In Glasheen BNS, we are at an advanced stage of planning the roll out of hot school lunches for our boys, for the next school. Instead of the sandwich option, the boys will have a menu of hot lunch options. At small lunch time, they will still get the piece of fruit and healthy snack, while they will have a hot lunch portion at big lunch time. Details of menus will be available in June 2021 and the ordering system will be the same as it is, at the moment.

The story of Donald Hurley & his family is contained in the History section of our website, under 'Past Pupils'. Donald moved to America when he was 11 years old but never forgot Glasheen BNS and visited us several times a year. He has been unable to travel since 2017 but we were in regular telephone contact. He loved his school and he was very much loved by all in Glasheen BNS. Sadly, Donald has passed away in hospital in New York. He will be very, very much missed. Rest in Peace, Donald.
