Huge congratulations to Jason in sixth class who will be playing in Croke Park on July 3rd in the Mini 7s Hurling competition. 

It is a huge achievement to be representing his family, school and club in Croke Park. Jason had a fantastic year on the pitch and his hard work and effort has paid off.

Sixth Class Graduation

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.

Class of 2022!

Active Week 2022

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.
