Ballygiblin N.S. is situated in the countryside, approximately three miles outside Mitchelstown on the Ballyporeen Road. Ballygiblin N.S. is committed to participation in the Active School Flag, Health Promoting Schools and Green Flag initiatives which encourage the holistic development of all children. Facilities include a spacious playground area with a variety of playground equipment. Children participate in many sporting activities such as swimming, cycling, football, hurling, camogie, tag rugby, soccer and basketball. Older children participate in orienteering, Sciath na Scol (GAA competitions), Cork City Sports (athletics), Swimming Gala and other events/competitions that are feasible to enter. Pupils of 6th Class participate in the Annual Galtee climb in June. So we were delighted with such a great background in climbing already to be asked to install 12 of our Traverse Climbing Boards.
Prior to installation the school created a lovely background image on the wall to create the ultimate climbing experience for the children. A lovely colourful area has been created for students returning after the Easter break.
