Sacrament of Confirmation

On Saturday last, 6th April, our 6th class pupils received the Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Francis Duffy in St Patrick’s, Church, Moate. It was a lovely ceremony and we extend congratulations to each of you.




Rugby Trophy Cup Tour

On Monday March 25th we were honoured to welcome the Pro14 Cup and the Heineken Cup to Kilcleagh N.S.

We appreciate Niall Kane, our Rugby coach, taking the time to organise this and the ensuing excitement was palpable. There is great enthusiasm for the game at present among the boys and girls and who’s to say there isn’t a young Robbie or Jack in our midst.

Speaking of Rugby take a moment to persue the photos of 5th & 6th classes last blitz hosted by the Midland Warriors on Friday March 15th.


Pancake Tuesday

Tuesday was a very busy day in the infant classroom. We made pancakes!

We had listened to a story about a very bold pancake which ran away. We had also learned a rhyme about pancakes, so we knew what the ingredients were.

Then we got to work!

We cracked eggs, put in the flour, mixed in the milk until we had a lovely batter.

Then the frying started – we had lemon/sugar or syrup or chocolate on our pancakes and we all agreed that they were delicious. Have a look at our photos.




6th Class Retreat with Fr. Paddy Moran

On Monday 4th March, 6th class had a retreat with Fr. Paddy Moran. This was to help us prepare for our Confirmation on 6th April.

Fr. Paddy Moran was a missionary in Ethiopia for 11 years. For some of his time in Ethiopia he worked in a prison called Arba Minch.

The first thing he did with us was he talked about the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit. He also showed us some paintings people from the Ethiopian Prison completed. All of us had to write about our favourite picture and why we liked it. After that we were put into groups of 3 and showed it to 5th class.

Then Fr. Paddy Moran taught us how to count to 10 in the Ethiopian language.

Before he left Fr. Paddy got us to vote for our favourite picture and he gave it to us for the school.

I enjoyed this retreat with Fr. Paddy Moran.

Athlone Castle Art Competition winner

This is Sean’s winning entry – and I think we can all agree with the judging committee in Athlone Castle that it is a well-deserved winner!









We are very proud to announce that Seán won the recent Art competition in Athlone Castle with his Suffragette poster.

The competition was organised to mark the centenary of us ladies winning the right to vote! Sean received Art supplies for his creation and while collecting his award at a ceremony last Saturday he won a draw securing a day trip to the Castle for his whole class.

Seán’s work is currently on display in the Castle so if you have a moment be sure to pop in for a look.

Well done Seán!



Christmas Child Shoebox Collection

As we do each year we ask the pupils to think of those that may not be as fortunate as ourselves and encourage them to support the Christmas Child Shoebox initiative – and we are delighted to say that there was a great response. The boxes were collected form the school after the min-term break, here are photos’ of some of our contribution to the overall effort. We wish to express our thanks to everyone.


Show Jumping Winner

We are extremely proud of Áine  who recently represented Ireland in show jumping competitions in Chester, England.

Áine secured gold in her main competition and a silver in a subsequent event.  She secured first in an individual class, and then was place in other competitions during the week. Her commitment and perseverance, not to mention her skill, is an example to us all.

Maith thú Áine.
