Congratulations to Pádraig O’ Callaghan (4th class) who was recently named ‘Limerick Person of the Month’. Pádraig is a worthy winner of this prize. His weekly Paudcasts are both inspirational and motivational.
Pádraig and his family attended the Strand hotel for a presentation and Pádraig was interviewed by the Limerick Leader. Since winning Pádraig has received messages from Seamus Coleman (Ireland soccer captain) and John Kiely.
The Parent’s Association are donating money raised from the raffle today which is €340 to Special Olympics. Well done all.
Well done Pádraig, both students and staff here at Knockainey N.S are all extremely proud of you and everything you have achieved so far. You are an inspiration. Keep up the good work.

For the months of April and May, students in the younger rooms – Juniors to Second have been patiently observing the magical process of metamorphosis unfold before their very eyes.
Mr.Cleary, Mrs.Conway and Ms. Morris welcomed five new additions into their classroom in the form of five hungry caterpillars.
These caterpillars grew significantly over the course of ten days, at which point they began to form their chrysalises and begin the metamorphosis process. The children anxiously waited for two weeks for butterflies to emerge and were very lucky to witness this magical process unfold, with some even been caught on camera. This was an amazing experience for both the pupils and staff. During National Biodiversity Week, we set our 15 Painted Ladies free.
Many thanks to all the children involved for keeping a close eye on the caterpillars and keeping us all update on their progress.
Well done to all and many thanks for your continued support, The Green School Committee.
Pádraig is a pupil here in Knockainey National School. During lockdown he and his father Brian set up the ‘Monday Motivation Paudcast.’ It is a 60 second motivational video which appears every Monday morning online.
Since starting, the ‘Paudcast’ is going from strength to strength with people all around the world tuning in to watch it. Each week we receive emails of praise and admiration here at the school.
Pádraig recently appeared on the RTE show ‘Nationwide’ alongside his Mam and Dad. He also spoke on the Special Olympics World Forum and the Irish Primary Principals’ Network forum as well as featuring on many radio stations.
The staff and students here at Knockainey National School are extremely proud of you Pádraig, you are a true inspiration, and we wait eagerly for your ‘Paudcasts’ every Monday.
