First Day Sept 2021

On Tuesday August 31st we welcomed 17 new little people to Kilcleagh N.S. There was great excitment, laughter, greetings and a few tiny tears!

Senior Infants were on hand to show our newcomers the way around.

It didn’t take long for everybody to get to work. Our work is play! Have a look at our photos.



Monday June 21st – Happy Summer Solstice!

We had an amazing day in Kilcleagh N.S.

“The Fun Factory” came to our school.

We had great fun – we played soccer, basketball, tug of war, dodgeball, arts & crafts, orienteering, multiball, handball, and an obstacle course.

We had ice pops at lunchtime and in the mid afternoon.

When our activities were finished Ms. O’Connell got us pizza, chips and a drink. We had worked up a great appetite!

We are grateful to our Board of Management for this treat.

Have a look at our photos and share our fun.



Sports Day June 2021

Sports day 2021

In the morning, 3rd-6th took part in the Westmeath GAA skills challenge. We hand-passed the ball over the bar, we scored points and solo’ed around the pole. Then we played a match while the other classroom played a striking and passing game with Nico. The infants did an obstacle course with Mrs. O’Connell.

The second part of the day, we had our miniature version of our original sports day in our class bubbles. We participated in the obstacle course, a running relay, no hands relay and finally the water relay. We had a great day.


Sacraments 2021

Our European Project

Europe is one of the seven continents, made up of a large number of countries. We celebrate European Day on the 9th May. In class, we have been learning about the rivers and mountains of Europe. For example, Mount Elbrus is the highest mountain. 

We also made European timelines from the 1900s to now relating to sports, historical events, wars, peace deals and inventions around Europe. 

There are many famous landmarks in Europe on which we modelled our clay sculptures. First, we had to mould the clay using our hands and clay tools. We allowed them to dry and then we spray painted them. You can see pictures of these, our country factfiles and our excellent baking skills in the form of delicious landmarks. We enjoyed sampling them all! 


Sacrament of Reconciliation.

We had a lovely day yesterday as Second Class received the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

There were a few nerves but mostly lots of excitement. Here are a few photos and videos for you to enjoy. We missed having our families with us on such a special day but look forward to celebrating First Communion with you all on 12th June.



Muireann and Sinann

We are so proud of Muireann (2nd class) who has won an art competition hosted by Coventry University.

Muireann submitted her drawing of Sinann, the mythological lady associated with the River Shannon.

She had won €250 towards arts supplies for the school.

Well done Muireann.

Have a look at Sinann!


New life in Spring (coming soon to a Lily Pond near you).

Junior and senior Infants have been watching our frogspawn turn to tadpoles and we’re waiting for their legs to appear.

We learned our biggest word “metamorphosis.” We learned a froggy poem and we even have a song

We made our own ponds showing the life cycle of a frog and we even made some cute little green frogs.




We are super proud of Brian who completed a 6.5 km run recently, well done Brian, that is a fabulous  achievement.



 We had great fun preparing for Easter, have a look at our Easter Bunnies and Easter Eggs.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter and looking forward to returning on Monday 12th April.
