Well done to the 5th and 6th class pupils who reaped the rewards of their vegetable garden, which was sown before the summer.
The pupils dug up rows of potatoes, cabbages, beans and tomatoes. Our enterprising pupils then set up a pop up shop at the school gate and sold the vegetables making over €100, which will be reinvested in the school garden this year. Thanks to the parents who purchased bags of potatoes and the other vegetables on offer.
Well done to both our boys’ and girls’ teams who have qualified for the Sciath na Scol semi-finals on Thursday.
The children have been a real credit to themselves, their families and their school community. Thanks to the parents for organising lifts to the away matches and thanks to Ms. O’Callaghan, Ms. O’Callaghan, Mr. Murphy and Ms. Donovan for all their hard work training the teams, looking after the teams and ensuring that every pupil got an opportunity to play. The children are enjoying the experience and we wish them well in the semis.
First Holy Communion was held in St. Joseph’s Church in Glenville on Saturday last 13th May 2017. 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 Anne Murphy 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 Ms. Mairead O Callaghan.
Thank you also to the Do This In Memory team who were a great help in the preparation for Holy Communion, especially Emma Thornhill O’ Mahony, Shella Browne and Annette Curtin. We would like to thank the parents who donated cakes and biscuits to the school for the day. A special thank you to all those 1st class parents, parents from other classes and the Parents’ Association who helped out on the day with the refreshments in the Holy Family Centre afterwards. Without your help it wouldn’t have been possible.
On Thursday 16th March 2017 we had our Lá Glas in school. Children wore green and enjoyed practicing their Irish dancing at our Céilí. Local members of the community came and played Irish music for the Céilí. Each class also performed on the day and recited poems and songs as Gaeilge. It was an exciting day for everyone in Glenville N.S.!
Confirmation for 5th & 6th classes took place on Tuesday 14th March 2017. Twenty nine pupils were confirmed by Bishop O’ Donoghue.

Thank you to Ms. Mairead O’Callaghan and also Ms. Marion Forde who conducted and played, respectively. Thank you also to all those parents who donated cakes and biscuits for the Confirmation.
