This month of May has been a hectic month for sports….
Swimming lessons in Clonmel swimming pool commenced on the 2nd of may the first of a series of 8 lessons which will conclude the final week of school. The children thoroughly enjoyed swimming and the feel of an approaching summer that accompanied it.
On the 5th of May we played a tag rugby blitz against six other local schools. Killurney played in three triumphant games and represented the school wonderfully.
Newtown NS visited us on the 10th of may to play a series of matches. Both schools embraced their opponents with a friendly competition whilst having tremendous fun. Biscuits and refreshments were served afterwards as the children mingled.
The 19th of may our bus departed from school and brought us to the Pedigree day in Clonmel. The children enjoyed a busy few hours of watching :llamas ,bees ,donkeys ,a horse, calves horse shoes being made and sheep being sheered . This was both an entertaining and educational day for the children.
The 13th of may was a delightful day as first and second class celebrated their communion. It was a peaceful church ceremony said by Fr. Ryan followed by their individual celebrations .Everyone had a terrific day wearing their dresses and suits with pride .The day was gifted fantastic weather resulting in beautiful photographs .
Mia Kearney has paid numerous visits to us over the previous few weeks working with us on a local heritage project. We are immensely grateful for her generosity and efforts on helping make our gigantic witch project. This is for the memorial of the congregation on Sliabh na mBan in 1848 . There will be a display in kilcash hall in July .
Standardized testing commenced on the 22nd of May and was completed on the 1st of June. The children are relieved to be finished and are now looking forward to unwinding slightly in the coming weeks
