Due to the weather this year we ran a succession of Sports Days. Children from 1st to 6th classes were grouped into 8 teams. The Woahs, The Money-makers, The Nifty 9’s, No Name, Fastest Friesians, Unbeatable 8, The Reckless Rebels, The Rocks.

Events included: Relay race, 3 legged race, hurdles, hoola hoops, water relay, skipathon, basketball, & wellie throwing.

Our winners were Unbeatable 8 – well named indeed!

Look at our photos.


Junior Tour

On Friday 21st June Junior & Senior Infants & 1st class were very excited. We were going on our school tour! We went all the way to Turoe Pet Farm. We played on bouncy castles, in bale pools, we met fluffy rabbits and saw lots of chickens and doves. We went on a lovely walk around the farm and we fed goats, lambs, llamas, alpacas, ponies and cows along the way. We also checked for the evil troll under the bridge! We saw lots of fairy doors and even a fairy playground. We all had a super day and when we got back to the school we had ice lollies!

See our photos.

Castledaly Tidy Towns

Darren Egan (Tidy Towns, Castledaly) was also with us to announce the winners of the Poster Competition aimed at promoting Green Recycling. The winning poster was designed by Sean, Áine and Kate. It has since been enlarged and will be displayed near the recycling facilities at the old school.

Darren and his committee were highly impressed by the standard of all entries and judging was difficult. Well done to all who entered.

Lastly the Cathaoirleach helped us to launch our next initiative with the Tidy Towns re GREEN DOG WALKERS. Details to follow.


Visit from Cathaoirleach

We were delighted to welcome the Cathaoirleach of Westmeath County Council, Mr. John Dolan, to Kilcleagh N.S. on Tuesday May 7th. He gave us a brief talk on local government and the European Parliament and outlined the responsibilities of people elected to work in those positions. He also reminded us of the importance of exercising our democratic right to vote for our representatives once we reached 18 years of age.
