Upper Glanmire NS


Thank you Joe!

This morning we said thank you to Joe our caretaker who left us after nearly 9 years service. Joe was well loved in our school. He knew every child in the school on a first name basis. He will be truly missed.

He left with a fantastic message for our children – “It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice”. Thanks Joe!

Green Flag News

On Tuesday, November 18th, our new Green School Committee had their first meeting. As you may be aware, our school has already been awarded three green flags for the themes of Litter & Waste, Global Citizenship and Energy.

The theme we will be working on for the next two years is Water. This is certainly a topical issue and we look forward to learning a lot about our consumption of Water and how this impacts the environment.

Our new committee members are as follows: Ms. N. O’Halloran, Ms. C. Flanagan, Mr. Fergal Manley (Dad of Kate in second class), Kaelan Skillington (6th), Jack O’Callaghan (6th), Amy Cashman (5th), Erin Kelleher (5th), Ellie Twomey (3rd). Daniel O’Keeffe is our 4th class committee member but was not present for the photo. There were lots of exciting ideas put forward at our meeting and we look forward to sharing them with you soon!

Sciath na Scol 2014

Well done to our boys and girls teams on their fantastic campaigns in Sciath na Scol this year. Today in Páirc Uí Chaoimh our boys won their final, however our girls, despite a great performance, fell just short.

We are extremely proud of our two teams today. They were a great credit to our school!

A huge thank you to their great coaches this year. Mr Scanlon, Mr. O’Sullivan, Ms. Healy and Ms. O’Halloran put great time and effort into coaching the teams. Thanks to Finbarr for all his help, and thanks to White’s Cross GAA for their support too!

You can see more pictures in our Sport section of our site, and there are more pictures to follow.
