4th Class Lego Club

We’ve just finished lego club and we absolutely loved it.  We learned how to programme robots and how to  make them move and talk!  We made lots of different things like houses, cars, ships and windmills.  Check out our pictures to see what we made.  We want to say a big thank you to the volunteers from UCC who helped us out and made lego club so much fun!

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.
