RAISING OUR GREEN SCHOOLS FLAG AS WE BID FAREWELL TO 6TH CLASS PUPIL

What a lovely way to finish off our school year by getting the chance to raise our new Green Schools flag. We have been awarded our fifth flag on the theme of biodiversity. We celebrated the day by planting an apple tree in the school to mark the occasion. The tree was planted by our youngest and oldest pupil in the school, and it was a fitting farewell to our 6th class member who is heading off on a new adventure. Slán a bhuachaill agus go n-éirí an bóthar leat!

HOME IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE COOLBOCK SPARROW

The Coolbock Sparrow making some home improvements to its nest in the bird box. The live feed camera has been a great addition to the school and we are very lucky to have such a “handy” parents association who take on these great initiatives to support the pupils learning in so many ways.

SPORTS DAY

It was an absolute pleasure to host the pupils from Taunagh National School for our annual sports day! A massive thank you to all the teachers, parents and past pupils who all worked together to produce such a fun filled day!

Sports Day 2018

Sports Day 2018The children in Taunagh N.S. and Coolbock N.S. had a wonderful Sports Day together. Many thanks to the staff, parents and pupils in Coolbock for hosting yet another brilliant Sports Day. The children enjoyed doing the sprint race, lemon and spoon race, three-legged race and the sack race. After some tasty treats, they did some orienteering, a tug of war and finished with an obstacle course inspired by Ireland's Fittest Family. Without doubt, a fun-filled day was had by all!

MUSIC GENERATION GALA CONCERT

What a wonderful evening of music at the Music Generation Gala Concert that took place in the Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo. The pupils from Coolbock joined over 150 pupils from other schools on stage for a celebration of their musical talents. The pupils performed on the Cello in front of a packed audience of family and friends. The pupils are in their second year of cello lessons which take place for 14 weeks every year in the school with tutor Anna Houston, a member of dynamic folk orchestra band No Crows.

Thanks to Rhona, Emma and everyone in Music Generation Sligo for all their hard work in the project throughout the year. Music Generation is Ireland’s National Music Education Programme that transforms the lives of children and young people through access to high quality performance music education in their locality.

CO-OPERATIVE GAMES FOR PE

Our Senior pupils enjoying some co-operative games during PE. Games are a valuable means of helping children to work together in a caring and co-operative way. They can raise the level of co-operative consciousness and help children to realise what they can learn from each other. Games include all children and they give children the opportunity to practice a range of skills, to be a member of a team, to raise their self-esteem and to be effective group members.
