Green Fingers!

Our senior room replanted our window boxes today with some beautiful dianthuses, violas and pansies!

6th Class Graduation

As always, the excitement on our last day of school was tinged with sadness, as we bid farewell to our wonderful 6th class pupils, Jonathan, Kevin, Angie, Ethan and Liam.

We will miss them all 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.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our pupils and families a very happy, healthy and safe summer holidays. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Glencorrib NS in September.

Sports Day

Monday was a very exciting day in school as we held our annual ‘Sports Day’.

In the morning, we had great fun competing in lots of fun races including egg and spoon, three legged race and the sack race.

In the afternoon, our teachers set up different activities for us including a ‘Throw the Welly’ and a ‘Picking Potatoes’ competition.

We all had a great, fun-filled day!

Biodiversity Week

This week we have been celebrating ‘Biodiversity Week’ in Glencorrib N.S. as we are currently working towards achieving our 5th green flag ‘Biodiversity’.

We have been completing nature scavenger hunts, making beautiful butterflies in art and also planting some new trees in our school garden.

Wednesday was an extra special day as all of our pupils walked, cycled or scooted to school for ‘National WOW Day’ and we all dressed in beautiful, brightly coloured clothing to symbolize biodiversity. We were very proud of the fantastic effort put in by all our pupils and families. Well done everyone!

I think you’ll agree that the boys and girls look brilliant in all their different colours!

Football Training with Shrule Glencorrib Club

It’s great to see so many of our younger pupils taking part in football training with the Under 7’s in the local Shrule Glencorrib Club.

Looks like you’re all having great fun!

Well done to all involved.


Busy Bees in the Biodiversity Garden!

Over the last few weeks we have been busy working on the biodiversity programme for Green-schools.

Junior and Senior infants planted some broadbean seeds during Aistear and we are eagerly awaiting lots of tall beanstalks!

Múinteoir Orna’s class sowed wildflower seeds in our school biodiversity garden and are hoping that they will attract lots of bees and butterflies over the coming months.

Múinteoir Lorraine’s room planted some potato and tomato seeds – hopefully we will have a fruitful harvest!

Have a look at some pictures from all our hard work in the garden…
