Best Wishes Mrs. Roche!

Posted by Orla On April - 25 - 2012

Tom and Mrs. Roche with Gortskehy Board of Management (Andrew Heaney missing from photo).On Wednesday, February 28th we had a party at the school for Mrs. Roche. We had this party because it was her last day in Gortskehy School. We all made cards and bought her a gift which made her very happy. Mrs. Roche invited a clown who performed magic tricks and painted our faces. She was very good and we all had great fun.

On Friday evening we had a Mass at Carras Church for Mrs. Roche and her family. Everyone took part in the ceremony and then we went to Tierney’s of Foxhall where we had a party. A band played music and we had sandwiches, cake and lemonade. It was great fun. We will all miss Mrs. Roche and we wish her good luck in the future.

Our Third Green Flag

Posted by Máistir Ó Beirn On August - 5 - 2011

In June we received our Third Green Flag for the Water Theme.  The flag-raising was performed by Councillor Michael Burke, Cathaoirleach, Comhairle Contae Mhaigh Eo.  Also pictured: James Hession (Chairperson, Board of Management), Phil Roche (múinteoir), Sharon Cameron (Environmental Awareness Officer, Mayo County Council), Justin, James, Thomas, Rebecca and Orla (Green Schools Committee).  We are very lucky to have Tom Murphy and Rose McHale who take excellent care of our school and grounds.

Third Green Flag - Water Theme Flag Raising Ceremony

On arrival in the morning we are often greeted by hares or rabbits playing on the school grounds. One of them is braver than the others and is a regular visitor to this flower tub!
