Lóchrainn na Rónta

Some amazing photos from our Creative Cluster light installation event entitled ‘Lóchrainn na Rónta’. Thank you so much to all the children and their parents who braved the chilly night and came out in force. Sincere thanks to artist Tom Meskell for guiding the children to create these wonderful Selkies, Rocks, Lighthouse, Starfish and lanterns. Thank you Rossa Ó Snodaigh for facilitating the workshops to create the soundscape for the event.

Down the Hill

The children in Sixth Class investigated how the steepness of a slope affects how far a car travels.  Suitable suggestions for fair testing included: not pushing the car; starting the car at the same place each time; using the same car each time.  The children suggested a pattern outlining the relationship between height of slope and distance travelled.

Creative Arts with Tom Meskell

The children in Sixth Class had a fantastic two days of art workshops with Tom Meskell.  They created wire seals, lanterns and jellyfish and covered them in tissue paper in preparation for an artistic light display in conjunction with other locals schools in the area on Enniscrone Beach.  Have a look at the children’s work to date.  An art installation we are all looking forward to.

Moon Landing Capsule

For Engineers Week, the boys and girls in Sixth Class, planned, designed, created, modified, changed and altered some fantastic moon landing capsules.  Well Done to Adam and Nathan who managed to land their capsule from the greatest height in the safest way possible.

Mini-7s Quarter Finals

This morning we were nervous and excited as we hopped on the bus to Skreen for the Mini-7s Quarter Finals.  The winner of Kilglass / Calry / High Park would go on to the semi-finals so there was a lot at stake.

For the first game, we watched as Calry had a comfortable win over High Park.  We were Calry’s next opponents, if they won, they were through.  Cillian opened the score-line with a goal from a free kick.  Our teams were well matched – it was a close game all through.  We were thrilled to be out on top by 1-2.  Scorers: Cillian 2-2, Rian 1-0, Eoghan 1-0

Following a tough win against Calry, we were quite confident against High Park.  We had a comfortable victory to secure our place in the semi-finals.  Scorers: Cillian 0-2, Rian 1-0, Eoghan 3-0, Luke 0-1, Bran 1-0, Oran 1-0

We look forward to preparing for the semi-finals in the coming weeks.

Concern Debates

Well done to Charlie, Adam and Eoghan who performed superbly for Kilglass National School on Wednesday in the second of our Concern Primary debates against Sooey National School.  We were opposing the motion “All schools should be Gaelscoileanna”.

Building on the experience of our first debate with Nathan, Luke and Éireann and after lots of great effort in preparation Charlie, Adam and Eoghan emerged with a draw after the delivery of their speeches and refutes on the day.

Thank you to Sooey National School for two great debates.  Our next team will now turn their attention to our next debate against Ardkeeran National School where we are proposing the motion “Fines should be introduced for households wasting food”.


The children in Sixth Class have been busy working on procedural writing over the last few weeks.  We have created recipes and games using our procedural writing framework and have engaged in lots of science experiments.  Our science experiments have explored many different types of forces.  Here are a few photos which give an insight into some of the wonderful work the children were engaged in.

Oíche Shamhna 2022


The boys and girls in Sixth Class are having lots of fun learning about the adventures of Tom Crean, exploring lines of latitude and longitude, designing and making compasses with magnets and engaging in orientation activities with Ms Duffy.

Scribble Bots

Sixth Class have been busy investigating and exploring our electricity kit.  We have made simple circuits, series circuits and parallel circuits.  We have made circuits with switches, bulbs, buzzers and motors and have grouped materials into conductors and insulators.  We had lots of fun investigating static electricity too.  We put our knowledge to good use and made some scribble bots!
