Glenamaddy Community School PLC students were on a two-week Erasmus+ work placement programme in Malaga. This invaluable experience, in conjunction with their host company European Era, was made possible through the funding of the Erasmus+ Programme by the European Union. Their itinerary was brimming with cultural immersion and professional development opportunities.

On the 8th of February 2024, 5th Year students, Transition Year students and teachers set off on their skiing trip to Poland. The trip started with a guided cultural tour of the city of Krakow to see Wawel Royal Castle, the Vistula River and Stare Miasto Square. The journey continued onto the ski town of Szczyrk where they spent the next 5 days learning to ski and immersing themselves in Polish culture. Everyone learned the skill of skiing and had great fun doing so. Thanks to everybody involved in making this journey a once in a lifetime occasion.

A great display of singing, sean-nós dancing, musical recital and poetry were part of this years programme of events. It was remarkable to witness the array of talents being performed through our native tongue.

Pictured are some of our senior ladies team in their new jerseys kindly sponsored by Lidl. We would like to thank parents and guardians, staff and the wider school community who supported Glenamaddy CS and made this possible. A huge thank you to Lidl for supporting ladies football in recent years. Their support and recognition of ladies football is admirable. The future is bright!
