Visit of the Lord Mayor

 

This morning we were delighted to welcome Cllr John Sheehan, The Lord Mayor of Cork, to Scoil Naomh Micheál.

Children, parents and staff gathered in the Community Hall where the Lord Mayor spoke with us and answered questions from the children. The school choir also entertained us with three fabulous songs.

Below you will see the Lord Mayor pictured with the school choir, and making a presentation to children in our school. Click the link below for more pictures.

Green Schools News

Students, parents and teachers walked to school together this morning wearing green to show our support for the global climate change protests taking place today. Millions of young people are demanding action on climate change. We will be learning a lot about this issue over the next two years as we work on the Biodiversity theme for our sixth Green Flag. Thank you to the Parents Association and to all of the parents and children who walked to school today.

 

Thank you to the Parents’ Association!

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.

Kindest regards,

Mr. O’Sullivan (on behalf of the Anti-Bullying Committee).

Leave No Trace 5th/6th

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!
