Visit of Victorious Na Fianna Captains

posted by Owen Breslin

It was our great pleasure to welcome the captains of the victorious Na Fianna U17 and U13 hurlers this morning. Sean Rattigan and Jack Fox brought the winners trophys with coach Colm Cassidy. It is always a great achievement to reach a final but to go on and win two finals especially against the backdrop of Covid-19 restrictions is some achievement. Many of our 6th class boys also featured on the U13 team and we congratulate them and their team mates. 

Thanks to Colm Cassidy and the two lads for taking the time to visit!

Halloween fun day

posted by Owen Breslin   [ updated ]

It was a Halloween fun day in Killeigh today and there were hordes of witches, goblins, ghouls, ghosts and all sorts of other little creatures and characters prowling around the school.  Our Halloween dress up day is one of the most eagerly anticipated days in the school calendar and the boys and girls (with a little help from their parents) outdid themselves with their costumes. 
We had a monsters walk after small break and this was followed by an ice cream from the ice cream van.  A coin was collected from each child for Trick or Treat for Temple St. Many thanks for your kind support.

We have received the wonderful news that our schools has once again been awarded the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Plaque of execllence in STEM. Our activities that we completed last year can be found here 
The feedback we received from SFI is as follows:
            Congratulations to KILLEIGH NS! You have achieved the Plaque of STEM for the wonderful work in science , technology,             engineering and maths that you carried out during the year. It is obvious that the school is an engaging, exciting and                     educational hub of stem with a wide variety of activities fostering and developing scientific skills. The junior infants will                 enjoy watching the ash tree grow as they grow themselves during their time in the school. The videos of the Science Fair             captured the buzz and energy so well. There is great credit due to all the learners who continued with their engineering                 challenges during the lockdown. What amazing marble runs and suspension bridges were designed and constructed!                     Lots of budding engineers! Well done and you might consider applying for the Badge of Excellence next time.

First Holy Communion

posted Oct 2, 2020, 1:22 PM by Owen Breslin

The boys and girls of 3rd class experienced disappointment earlier in the year when their First Holy Communion was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. They were in much better form today as they posed for the cameras prior to their First Holy Communion tomorrow.
Thanks to their teachers Ms Molloy and Ms Phelan and to Fr John for their work preparing the children for the big day. 
Thanks also to their parents for their cooperation with the extra measures taken to ensure safety of all tomorrow. We hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow.

This year we are rolling out an exciting new online reading program called myON. This is an international product and has shown great results in improving reading skills and engagement with reading. Many of our classes have started to use myON in class and over the coming weeks, many classes will start to use this for reading at home. 
Most pupils have already been given their login details. myON can be accessed at . Please note while myon is also available as a .com address, this will not work for our school, so please ensure you go to 

I have recorded a short video introduction to myon. Please contact your class teacher if you have any queries about this.
