We wish all our students a happy and safe Halloween. Below are some pictures taken today by Stephen from the St. Corban's Media Team.
Last Friday morning the pupils of St. Corban’s B.N.S, did something very different to any other ordinary Friday morning. They had their breakfast in school!
Why had they breakfast in school? All pupils brought in their donation, bowl and spoon, in aid of the Cheerios Childline day.
What is Cheerios Childline? Cheerios Childline is when the children donate, so that any child, who needs to can call Childline.
How long have St. Corban’s have supported Childline? For the past 4 years St. Corban’s have supported this fantastic cause.
How much money did we raise? The pupils this year raised a staggering €660!
This event wouldn’t happen in the school if it wasn’t for all Ms. McDermott’s hard work. So the pupils would like to give Ms. McDermott a massive thank you!

The note below, from the Parent/Teacher Association, will be sent home with the children this week. If you're interested in volunteering on any of the days please fill in the appropriate information and return it to your child's teacher by Wednesday 23rd October. Thank you for your continued support.
Our school will be running its Cheerios Childline Breakfast this Friday, October 18th. Children are asked to bring a bowl and spoon with them on the day along with a small donation which will go towards supporting Childline. Cheerios and milk will be provided. Any child who does not want to have Cheerios should bring another cereal with them instead.
Last Friday our school had a jersey day to raise money for GOAL. All of us were delighted to be wearing normal clothes instead of wearing our school uniform.
Eoghan K. and I went around to different classes to take pictures. Altogether our school raised €1,030.00, which will be donated to goal. Ms. Brady’s Class raised the most money which was €85.40.

Over the month of September we learned all about Australia. We were very lucky because Odhrán's uncle Ciarán and his Australian wife, Karen, kindly came into our class to talk to us all about life down under!! We got to hear amazing stories about the dangerous Australian wildlife, the different foods, weather, sport and famous landmarks. Ciarán and Karen showed us cool photos, an Aussie Rules jersey, some Australian currency and even tiny nuggets of gold from an Australian gold mine.
We made didgeridoos and boomerangs in art class. Have a look at us trying out our boomerangs. Unfortunately, they rarely returned to us, but we still had great fun!!
The new Sacraments page on our website contains information about Confirmation and Communion preparations. We'll keep the page up to date with relevant information as the year progresses.
Say hello to the six members of this year's Media Team (formerly known as the website team). These sixth class students will be responsible for bringing you news and updates here on the school blog throughout the year. We have three photographers (Eoghan, Ross and Stephen) and three writers (Daniel, Alex and Eoghan). The team will also share other duties around creating audio material and uploading reports to the school website.
A few words from our three writers:
I am looking forward to being on the school website team, as I will get to go to most of the school’s events. I am privileged to get the opportunity to be chosen to take part. The events I’m most looking forward to are football finals, hoping that our school will be taking part in them.
Well I always wanted to be a writer and when I heard that Mr. Lane was looking for three pupils to write for the school I jumped at the chance. I’m looking forward to writing on the school blog and being able to say “I wrote that”.
I am truly grateful to have been chosen to be on the St. Corban’s B.N.S. blog team. I would like to thank Mr. Lane for giving me such an opportunity and hopefully it will be a great experience through the school year!
As per the text sent out on Tuesday, we will be having a non-uniform day in support of GOAL this Friday. The boys should wear their casual clothes to school and bring a small donation.
Our blog is maintained by members of staff as well as students (under staff supervision). We hope you enjoy our posts!
