Congratulations to the U-13 boys football team who beat Ballyduff Upper in a thrilling display to become the 2014 Waterford county champions.
Glór na Mara had a mountain to climb when Ballyduff fired in two quick goals within the first three minutes. The team showed great character to keep in touch against a strong Ballyduff outfit up until the last five minutes when Ballyduff were in the driving seat. They were seven points ahead with five minutes to go. Glór na Mara needed to score and fast. And so they did. Fine teamwork and skill created a fantastic goal to give the Glór na Mara team the belief to play their best football of the season. Another well-worked goal sent the many supporters wild with excitment in the stand. With only seconds to go to the final whistle and Glór na Mara were behind by a point. They needed a goal to win and they found the net through shear determination and hard work.
The team never gave up and they have themselves and the school very proud.
They hold the unique honour of being Glór na Mara’s first County Football Champions!

Rang a hAon have been painting the windows in our classroom for Christmas time.  Our room faces straight out onto the road, so you’ve probably seen them coming slowly together.  Here are the finished windows.  Take a stroll by to see them over the holidays!

St. Vincent De Paul

On the 24th of November, four volunteers from Glór na Mara sixth class began collecting food from all the classes from junior to sixth class. We got lots of different food from tinned food to pasta to selection boxes. People were very generous and brought in lots of food.

Christmas is a very tough for many people. It felt great to help people have a better Christmas. For the past few weeks we got lots of generous donations from all the classes. The response was fantastic.

On the 11th of December the Green Team and Ms.McCarthy’s class lined up across the road to pass the food along  to the St. Vincent de Paul house. We passed the parcels from person to person in the chain. It was good fun! We enjoyed helping out!

We went to Runamuck .The man was very nice and he said that we could play in the main area. Everyone was

delighted and soon they called us to come into the Pottery Place.

The man taught us how to make decoration snowmen for the children.

After that everyone got a drink. When we were finished , we went back into Runamuck. We had a great time and we will get our decorations next week.

We would like to thank Mrs. Dalton, Martina, Fionnuala  and Kathleen for bringing us.

Our Visit to Tramore Garda Station

On the 7th of November we went to Tramore Garda Station and they were very nice. We got to use the radios and talk to each other . We also got to wear a Garda hat and a Garda vest. We got our fingerprints taken and we had a look at the Garda cars. And last but not least we pretended to get information and we asked each other questions and tried to point out who was lying. We had great fun and I would like to thank Tramore Garda Station for allowing us to visit.
