Our 6th class graduation was celebrated by Fr. Cleary here at the school. All our accomplishments were acknowledged today.
We thank the Parent’s Association who kindly surprised the 6th class with balloons and hoodies. They also supplied tea and coffee to our visitors.
They were also spoilt by Margaret and Clíona who treated them to fabulous cupcakes.
A special word of thanks to our past pupil Patrick Reale for presenting the hurling and football medals to our boys. The winning team also received a framed photograph which was kindly given by Don Moloney.
To round the day off each child received an ice cream compliment of the Board of Management.
We wish our 23 graduates the very best for the future.
We had a fantastic week for Active week 2022 at Knockainey National School. We began the week with Active Walks around the parish. Getting our steps up and taking part in walking challenges.
Our 3rd to 5th Class took the younger classes for Active Stations on Monday doing games such as basketball, penalty shootout, tug of war and hit the target challenges.
On Tuesday we had our GAA Coach Callan and worked on our footballing skills. The children loved this. Our 6th class worked with our younger classes for a welly throwing competition and a game of capture the flag.
On Wednesday we had a visit from the victorious u14 Girls Football winning Team. The girls beat Feoghanagh-Castlemahon 2-5 to 1-4 in the Final.
Well done girls!
It was lovely to have the girls in to show off their trophy. They were an inspiration to all the children in the school. It was lovely to see some past pupils returning with silver wear.
We have had such an incredible year in school. The children have taken part in so many activities and sports. The engagement from all has been excellent. Onwards and upwards for next year.
We, the Green Schools Committee, wish to thank all of the parents, staff and pupils in Knockainey NS for all of their help this year. Thanks to your support we were able to achieve our goals this year.
We look forward to next year when we will apply for our 6th Green Flag!
Today we had our annual sole-mate walk challenge which was organised by our Parents Association. This year €1966.50 was raised. Thanks to all for donating and taking part. This money will go towards the end of primary school gift for the sixth class and for subsidising school tours.
