Spring Nature Walk

Today we took part in a ‘Spring Nature Walk for Seachtain na Gaeilge’ organised by Green Schools Ireland.

It was a wonderful activity and we all really enjoyed exploring the school grounds as well as some other local areas in the village of Glencorrib. We found lots of interesting spring flowers, buds and even some lovely lambs!

We are currently working towards achieving our 5th green flag – biodiversity, and hope to complete many more nature walks over the coming months to search  for more native Irish flowers, trees and wildlife.

Have a look at some pictures from our day.

Festive Fun!

It has been a busy but fun couple of weeks at Glencorrib N.S preparing for Christmas.

Last week, the children had lots of fun creating some beautiful Christmas candle wreaths for their tables at home.

On Friday, we celebrated ‘Mayo Day’  ahead of the ‘All Ireland Football Final’ on Saturday. The Junior Room composed their very own Christmas Mayo song which I’m sure many of our parents and families have enjoyed watching on Seesaw. The Senior Room made  Mayo Christmas bauble hat decorations for their Christmas trees.

We have all had a very enjoyable time!

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our families and friends a very ‘Happy & Safe Christmas’ and a ‘Healthy and Prosperous New Year’. We look forward to welcoming you all back to school again in January.

Science Week!

Last week we celebrated ‘Science Week’.

Both classrooms enjoyed taking part in some interesting and exciting experiments. The senior room experimented with bubbles and the junior room had lots of fun with dancing raisins! Wow!

Have a look at some pictures from the week.

Aistear baking!

This week our Aistear theme is ‘The Bakery’ and today we made our very own Rice Krispie buns!

We had great fun and even better fun eating them!


Strawberry Success!

Thank you to Kevin, one of our 6th class pupils, who brought in lots of runners from his strawberry plants at home.

On Tuesday, the senior room planted them in our Biodiversity garden.

We hope to have lots of juicy strawberries in Spring and Summer!

Hallowe’en Horror!

We have been super busy during the week completing lots of Hallowe’en art and activities.

On Friday, it  was an extra exciting morning at Glencorrib N.S as all of our children arrived to school in such amazing costumes! Great fun was had throughout the day at our Hallowe’en party, we even got some pizza for our lunch!

We would like to wish all our children and families a very happy and safe mid-term break.

Autumn Gardening!

It is great to be back working in our school garden again.

Our senior room have been busy over the last month tidying up our sensory garden, planting autumn window boxes and they have also set some new climbers at our pergola.

We all really enjoy gardening, especially this year as we are beginning work on our new  flag for Green Schools Ireland – ‘Biodiversity’.

Have a look at some photos of our wonderful work.

Autumn Art!

Last week our junior room collected some beautiful autumn leaves in the school garden, which they used to make  ‘Leaf People’ in art.

What wonderful and creative artists we have in our school!

Have a look at some of the fabulous works shown in the picture by our 1st and 2nd class.
