Cloghroe ends school year on a high!

As summer holidays approach, we look back on the action-packed month of June in our school.

Congratulations to all involved in our school musical ‘Beauty and the Beast’ which enthralled our audience at every performance.

Our Creative Schools’ Council is hard at work with our Creative Schools associate Jane Hayes. Our application for the Creative Schools Pilot Programme was accepted which gives the school a grant to spend on the children’s wishes to access different forms of creativity. 4th class are now working on animation movies under the guidance of a creative practitioner Jane Lee, using plasticine and iPad apps to create their own short movie clips.

On Monday 10th June, first class had their last hurling training session with coach Timmy. The children got a chance to put all the skills they learnt into practice at a class blitz.

We are very proud of both the girls in camogie, and the boys in hurling on their Sciath na Scol wins in Roinn C2 and H2 at  Páirc Uí Rinn.

As part of our SPHE programme encouraging civic responsibility, and to focus on environmental awareness, 6th class undertook a project to clean up some of the very old graves in the grounds of Cloghroe church.

We were well represented in the Cork City Sports in CIT. All the training both in and outside of school paid off when they received their trophies.

There are school tours galore for students, where great fun is being had at the Glen Resource Centre, Fota Wildlife Park, Rumley’s Farm, the Titanic Centre or a local history tour, to name but a few.

First Class BlitzEnjoy the summer everyone!
