Awards / Open Day

Thursday June 21st was a very big day for all of us in Kilcleagh N.S.

We finally were able to see our finished art pieces – the 4 completed montages were on display in our gym.

Everybody had worked on a canvas and there was great excitement as the children searched for their own. Our Artist In Residence – Rosemarie Langtry was on hand to open the exhibition and we thank her for her hard work.

The school is, as always, very grateful to Westmeath County Council for their contribution to the project.  We could not do this work without their financial input.

Next on the agenda were the end of year school awards – our Sportsperson of the Year for 2018 and the Award for Contribution to School Life:

George from 6th class and Sean from 5th class were the deserving recipients.

We also had lots of little visitors on the day – they came with their parents to see what their junior infant classroom looks like and to meet each other before big school starts on August 31st.

We had a very busy afternoon – but we still weren’t finished as “Summersong” was on at 7 pm the same evening. It went really well and we said a bittersweet goodbye to our 6th class.

We also raised €500.47 towards school funds for which we are extremely grateful.

We took lots of pictures, so have a look…
