Well done to our wonderful 3rd & 4th class hurling and camogie players who did us proud in their blitz on Monday last. In sweltering heat, they gave their all against strong opposition from Little Island NS and Glenville NS. Huge thanks to our parent volunteers who ferried our players to and from the venue and also for the delicious and much need ice pops at the end of the day. We are very grateful.
We are so proud of the 52 6th Class students who graduated from Scoil Naomh Eltin this week. The school hall was packed to the rafters with the students' family members to mark their Graduation Mass and Ceremony on Tuesday 21st June. We are very grateful to everyone within the Scoil Naomh Eltin community for making the event so rewarding; Fr Young, students, parents, staff, Parent's Association and Board of Management. The 6th class teachers had the final word with the video below of memories created by the students over the past eight years at Scoil Naomh Eltin . . .
And a big 'thank you' to the wonderful cake provided by the Parent Association!
Scoil Naomh Eltin students represented their school on Friday 3rd June at MTU for the annual Cork City Sports event. There was great excitement, as it was the first time in three years that the event went ahead.
All the students who partook should be so proud of themselves as they were already winners in our school. Our training sessions stood well to our athletes as we had silverware in both singles and races. One student even made the county final! Well done to all.
Maith sibh go léir!
A huge big thank you to everyone who supported us over the past couple of weeks by adding cards to our Initiative box in Supervalu. We are proud to announce that we have now reached our target of 300 cards and completed our entry to hopefully win a share in €50,000. The closing date for entries is the 12th of May 2022 so we are well in time and winners will be announced on the 20th of May 2022!
We would like to say a huge thank you to Eli Lily for their very generous gift of an Easter Egg for everyone in school today. We are looking forward to all that chocolate over our holidays.
Well done to all our girls and boys who took part in our first hurling match v Scoil Barra Naofa last Friday.
It was a very tough game but our students did their best and did us all proud.
Victory wasn’t ours on the day, however we did get the Man of the Match award which went to Cathal Hawkins of 6th class. Congrats Cathal!
As you will all have seen the ‘Save the Bees’ Initiative has been running now for a number of weeks in Smith’s SuperValu, Kinsale and we, at Scoil Naomh Eltin, want to thank all those that have supported our school so far in reaching our goal of 300 cards. Today saw the arrival of our ‘Save the Bees’ School Board. A special thanks to our students in 4th Class A who contributed much needed help by creating our beautiful ‘Save the Bees’ area under the watchful supervision of our fantastic Green School’s Co-Ordinator, Ms. Julie Deasy. Below are a few images captured from today and stay tuned for updates on our progress throughout the time the initiative is running and please remember to support our school by asking for a ‘Save the Bees’ token every time you spend €30 or more in our local Smith’s SuperValu, Kinsale.
Well done to the pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th who took part in their first hurling training session. It was great to have over twenty-five players involved. In glorious conditions, everyone had a very enjoyable first training session. Thank you to our hurling coordinator Mrs Wycherley for organising.
