SPECIAL MESSAGE FOR OUR FIRST COMMUNION BOYS

Posted on 2020-05-20 09:18:56

We are thinking, very much, about our boys who were due to make their First Communion, this Saturday, 23rd May 2020, in The Lough Church. When normality is restored, we will look forward to celebrating the occasion with our boys. I can remember my First Communion Day, in The Lough Church, many years ago, when I was in 2nd Class in Glasheen BNS. Each year, it is a very special occasion for me to see our boys following in my footsteps. Our 2nd Class teachers have posted messages on Google Classroom, as well as sending post cards to each boy in 2nd Class. There are some photos of 30 staff members, on their Communion Day and you might like to guess who is who! See Facebook & Twitter.

END OF YEAR REPORTS, PARENT EMAILS, BOOK RENTAL & GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Posted on 2020-05-14 15:44:02

1. End of Year Reports will be emailed to parents this year. Please let us know by email (to the relevant class email) which email address we should use to distribute the reports. We cannot send the report to a pupil's own email address (email address must belong to an adult, clearly identifying as the parent of a named child).
2. Book Rental : We would appreciate it if all book rental books could be dropped to the school on Thursday June 18th. Books should be placed in a plastic bag and clearly labelled with the pupil's name. The bag should contain the Rental Books as identified in the Book Lists or by your son's teacher. If you left one of these books at school, please make note of this on the label. We will communicate times for drop off of books closer to the date and social distancing measures will be observed.
3. Google Classroom: We will continue to monitor and upload work suggestions to the Google Classroom for the next five weeks; May 18th - 22nd, May 25th - 28th (Mon - Thurs), June 3th & 4th (Thurs & Fri), June 8th - 12th and June 15th - 19th. As the school books are due to be collected on June 18th, we will not be posting 'book based' work in the final week. From June 22nd - 26th we will post an online interactive challenge each morning. (More details of this to follow). The Google Classroom will close on Friday evening, the 26th. There will be staff meetings on Monday 29th & Tuesday 30th. Work will not be prescribed on these days.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let us know. We can be contacted at the class email.
We appreciate the support of both parents and pupils as we navigate this unfamiliar territory together.

YEARBOOK PAYMENT & PHOTOS FOR 6TH CLASS PHOTOSTORY

Posted on 2020-05-13 16:56:48

We are thinking very much of all of our boys but nobody more than our 6th Class boys, who are preparing to transition to secondary school. We have set up an email: graduation@glasheenboys.com for parents, if they wish to send photos of their sons during their time in Glasheen BNS, for inclusion in their 6th Class photostory. When completed, the photostory will be emailed to parents, so your family can enjoy the memories. The Yearbook is also being completed, so these will be prepared for the boys, as souvenirs of their years in Glasheen BNS. Please send in €10.00 by post or dropping it in the school letter box at the school car park gate, address to Glasheen Boys' School Parents' Association, School Avenue, Glasheen, Cork, by Monday 25th May. Many thanks,
