Presentation of Awards

We can’t believe that another school year has come to an end. We had a fantastic and fun-filled year.

There was great excitement in school today, on our last day, as the pupils with the highest levels of attendance for the school year received awards for their fantastic achievement. Well done to everyone!

We would like to wish everyone a wonderful and safe summer and we are looking forward to seeing you all again in September!

Graduation Awards

As always, the excitement on our last day of school was tinged with sadness, as we bid farewell to our two wonderful 6th class girls, leah and Isabelle.

We will miss them both but wish them continued success and happiness as they graduate from national school and move into a new and exciting chapter of their lives in secondary school.



Fun in the Garden!

Today we harvested all of the lovely vegetables from our veg patch.

We all have full bags of carrots, parsnips and cabbage to bring home and cook for dinner tonight!

We were also surprised to see that our rhubarb had re-grown again, so we got to pick some of this to bring home also. Yummy!

A Successful Opening of Footsteps Pre-School

We had a wonderful day last Friday for the official opening of Footsteps Pre-School at Glencorrib N.S.

The Pre-School has been completely refurbished over the past couple of weeks and is now a wonderful, bright and fun place for children to blossom. We are all really looking forward to welcoming all the new pre-school children in September.

We also raised our third green flag on Friday. This year we were honored to have the most senior past pupil, Nelly Sheridan, raise our flag together with one of our new entrants for September 2017, Ciara Shaughnessy.

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported both Glencorrib school and Footsteps pre-school.

A fun and enjoyable day was had by all.

School tour to Dublin Zoo!

Bright and early last Thursday morning, we all boarded the train in Claremorris, set for one of our most exciting school tours yet, Dublin Zoo!

We had great fun on the train playing lots of games, but we couldn’t wait to arrive in Heuston Station and make our way to the zoo.

Shortly after 11am we arrived at the zoo. We were greeted by one of their lovely tour guides who brought us on our very own tour of the African Plains. In the African Plains we got to see and learn about lots of animals, including the giraffes, zebras, monkeys, rhinos and many more. It was really interesting and exciting!

After our tour, we had a little picnic in the zoo before we set off on another trip around with our teachers. We got to see the elephants, reptile house, tigers, flamingos, spotted dogs, among many others!

We had such a great day and loved meeting all the animals!

Have a look at our cool pictures from the trip!

Student of the Month – June

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 Luke as our ‘Student of the Month’. Luke received a medal for his wonderful achievement and was presented with the ‘Student of the Month’ trophy which he will display on his desk for the month of June.

Congratulations and well done to Luke on his well deserved award!


Rounders Activity Day

Last week, the senior room travelled to the centre of excellence in Bekan for a rounders activity day.

We learned all about the rules and skills involved in the game of rounders.

There were lots of other schools from all around Mayo there, and we got to play a couple of games against some of them.

We had a really enjoyable day and are looking forward to practicing rounders in school over the coming weeks.

Cumann na mBunscol County Semi-Final

Congratulations to our girls’ football team who have been on a winning streak lately.

Last week they played in the Cumann na mBunscol county semi-final in McHale Park in Castlebar. They played against Killawalla N.S. but unfortunately lost after a very close match.

To get to this stage was a fantastic achievement for the girls and we are very proud of them.

Well done to all involved.
