Well done everyone!
Congratulations to the 6th class students who made their Confirmation. Once again the students were a credit to the school. Their prayers, songs and efforts in general made the ceremony as beautiful as it was. A huge thanks to Mr Wright and Ms Fahy along with Fr Young, Sr Mary and all the parents who helped with preparations for the ceremony.
Well done everyone!
Our annual school tour to Dingle was again an extremely successful trip away with a fantastic 6th class. The children did their school proud once again with such fantastic effort, behavior and as always their impeccable manners. Teachers and students alike returned exhausted having had two wonderful days of fun in Dingle.

MJ has been working on using a computer coding programme called Scratch since September. Scratch is an excellent introductory coding programme and it's free to download https://scratch.mit.edu/download
MJ completed his first coded game last week. Well done MJ!
With our Halloween midterm imminent, after school football training on Thursdays was too coming to an end. Children from 4th to 6th class took part in a Halloween Football blitz to mark the end of football training. With eight teams competing there were plenty exciting games played where children showcased all the new and existing array of skills they had. The two teams that made it all the way to the final were Dublin and Kildare with Kildare coming out as narrow victors. Kildare's captain, Ross McCarthy, was very gracious in victory paying tribute to the opposition, his team mates, coaches and teachers. A great day was had by all!
Pictured above are our two outstanding Sciath na Scol teams that competed and represented our school fantastically this year. The teams played four well fought games and did themselves, their classes and the school very proud. With some extremely impressive skills on show the future is bright for Kinsale GAA.
With our school tour just around the corner excitement was growing. However we still needed to come up with a way of helping with the expenses for the tour. 6th class students came up with the idea of a Bake Sale.
On the Thursday before our Easter holidays we took over the Halla. We filled it with an array of baking that would have to be seen to be believed. Students from every class got an opportunity to purchase the merchandise and there wasn't a dissatisfied customer all day.
We made a fantastic €328. A huge thanks again to all the parents, children and teachers who went to so much effort with their baking.
