Climate Action Week

This week is ‘Climate Action Week’ which is organised by Green-Schools Ireland.

We are currently working towards our 4th green flag award for ‘Travel’. As part of climate action week and to help offset our carbon footprint we decided to plant some new flowers and trees in our school garden.

On Wednesday the senior room re-planted our window boxes with lovely winter flowers and also set some new shrubs in our sensory garden.

On Friday, each class planted a new tree outside. We can’t wait to watch them grow over the next few years.

Have a look at some pictures of all our gardening!

Maths Week

This week we have been taking part in ‘Maths Week Ireland’.

As part of this, we have been busy doing lots of extra maths activities. We went on some maths trails outside, played maths games each day and even completed some maths inspired symmetrical art.

Have a look at some pictures from ‘Maths Week’.

Football Training

Thank you to Denise from Shrule Glencorrib GAA Club who visits us once a week for football training.

We are all really enjoying it and are learning lots of new football skills.

Have a look at a few pictures of our training.

Welcome An Taoiseach!

Last week we were delighted to welcome An Taoiseach, Leo Varadker, to our parish.

It was an honor to get an opportunity to showcase to him all of the fantastic work that we do here in Glencorrib N.S.

A big well done to Eleanor and Millie who read their wonderful poem to him, entitled ‘If I was Taoiseach For a Day’. The girls did an amazing job and we are all very proud of them.

Have a look at some pictures from the night!
