February 15, 2017 Comments off


First Holy Communion was held in St. Joseph’s Church in Glenville on Saturday 14th May 2016. Congratulations and well done to second class on making their First Holy Communion. A special thank you to their teacher Ms. Audrey Murphy and the SNA Catherine Murphy and Ms. Ber O’ Callaghan who worked extremely hard in preparing the children for Holy Communion. We have to make a special mention to the choir who put on a great performance on the day under the guidance of Ms. Marion Forde and Mrs. Clodagh Conway and Ms. Sarah Clynch.
Thank you also to the Do This In Memory team who were a great help in the preparation for Holy Communion, especially Liz Counihan, Jennifer O’Mahony and Michelle Guichard.

Opening Ceremony of Glenville NS

May 19, 2016 Comments off

On Friday 15th April we celebrated our Official opening of our new school. Thankfully the weather remained dry and there was a fantastic turnout from the local community both young and old to help us celebrate this momentous occasion! The whole school was involved in the preparation and as always the children of Glenville NS rose to the occasion from the Guard of Honour to the very talented performance on stage by the older children.
The plaques were unveiled by Past Principal Mr. Batt Dunlea, Parish Priest Fr. Cotter and Parent’s Association member Gillian Crowe. The tree was planted by former Parish Priest Fr. Cashman and Principal Michael O’Donnell and the ribbon was cut by Oliver Manley.

Tomorrow is a momentous day for all the staff and children in Glenville NS. We are eagerly waiting for the Official Opening of our fantastic new school! There has been a buzz of activity both inside and outside the school all week with cleaning, decorating, moving furniture and music practice. As always every single person in our little school community got involved and stuck in!

We are very proud of our new school and Community hall and still cannot believe we are finally in it after all the years of hopes and disappointment.

This is a big day for Glenville NS and also the local community who were so supportive during its construction. We extend a warm welcome to each and everyone in the Glenville Community to join us a 12pm tomorrow, April 15th 2016 to officially open “Scoil Mhuire” and celebrate this very historic day!
