The One Book One Community Project was launched by the lord Mayor at the Lough today. Children from all the local primary schools gathered together to begin a fortnight of work on Michael Morpurgo’s “Mr. Nobody’s Eyes.” World Champion, Bernard Dunne popped along to encourage all our young people to keep up their love of reading.
Ms. Rice’s 6th Class took 3rd prize in the Discover Cork Schools’ Heritage Project Competition. Their project was a very thorough history of their 160 year old school and included a history of the famous Greenmount area. The class carried out an interview with past pupil and former Lord Mayor, Toddy O’Sullivan, to find out what school was like in the past. This is the second big win for Greenmount in this competition in recent years.
Senior classes were treated to a golf workshop on Wednesday last. Great fun was had!
The Boys’ Football Team gave us a heart stopping match against Barney Street N.S. in Páirc Uí Chaoimh today. The boys returned home champions!
