Our Spookathon!!

  • Once again our Spookathon was a ‘spooktacular’ success this year. Our sincere thanks to our parents and guardians, your support this year was absolutely fantastic. Our thanks too, to our terrifyingly talented teachers, screamingly super special needs assistants and spookastically superb secretary, who all engaged with the Spookathon spirit. And to the awesomely attired scholars of St. Kevin’s, we had Batman and Barbie, pirates and princesses, zombies, pizzas and iphones, what a brilliant bunch you were this year! If scaring is caring, we’re an immensely fortunate school! Click on the link to see if you can spot any more of the ghouls and ghosts that haunted Second Class!

Pizza Party!

  • We thought you might recognise these familiar faces who were the recent winners at our attendance awards – and so earned an invitation to our pizza party!! Well done to our particularly perfect pupils, enjoying pizza for particularly perfect attendance!!



St. Kevin's Got Talent!

  • All at St. Kevin’s would like to congratulate our latest super scholar who is also a star away from St. Kevin’s! Our super scholar, pictured, recently attended the auditions for Britain’s Got Talent in Dublin and entertained the judges with a popular Meaghan Trainer song. It was a brilliant performance and we hope we see our young super scholar on the television soon! Well done!!



Our Cake Sale!!

  • On Friday, our Parents’ Association hosted their annual cake sale in the Parents’ Room. All our parents and guardians were invited to bring or bake a cake – and we must say a huge and tasty thanks to all our parents and guardians who baked and brought cakes of all types and sizes – we had very cool chocolate cakes, fantastic fairy buns, super Swiss rolls and any number of brilliantly bakes goods and terrifically tasty treats. Our thanks as always for your support on the day. It was a great success and we certainly had a bunch of happy, cake-filled pupils, check out our two super scholars from Second Class in the picture!!!

Mouse Returns!

  • Last week Mouse returned to our class but this time he wasn’t alone!! In fact, Mouse had brought along a friend, a new pupil who was ‘furry’ good in class!! We were very nice to our new pupil, as he can sometimes get a little ‘spiky’ if he isn’t happy! We all had a cuddle and then we went exploring in our yard, to find food for our furry little friend!! We are delighted Mouse is working with us again, we are doing lots of great projects with him! Check out the snap of our new pupil!



Our Christmas Shows!

  • Our Christmas shows took place in the week before our Christmas holidays. It was a great morning, with the talents of each class shining brightly, from our Junior Infants who performed the ‘ABC Nativity’ to the simply superb singing of our Senior Infants, who all sported the coolest Christmas jumpers! The amazing play, ‘Away with the Manager’ was performed by the amazing actors in our First Class and Second Class, along with a wonderful choral performance from our singing scholars in our Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth classes. Our newly formed school choir also made their début performance. It was a great morning and our sincere thanks to all our parents and guardians who offered their support and encouragement on the day!

St. Kevin's Super Scholars!!

  • These guys are well on the way to greatness! Our super scholars were typically super this week, in their homework, attendance, school work and manners! In St. Kevin’s we love to see everyone ‘on the line at ten to nine’, we love to see happy handwriters creating super sentences and perfect poems and we love to see super smiles. These guys achieved each of these – but we must give special mention to a little lady who excelled in her reading too. She has been reading outside the principal’s office each day, and each day he can’t believe who it is – he comes out expecting to see a Sixth Class pupil – and can’t believe such wonderful reading is taking place in Second Class! Well done guys!!



Getting Ready for Bio-Diversity!

  • Biodiversity is the huge variety and variation of life that surrounds our school. This week is our Green School Action Week and for the last two years we have been working on the theme of biodiversity. We have studied the natural environment of our school and come to appreciate the biodiversity that is all around us – from the grass in our yard, to our trees, our flowerbeds, our newly planted and maintained school garden, our outdoor classroom, our bird boxes, our bug hotels, our nocturnal visitors, our project work, it really is all around us. And as always, we are careful and respectful of all the diverse life around us, it is really great to know there is so much going on in our yard, even when we’re not around! And remember, stay keen, stay green – and click on the link to see some of our work so far, we have made some awesome Green School posters and recycled costumes so keep an eye out for us!!

Communion Congratulations!

  • Wow what a bunch of ledge’cakes!! Big congratulations to the pupils of our Second Class who received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday. It was a fantastic day, from a wonderful ceremony to the wonderful weather. Compliments to all our scholars in the ‘Super Second’ too for the ‘style on show’, we enjoyed the ‘fashion show’ in school yesterday too. And of course, we must say a big thank you to our Parents’ Association for organising a beautiful banquet and breakfast reception for all our new Communicants!
