We were delighted to learn that we had received our sixth Green Flag! Ms Morris, Mrs Buckley and two representatives of our Committee went to the Awards Ceremony in Cork to collect our new Green Flag. We look forward to raising this flag soon.

Following our Sixth Class Graduation on June 21st 2023 – we raised our Green Flag.

Butterflies – Seniors, 1st and 2nd Class

Senior Infants, 1st and 2nd Class recently learned all about the life cycle of a butterfly. Each class received a tub of caterpillars and the children  observed them transforming into butterflies. When the butterflies were ready, we released them and had fun releasing them out of their nets.

6th class pupils in Knockainey and Lough Gur recently took part in the Stepping Up Programme with Lisa Ryan. 

This workshop focused on the transition to post-primary school and the pupils got a chance to talk about their fears, anxieties and also what they are looking forward to. 

We would like to thank Lisa. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. 

School Tour 2023

On Tuesday June 6th we had our eagerly anticipated school tour. We set off at 8am from the community centre and headed to Kilkenny.

The Junior end headed to Castlecomer Discovery Park for the day and enjoyed some food at the Jarrow Cafe.

Our Senior end visited Kilkenny Castle, enjoyed some shopping in Kilkenny and then went to Castlecomer Discover Park to finish off the day.

It was a wonderful day that was really enjoyed by all.
