World Book Day

For World Book Day everyone brought in their favourite book from home. We had circle time where everyone shared a bit about their book.

Pancake Tuesday

On Shrove Tuesday Ms Fenton made pancakes for the class. We all brought in own toppings. We had been learning about Lent so this was a nice treat before it began.

Seatbelt Sheriff Competition

First and Second Class recently entered the Seatbelt Sheriff Poster Competition. Unfortunately they didn’t win but have a look at their wonderful entry. We are very proud of their hard work.

Clay Snowmen

Check out our fantastic snowmen that we constructed from clay! We had to concentrate very hard when building them.

Christmas 2017

We recently held our Christmas Concert in the school. It was a very special concert for us as we had two performances. The Junior Room performed The Tiptoe Nativity and the Senior Room performed Cinderella. Everyone did so well and the Mums & Dads and teachers were very proud. They said we were amazing! After the concert we had a little party and a raffle. A fantastic day for our school. Wishing everyone a peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year from all at The Glebe NS.


The Glebe NS meets the Liam McCarthy Cup!

We recently paid a visit to our neighbours in St Catherine’s NS to meet some of the players and management from the victorious Galway Senior Hurling Team who won the All Ireland Final in September of this year. It was a great privilege to get to hold the cup and chat to the players and we got some great photographs. Many thanks to Cappataggle GAA Club for organising this and to St Catherine’s NS for hosting us.

Aistear Food & Fruity Friday

Some photos from our recent Aistear topic – Food. We held Fruity Friday as part of this topic and it was a huge success! Look at all the fabulous fruit we tried. We even tried lemons and limes! One of our favourite things to do was setting up our Healthy Eating Cafe which we still have in our classroom. Well done everyone!

Trick or Treat for Temple Street

Well done all for raising €60 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital as part of Trick or Treat for Temple Street. Great job on your fantastic costumes and many thanks for your donations.

Raising our Green Flag

We had a wonderful day at school raising our Green Flag. Reverend John, Ms. Fenton and some children from the senior room all spoke to us about the Green Flag project. There was a special surprise at the end when an ice cream van drove into the school yard! It was a really lovely treat and everyone enjoyed their ice cream cones. Many thanks to everyone involved for your support and hard work.
