Congratulations to our newly-elected Student Council members for 2020.  We look forward to working with you this year. You have a vital part to play in making our school a better place.


In September, Pieta House launched The Know The Signs Campaign for suicide awareness month. Two of our TY students, Ava Joyce and Emma Comer have been putting up posters to raise awareness for Pieta House and are hoping to have a day in the future to fundraise for this charity. Due to Covid 19 they were unable to do the annual Darkness into Light walk, instead they planted a tree and put up a plaque in memory of all the people we have lost to suicide.

Congratulations to Rowan Dunne (TY) who was recently presented with an Outstanding Achievement Certificate by SciFest. The competition which was due to be held in GMIT in April was held online instead. Rowan’s project “Are Thorium Salt reactors a new safe sustainable energy source ?” was an extension of the research he conducted for his CBA 2 in science last year.  Rowan hopes to continue his research into this topic.



Glenamaddy Community School is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all our staff and a safe learning environment for all our students. To ensure that, we have developed the following COVID-19 Response Plan.

The Board of Management and all school staff are responsible for the implementation of this plan and a combined effort will help contain the spread of the virus.

We will:

  • continue to monitor our COVID-19 response and amend this plan in consultation with our staff
  • provide up to date information to our staff and students on the Public Health advice issued by the HSE and Gov.ie
  • display information on the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and correct handwashing techniques
  • agree with staff, a worker representative who is easily identifiable to carry out the role outlined in this plan in relation to summer provision
  • inform all staff and students of essential hygiene and respiratory etiquette and physical distancing requirements
  • adapt the school to facilitate physical distancing as appropriate in line with the public health guidance and direction of the Department of Education
  • keep a contact log to help with contact tracing
  • ensure staff and students engage with the induction / familiarisation briefing provided by the Department of Education
  • implement the agreed procedures to be followed in the event of someone showing symptoms of COVID-19 while at school
  • provide instructions for staff and students to follow if they develop signs and symptoms of COVID-19 during school time
  • implement cleaning in line with Department of Education advice All school staff will be consulted on an ongoing basis and feedback is encouraged on any concerns, issues or suggestions.

This can be done through the Lead Worker Representative(s), who will be supported in line with the agreement between the Department and education partners.
