Great credit must go to 5th class and Senior Infants for their wonderful performances for all the pupils and families of those involved. A huge amount of dedication and practice went into the preparation for the show. During the summer term, members of 5th class ‘buddied up’ with Senior Infants and taught them drumming skills, techniques and rhythms.
All the musicians and performers did themselves very proud and they served up a lively and entertaining show in St.Joseph’s Hall. Apart from various types of drums and other percussion instruments there was fabulous dancing and singing on display by the very talented children.
It was a great way to end what was a productive and fun school year. Well done to all the Glór na Mara musicians!


Rang 5 organised a Team Building Challenge course in the yard to celebrate Friendship Week. After careful planning, they set up eight different stations in the yard. Each station had a different challenge which required the children to work as a team, co-operate and communicate. The children from Rang 2 -Rang 6 had a great time and really put in a huge effort to work as a team. Well done to Rang 5 for doing a fantastic job explaining each activity and encouraging all classes to work as a team.

What kind of ship can never sink?

We’ve been celebrating Friendship Week in Rang 1.  Here are some of the things we have been getting up to:

We buddied up with kids from Ms. O’Riordan’s Junior Infants.  We played on their yard with them at breaktime.  We made Polydrons with them, we did floor jigsaws with them, we did shared reading with them and built blocks with them.  Tomorrow, we can bring a toy to play with them.  We painted a huge ‘Friendship’ with them and stuck on pictures of us with our buddies.

Reading with our Buddies

We did some other things as well.  We picked out Secret Buddies from a tin – someone in our class.  We have to be nice to them, but we can’t tell them that they’re our Secret Buddy.  Tomorrow, we’ll have three guesses to see who our Secret Buddy was.

We’re learning a song as well – it’s called ‘You’ve got a Friend’ and it was written by Carol King.

Tomorrow, the teachers are playing ‘Mister and Missus’ – Mr.Ó Cathasaigh has to answer questions about Ms. McCarthy to see how much he knows about her.  He’s scared 😛

Alana says:  “I like my buddy.  Her name is Róisín.”
Ellen says:  “Friendship Week was fun!”
Joe says:  “My buddy’s name is Daniel – he’s good at reading!”
Darragh says:  “It was sooo fantastic!”

With glorious weather forecast, we were for once more worried about sunscreen than umbrellas when Sports Day rolled around. After the success of last year, the two 6th Classes were again put in charge of the ten stations that were to be dotted around the school grounds – and they did themselves proud! Many thanks to all the parents who came along to see their children take part in what turned out to be a great day.

Some action shots from the day….

Everyone in our class has a pen-pal from Belfast. We tell them about ourselves and our favourite colours and favourite bands and our families. We tell them about our favourite animals and all about Tramore and our school. We tell them our favourite subjects. We sent a picture to them of the whole class holding up letters saying “Hello Mrs. Durkan’s P.5 class”. By Natalia and Julie

RTÉ 2fm and Barnardos were calling on the entire country to get a little bit silly (and a lot dressed up) by dressing up funny for money. It’s a fantastic opportunity to transform thousands of childrens’ lives in the process.

Glór na Mara joined in to help raise awareness about Barnardos and raise some much-needed funds. I think you’ll agree that we all looked like we had fun!

We celebrated Déise Day! Children came to school dressed in their county colours of blue and white.

Ms. Hearne invited some of her Waterford team mates to school following their win of the All Ireland Premier Junior Camogie title! Na Déise abú!

We are delighted to announce that our school has been awarded a share in the 30,000 litres of paint that will be donated by Dulux to worthy projects throughout the country. In May, we applied to the “Lets Colour Project 2012” for some paint to bring life and colour back into our old school hall, St. Josephs Hall. We were awarded 150 litres of paint! The children have been busy already, drawing some ideas and designs for the theme of the hall and we will be passing these onto the Artists in a few days. We hope you enjoy following the progress of our project and we look forward to receiving any comments you might wish to make.
