Farewell Little Butterflies

Today we released our beautiful Butterflies into the school garden. We really enjoyed watching them transform from tiny, baby caterpillars into beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies.


In Second Class, we are reading Matilda. We have been using ‘Role on the Wall’ to record what we find out about her character. We look forward to adding to it as the story goes on.

Today’s Story

‘After the Fall’ (How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again) was a huge hit with 2nd Class today. An inspiring tale about over-coming fears. I won’t spoil the ending but it was a real special moment for the class. The look on their little faces was priceless!

Competition time!!!

Dear students,
We would like to invite you to enter a story/poetry or song writing competition!! The theme is on the topic of time and what we are doing now that we are all at home with our families. This competition is open to all children from first to sixth classes and there will be three categories as follows: 1st/2nd, 3rd/4th and 5th/6th.
So get creative and email us in your story, song or poem to oifig@greenmount.ie. Please include your class level in the subject of your email.
We will announce the winners from each category on the website with prizes to follow!

Please check out the advertisement above and examples below which were designed by Fazla in 6th class. Many thanks Fazla.
Looking forward to reading all your entries. Stay safe and mind yourselves.
Mr. Hurley and Greenmount teachers


Well done to Fazla and Lukas!!



All students in 6th class recently received a copy of the book ‘The Person Controller’ by David Baddiel. We had lots of fun activities planned as part of this community project which included working with lots of other schools as well. Due to our recent change in circumstances the students of 6th class are now designing their own book cover and writing a report on the book.

Well done to Fazla for designing the wonderful book cover above and to Lukas for writing a great book report!
