We had a lovely Wednesday during Catholic Schools Week this year.
The children, staff, parents and especially the Grandparents attended Mass in Kiltale Church for 10am Mass.
Then they all returned to the school for refreshments provided by our Parents’ Association and all classes brought in treats to be shared with our guests.
The children especially enjoyed the grandparents visiting them in their classrooms where they showed them their work and some grandparents shared stories of their time in school.
Well done to everyone who entered the competition this year.
We had four winners Aoife Byrne, Seán Maguire, Clodagh Ryan and Valeria Alpizar.

Today we held a Zoom Assembly where all families were invited to join.
During the assembly we saw the entries for the following competitions:-
- A piece of writing titled, ‘My Covid Lockdown Experience’, recounting your adventures, thoughts, feelings and reflections since the school closed.
- A song and/or a dance on something about your world. You can record yourself playing the song or doing the dance on your own or remotely with other students.
- ‘Junk Art Creature’ competition – We asked you to create a creature made from recycled or/and upcycled materials around the home, it could be imaginary or real, and we asked for a photo of the creature with its name and a brief biography e.g.: where it/he/she came from; what it eats; natural habitat; favourite activities; and common behaviours.
Everybody who took part is a winner and will be receiving a prize!
