We’re delighted to formally launch our new school web site today, Thursday at 1.30p.m. Classes have been busy blogging and the committee along with other staff members are busy putting the final touches to the launch. A huge thanks to Mr. Joe Crossan and a very competent team of I.T. gurus including Mrs Dervla Dunleavy, 6th Class teacher, Mrs Jenny Carr, 1st Class teacher and Mrs Anne Marie Ferry, Support teacher who have assisted in designing, sourcing and delivering on this very exciting development. The new school web now offers a history of the school, an archival treasure trove of the Green School magazine that was pioneered and developed under the able stewardship of Mrs Anne Mc Gowan, retired Deputy Principal , class blogging and an abundance of practical information regarding calendar events, policies, weekly updates, among others.
Congratulations to the Green School committee under Ms. Ita O’ Sullivan who won both the May Mc Clintock & Jim Mc Cormack Memorial Awards at the recent Cleaner Community Campaign Awards ceremony held recently in the Mount Errigal hotel. Our first class pupils (now in Second Class!)also won the “Befriend the Bees” project competition.
Congratulations also to both 3rd/4th class and 5th/6th class athletes who won the Athletics Hall competition held last week in the Aura Centre. They now progress to the County qualifiers! Thanks to Mrs Eilís Mc Clafferty, Senior Infants teacher and Mrs Carmel Mc Macken, Support teacher and Mr. Peter Kelly, Caretaker who give of their time voluntarily to coach them.
Thanks to all the pupils and parents and families who supported our recent Beat the Keeper fund raising events. We raised a staggering €4,000 and are able to donate €1,000 to the Donegal Hospice!! We hope to start buying laptops and Ipads in the second term for our pupils use in the classroom!
