Today was a very special occasion in Knockainey NS as we had the 6th class graduation. We had a lovely ceremony which was led by Fr. Cleary.
On the return to school the class were cheered at the entrance by the Junior Infants – a fitting gesture to see the youngest class cheering on their sixth class role models as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
Afterwards the class received a gift of a 6th class hoodie from the Parents Association.
The children were delighted with their new hoodies.
Many thanks to the Parents Association for the hoodies, treats and balloons. A big thank you to Margaret as well for the lovely cupcakes!
A special word of thanks to John O’ Connor of Hospital Handball club who kindly gave coaching lessons to the 6th class pupils over the last few weeks. The children really enjoyed the training and they also learned about the history of handball and famous handballers.
John also held a raffle and some of the children won some fantastic prizes. If any of the children are interested in joining a handball club, make sure to check out the Hospital Handball Facebook page or else contact us here at the school.

It is with great pleasure that we announce our success in our application for our fifth Green Schools flag, the Biodiversity flag. We received this flag via post today, however the official award ceremony will not take place until September of the new school year 2021/22.
An Taisce commended the boys and girls of Knockainey National School and their dedication to the Green Schools initiative over the last 10 years.
It is acknowledged that our application was submitted well in advance of the end of June deadline and it was of a very high standard.
Cathy Baxter, Green Schools Manager stated that the work that we are doing, which was evident through our application and on our website, is truly amazing.
Many thanks to all for your continued support. Le Meas,
