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. We appreciate your support so much. 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 fearful Fifth Class crazies!!

An Amazing Artist

  • Little did we know that among the super scholars of Fifth Class there was an ‘Awesome Artist’! Our artist was selected from a number of entries, open to all primary schools in south Dublin, so we are particularly proud of our winner! The theme was ‘Sharing is Caring’, and you can see the other brilliant entries on display in the offices of the Dún Laoghaire County Council. Congratulations again to our amazing and awesome artist!




Another Awesome Artist!

  • It seems the creativity in Fifth Class is never ending – the number of amazing, awesome artists is not limited to one! Well done to our super scholar who entered a fantastic drawing into the Dun Laoghaire Council ‘Sharing is Caring’ Art Competition. As this entry was chosen from over 2,750 additional entries we are particularly proud of this achievement  – well done to our amazing artist!!



An Amazing Athlete!

  • Huge congratulations to our Fifth Class pupil, pictured with other pupils involved in the challenge, who recently participated in a 5km run from Sallynoggin to Shankhill. What is most impressive is our young athlete was not deterred by puddled roads, wet hills, marshy fields and blustery beaches, and they ran in hail and rain, to complete a magnificent challenge. I’m tired just thinking about it! Well done, we’re very proud of you!



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!!!

Super Scribes!!

  • Huge salutations to the latest of our St. Kevin’s scholars, this time two wonderful ‘super scribes’, meaning they produced wonderful writing that was ‘write on’!!  We work hard at our handwriting in St. Kevin’s and we love to see two gents, like these guys, producing writing that is simply superb. Well done to J-Lizzle and D-Man, legendary stuff guys!!



Christmas County Champion!

  • We are truly delighted in our Fifth Class in St. Kevin’s, as the Recycled Christmas Decoration Celebration Ceremony took place on Friday in the County Hall in Dun Laoghaire. The awarding of the trophy is the culmination of the annual competition in which all South Dublin primary schools select a recycled Christmas decoration champion. Each school champion is then invited to County Hall to participate in the Celebration Ceremony where they each receive a prize from the Cathaoirleach before the ‘County Champion’ is announced. And of course, we are delighted, as the ‘County Champion’ was none other than our super scholar in Fifth Class, pictured below!

    Speaking about the competition An Cathaoirleach, Cllr. Marie Baker said: “Every year the Council’s Christmas Tree is decorated with the most fabulous decorations. It is wonderful to see so much effort, artistic flair and imagination exhibited in all the decoration. The standard of decorations this year is exceptional and I’m sure the judge’s must have had a difficult job selecting an overall winner’. So all in St. Kevin’s are delighted our super scholar was the pick of the bunch! RTÉ were on hand to capture the event for their News2Day programme which you can see if you click on the link below. Well done again to our superstar, what a super scholar and amazing artist!! Now click on the link to see the her being interviewed!

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! Click on the link to see all the action, especially the fantastic folks from Fifth Class singing like superstars!

Meet the St. Kevin's Choir!

  • The St. Kevin’s Choir formed recently and in the last week have come together and begun to ‘jam’, working on songs they like, melodies, harmonies and everything in-between! We thought we would give you a sneak preview of our new choir in action. The talent shines brightly already, and the choir sound fantastic – if the guys are this good after one week, we can’t wait to see how good they are at our next assembly. Maybe we should get the autographs now, before we have to pay for the privilege! Click on the links to see the guys in action and if you recognise the tunes as well as our Fifth Class singers!

Our Table Quiz Team

  • Huge congratulations to both our Fifth Class Table Quiz team, who participated in the Irish League of Credit Unions National Schools Table Quiz on Friday evening.  The competition was contested closely by all teams and the questions were far from easy which made the achievements of all teams more impressive. Our Fifth Class performed wonderfully well, finishing in fourth place, just points shy of the winners! Check out our commendably cerebral competitors below, who shall return to compete again in the scholarly showcase next year!
