On behalf of the Anti-Bullying Committee and the staff and children of Upper Glanmire National School I would like to say a big thanks to the Parents’ Association for granting us funding to purchase PE and yard equipment for the entire school. The equipment has been used every day on the yard and at PE times. It will be enjoyed and used for many years to come. Well done especially to the children of the Anti-Bullying Committee (Meadhbh O’Callaghan, Ryan Manley, Sophie O’Leary and Lucy Galvin) who applied for the funds, came up with a list of equipment needed and who distribute and mind the equipment on a daily basis. Thanks also to Bernie O’Dwyer (SNA and Anti-Bullying Committee member) and Mr. Scanlon for helping to organise and sort all the equipment in the new container which Pat O’Callaghan (our amazing caretaker) installed last year. Pictures of the equipment, the presentation of the equipment and examples of the children using the equipment are below.

We were delighted to welcome Eoin McMahon into our 5th/6th class this week. Eoin carried out a series of workshops aimed at promoting the responsible use of the outdoors. Cork City Council kindly sponsored the workshops under an environmental initiative called Local Agenda 21.
Children had the opportunity to learn about preserving and protecting their local environment and the impact their own individual footprint can leave.
Huge thanks to Eoin for a great day. Check out the pictures below!
