On Tuesday the 28th September 2018, Gort Community School opened its doors to 160 excited 1st Year students. This cohort makes up six Tutor classes in the school, and are under the guidance and care of their Year head, Ms. Carmel Neylon. Our 1st Years hail from primary schools around South Galway and North Clare, and some have travelled from even further afield. There are numerous school activities in the pipeline for this cohort, including team-building activities and a ‘Buddy System’ with our current TY students. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and our school website for further updates. As a school, we are looking forward to seeing this year group flourish, and we wish them all the very best as they take this next step in both their academic and personal development.
