All Day Relay -June 13th 2022

The staff and Board of Management of Glencorrib NS would like to thank our parents, past pupils, families and members of the community for demonstrating such wonderful support to our “All Day Relay” fundraiser. It was fantastic to have so many of you join us on the day for a lap or two on our Community Walkway. To date, we have raised an amazing €2,660! 
Your continued support of our school is greatly appreciated! 🙂 

Fundraiser 2022 – All Day Relay

This year our annual school fundraiser will be an "All Day Relay" with donations being collected online via 

For the All Day Relay our pupils and staff will be making use of our wonderful new Community Walkway and we will ensure that from 9:30am to 2:30pm there will be a number of our pupils walking on the track at all times (class groups will take it in turns to keep the relay going.) Parents, past pupils and members of the community are welcome to join us for a lap or two throughout the day if they wish to do so. 

We hope to hold this relay the week of the 13th of June but, to ensure we have a dry day for this activity, we will confirm the date closer to the time.

Well done to Tomás and Harry who represented our school in the South Mayo Cross Country Competition yesterday in Ballinrobe.

We are very proud of both boys who ran so brilliantly in their respective categories.

Tomás will now go on to compete in the county final in October after finishing 5th in his race. An amazing achievement!

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.
