ESB Networks have just confirmed that our electricity restoration time is now tomorrow night at 10.00 pm. Scoil Naomh Eltin will therefore remain closed tomorrow Wednesday October 18th.
Scoil Naomh Eltin now has water restored. However our school has no electricity as it is one of 902 customers on a specific line in the Kinsale area with a major fault. I have just spoken again with ESB networks who are aware of the seriousness of this situation. Our School cannot open on October 18th without power. If any change occurs in this I will update immediately.

Some of you might have heard of Kornel's cat Miska already or perhaps have seen him hiding in a very strange place......a rooftop maybe? While Kornel Ochmanski from 4th class was on holidays, he came back to find that his cat was missing. While Miksa was busy playing hide and seek, Kornel was contacting people to help him find his cat. Finally, his pet cat was spotted hiding on a roof and was helped down by a cherry picker in our very own Kinsale town. Lots of people came to watch the cat being rescued and he is now famous all over Ireland. Even the examiner gave a full article on the drama. You can see pictures of the famous Miska and Kornell in the examiner by clinking on the link below. All of us are so happy you have Miska back Kornell!
An outline of the school’s policy on “Managing Students with Chronic Health Conditions at Scoil Naomh Eltin” is now to be found in the "Notes" Section of the school's website.
As the school has a student with anaphylaxis (a severe and potentially life-threatening nut allergy) I have also included below an explanatory note relating to this condition.
Please do not send your child to school with nuts of any type, nutella, peanut butter or similar.
Thank you for your support in this serious matter.

What is anaphylaxis?
Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. It may occur within minutes of exposure to the allergen although sometimes it can take hours. It must be treated quickly with adrenaline.
Any allergic reaction including anaphylaxis occurs when the body’s immune system overreacts to a substance that it perceives as a threat. On rare occasions there may be no obvious trigger.
Common triggers of anaphylaxis include:
Allergies are increasingly common and it is likely that there will be students in your school with allergies and some may be at risk of anaphylaxis. 1 in 50 children are allergic to peanuts or tree nuts.
School will open for the new school year on Wednesday August 30th.
