Healthy Green School Approach

Our school has a very proactive approach to healthy lifestyles and environmentally friendly living.  We worked hard to earn our first Green Flag.  Currently our Healthy Green School’s Committee is working hard to lead our school towards our second Green Flag.  Pictures below show our Healthy Green School’s Committee and their efforts in leading our drive to have a green, clean, healthy school.

Greenmount Junior Brass Band

Greenmount’s link with the famous Barrack Street Band means that we are lucky to have our very own Junior Brass Band.  This year the band has performed for the Lord Mayor of Cork and on the City Hall stage on two occasions.  Their success has seen them gracing the front page of the Evening Echo as well as having been featured in two other national newspapers.

Greenmount’s Winning Streak 2011-12

2011-12 was a very exciting year for Greenmount N.S. in the sporting world.  The girl’s football team reached the final of their Sciath na Scol group.  At the same time, the boy’s football and hurling Sciath na Scol teams went on to win their groups, claiming an emotional double Sciath na Scol victory for the Green.

Later in the year, our tennis team entered the Greenmount history books by claiming the Barber Cup for the first time in Greenmount’s history.

Congratulations to the pupils and their coaches on such a wonderful sporting year.
