First Holy Communion 2018

Second Class made their First Holy Communion on Saturday. They all played their part in a beautiful child centred Mass, under the guidance of Ms. Murphy. The pupils were absolutely fabulous and they were well supported by the altar servers and choir from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Classes who were also excellent. Thanks to Fr. Cotter, Ms. Murphy, Anne Dunne, Ms. Conway, Ms. Bourke, Mr. Dunne and Sinéad Russ. Well done children.

Mobile Farm Visit – Apr. ’18

Agriaware’s mobile farm came to visit Glenville recently, with each class getting to see a variety of farm animals up close. The children learned where dairy, meat and eggs come from as well as a wealth of information on farming. The children also fed and petted pigs, calves, ducks, chickens and lambs. Tommy, the farmer was particularly impressed with our pupils’ knowledge of farming and the relevant terminology.  Thanks to Ms. O’Mahony for organising and to Agriaware for coming to us all the way from Laois.

Maths Competition Champs – May ’18

Two teams from Fifth and Sixth classes represented Glenville in the St. Coleman’s Maths challenge. This was a test of problem solving and alternative thinking. Our Sixth Class pupils were the outright winners with a 95% success rate and our Fifth class came in 10th overall out of 27, which was an excellent effort and a great result out of both teams. Well done and thank you to Ms. Conway.
