with the ‘Student of the Month’ trophy which she will display on her desk for the month of February.
Congratulations and well done to Chloe on her well deserved award!
