Chess Teams

Well done to our teams from 4th & 6th class who took part in the first ever Ficheall Bunscoile Chorcaí competition in the Upper Glanmire Sports Hall this week. Our school hosted our regional competition with over 160 children playing chess in the hall on Tuesday. We had a great day and we look forward to many more fun days ahead in the competition.

Double County Champions!

A huge congratulations to our girls in Rang 6 who were part of the Glanmire and Sarsfields, football and camogie teams that won two county finals on the same day last week. Despite having to play two games a few hours apart, the girls showed great determination and we are all extremely proud of them. Well done girls!!!
