See you all next term!
We finished up the school term with Halloween games and fancy dress. All the children took part in the fun which included 'wrap the mummy' and bobbing for apples. A fantastic day was had by all.
See you all next term!
Wednesday 23rd October saw us attending the cross country running in Marlfield.
Well done to Caitriona Tobin, Fred French-Davis and Max O'Reilly who came second in their races.
The children had great fun playing maths games in the hall for maths week.
A huge thanks to Suzanne, Marie and Noelle for volunteering to help out on the day.
On Friday 18th October the school took a field trip to Clonmel. The Senior room visited the South Tipperary Arts Centre to view the Inktober exhibition and take part in some looking and responding activities.
The whole school attended the Museum on the Move exhibition at the Clonmel Museum where they learned all about animals that lived in Ireland during ice age times and those that continue to exist today.
The children thoroughly enjoyed their day out, with the Museum in particular being a big hit.
On Monday 14th October we were visited by Tipperary senior hurlers Seamus Callanan and Mark Keogh who brought along the Liam Mc Carthy cup for all the pupils to see.
We were also delighted to welcome Tipperary ladies intermediate All Ireland winners Cora Maher, Niamh Martin and Orla Winston with the Mary Quinn cup.
The children were star struck when they saw the players walk through the door and were even more thrilled when Seamus Callanan announced that there would be no homework that night!
Well done to all the Senior Room who took part in the Cross Country running in Thurles today, 26th September.
Big congratulations to Fred French-Davis who won gold in the 3rd and 4th class boy's race, and to Max O' Reilly who won bronze in the 5th and 6th class boy's race. Well done also to the 3rd and 4th class girls who came fourth in the team event.
A great day was had by all!
On Friday 20th September the Senior Room went on a history field trip to Templetney graveyard.
All the children had to take grave rubbings, make a list of the people buried within the graveyard along with the dates they died, and complete a questionnaire.
It was very interesting to explore local ruins and learn about local history.
There was much excitement in the school last week as Tipp FM came in to speak to the children. We were very proud of all the pupils, who were well able to chat away about home life and helping out about the house. Although some claims of tidying their rooms may have been slightly exaggerated...!
Hello and welcome back! After a fantastic summer off we are back in the classroom and looking forward to the exciting school year ahead.
This year, we have four new Junior Infants starting with us; Eddie, Ella-Rose, Lily and Sophie. And we are delighted to see they are all settling in so well.
Don't forget to keep an eye on our school news page to keep up to date with what the children are getting up to this year...
As another school year comes to a close, we are very proud to see ten of our pupils graduate from Killurney National School.
The very best of luck to Mark, Johnny, Sam, Lucy, Isobel, Anna-May, Sarah, Lily, Ruby and Hannah as they move on to secondary school and the next stage of their academic lives.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff, parents and pupils who have worked so hard this year, and we look forward to welcoming our new junior infants in September.
Have a great summer break everyone!
