As always, the excitement on our last day of school was tinged with sadness, as we bid farewell to our wonderful 6th class pupils, Matthew, Michaela and Luke.
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.
Yesterday, our 2nd – 6th class pupils had a very exciting day! We travelled to McHale Park in Castlebar for a football blitz.
It was a great honor to play on the main pitch at McHale Park, which was definitely a first for most of us! We played three matches in total. We each received a medal for our participation and great effort.
This week we have had a very busy and fun week as we have been participating in ‘Active School Week’. Every day each classroom has taken part in a different activity.
We have had a real variety of activities including orienteering, tag rugby, rounders and football. We also ventured out for a whole school 4km walk on Tuesday!
Munteoir Lorraine’s room have been extra busy as they travelled to Bekan on Wednesday for a small schools activity day and to Claremorris for an athletics day on Friday.
On Thursday, we held our annual ‘Sports Day’ which included a number of races such as sprints, relays, egg and spoon race, sack race and the three legged race. As an extra surprise, the ice-cream van also visited us during Sports Day and we all enjoyed a delicious ice-cream cone!

Over the last number of weeks the senior room have been learning about procedural oral language and writing.
On Tuesday, we broke up into teams and presented our own baking show where we explained and demonstrated how to make a chocolate biscuit cake.
We really enjoyed this activity, although, we must admit that our favourite part was sampling the cake afterwards!
Yesterday, there was great excitement in Glencorrib N.S ahead of our school tour to Let’s Go camp in Castlebar.
We travelled by bus to the ‘Breaffy Sports Arena’ where we were split into groups. Throughout the day we completed a range of fun and exciting activities including the spider tower, zorbing, cup stacking, pony rides, disco dome, wobbly ladder and many many more.
It was a fantastic day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

This year we are busy working on our Green Schools Travel Flag.
Yesterday was Green Schools National WOW Day which was aimed at promoting walking to school as a more environmentally friendly method of travel. To celebrate WOW day, we organised a whole school walk around the local area of Glencorrib.
We walked a total distance of 4KM which we thought was excellent, particularly for our junior room!
Well done to all our pupils on such a fantastic effort.
Well done to Luke and Kevin on their fantastic success with Moyne Villa Soccer club.
The boys play on different teams within the club and both teams have gone on to win the Galway U12 Soccer Championship.
This is a fantastic achievement and we are all very proud of them here in Glencorrib N.S. They kindly brought their medals and trophies to school to show all of the other boys and girls.
This week we’ve all been busy in the garden.
The senior room planted some lovely, bright, summer flowers in the window boxes and they also picked some fresh rhubarb from the fruit and vegetable garden.
Some of the junior room pupils brought their broad beans back into school to show us how much they have sprouted over the Easter holidays.
We are so proud of how excellent all of our pupils are at working in the garden! Keep on eye on our school over the next few weeks and watch our window boxes come into full bloom!
