The yield from the garden was not as high as previous years but that didn’t deter the dedicated team of chefs, commis chefs, sous chefs, chefs de partie, kitchen porters, etc… from producing the finest of fare, yet again, in the Corballa Kitchen (and beyond – thank you to Muddys!). Thank you, also, to the harvesters (pupils), veg prep team (5th and 6th class), hard working volunteers and their equipment (see pictures!), Mrs Igoe for the shopping, and our expert team of tasters (all of the above)! Special thanks to our families who tended to garden during the summer holidays, without whom we would be eating dandelion salad and nettle soup…
Work commenced with the harvest on Tuesday 4th September.
(The case of the missing potatoes continues….!)
The next day, Wednesday 5th September, prep work began with 5th, 6th, TY student Patrick and Christina cleaning, shelling, chopping, topping and tailing until the professionals arrived….
After break, thanks to the small but efficient team of expert volunteers, production started on a selection of tasty soups, garlic bread, buttery green beans and delicious rhubarb crumble and by the end of lunchtime the entire school had reaped the benefit of their amazing culinary skills! We are truly grateful… Look at these happy faces!

Please note: We have details of the Enniscrone show being held here in Castleconnor in July. We will be making children aware of the various events and competitions and would encourage children to enter whatever section is of interest to them,
The sun shone in the sky – and the pollen count was high!
We had beautiful weather for the Sports Day today and (except for a few hayfever casualties) we had a great day. There were thrills and spills and lots of action – and over a hundred 99’s, (thanks to the Parents Association)!
Here’s just a flavour of our activities…

Cumann na mBunscol 2018!
As the sun shone down, Markievicz Park welcomed players, teachers, parents and supporters through the gates on Saturday 26th as the finals of the Sligo Cumann na mBunscol 2018 took place. Schools from across the county came together to showcase their skill and talents.
Our boys team from 5th and 6th class were focused and determined on retaining the cup from our win last year. We knew we would be challenged by the talented team from Holy Family School in Tubbercurry. They proved worthy opponents. But it was Corballa who were victorious on the day and we now proudly display the County Final Cup in our school for the second year in a row!
Also, well done to our neighbours Stokane N.S, who won the girls 5-a-side final on the day!

Commiserations to our girls team who played bravely and fought to the end in the Cumann na mBunscol games in Tubercurry on Friday May 18th. To lose by a mere point is tough but the girls can hold their heads up high having given it their all. Thanks to Yvonne Healy for her coaching and support of the girls team and good luck to the qualifying teams from Moylough and Tubercurry as they progress to the next round.
And, of course, best of luck to the Corballa N.S. boys team who were successful in their matches and play again next week in their attempt to retain the cup!
