Well done to our LEGO expert in 5th Class who has finished two LEGO expert level kits during Golden Time. We are so proud!
Some pupils from 5th and 6th classes are doing Vex Robotics. We have built a robot and are going to be competing in a robotics competition against 15 other schools on the 17th of January in Sáile. We picked the Flex Build Robot and the robot’s name is Krush. The children in 1st to 6th classes voted to pick the name. In the competition Krush has to work with other robots to move cones and earn points. We will gain extra points because Krush can hang from a bar with its strong hook. We are also very proud that we have programmed Krush to move autonomously. We are looking forward to a very exciting day.
We need to say a big thanks to the transition year students and Ms Hay from Kinsale Community School. We couldn’t have done it without them!

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!
