It was an early start for 5th class yesterday as they departed Kinsale at 5am bound for Dublin to showcase their project at the RDS Primary Science Fair. Their project explored testing air quality in our homes, and finding ways to improve it. The pupils did a wonderful job of explaining their project to members of the public and to the judges who were impressed with all the data and information they had collected. As a reward for all their hard work Eli Lilly kindly treated the class to pizza. 5th Class represented our school so well and we hope to see some of them representing Kinsale in the Secondary Schools Young Scientist competition in the future.
Today Mr. Jim Deenan visited our school to present the winners from different age catagories with their medals and prizes as part of the First South/Irish League Of Credit Unions art competition. Well done to everyone!
A big thank you to our pupils who put great effort into making cribs. These will be displayed in Kinsale's local shops.
Our Junior Infants are doing a fantastic job teaching all the other students and staff in our school a new Lámh sign each week! They are so good at using Lámh they can now sing using it too!
We had a very exciting visitor today at Scoil Naomh Eltin when Santa arrived by firetruck! The children asked Santa lots of questions and we even sang some Christmas Songs!
Age doesn't matter. Size doesn't matter. Only the clock and the skill of your opponent...
We were very lucky to have Ian Heffernan in from The National Maritime College of Ireland to speak to 5th/6th class about Antarctica. He spoke about the ships used on his visit to Antarctica, where he spent seven years driving boats. We could have stayed listening to Ian's stories all day long. He shared stories about the journey, the weather, animals, adventures and the fun he had while exploring Antarctica, all with some amazing pictures! It was like real life David Attenborough! Thank you Ian for taking time out to come and speak to us in Scoil Naomh Eltin. Take a look at some of the pictures below!
