Last Sunday 21st October four of our 6th class students represented Scoil Naomh Eltin in a quiz in Rochestown Park Hotel. The quiz was part of the Cork Chapter of Credit Union's International Credit Union Day celebrations. After 10 rounds of extremely challenging questions our team of Saoirse, Ruairidh, Ronan and James came tied for fourth. They competed fantastically well and were truly a CREDIT to their school. Well done all!
Over the past few weeks pupils in 5th and 6th class have been working hard to create a short science video under the guidance of their teacher Mr O'Brien for the 'ReelLIFE SCIENCE' video competition.
The video is based on the topic of Ocean Acidification. Pupils got a great insight into how film is produced, we had fun using our green screen to create our backdrops.
We hope you enjoy our short video.
Well done to all the boys and girls who competed in the annual Sciath na Scol competition. We are incredibly proud of the effort pupils have made over the past few weeks. We have seen a huge improvement in all players and we hope they will continue their training with Kinsale GAA club.
"Cleachtadh a dhéanann maistreacht".
Thank you to their coaches Mr. Lyons, Mr. Wright, Mr. O'Donovan and Mr. O'Brien.
The Scoil Naomh Eltin choir “Harmonious” were delighted to perform at Culture Night 2018 in St. Multose Church on Friday September 21st. The choir performed our unique version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in two part harmony. We are exceptionally proud of our choir pupils who demonstrated great discipline and dedication.
Special thanks to Ms Caoimhe Mc Carthy for accompanying us on the flute, Mr David O’ Leary for accompanying us on the guitar and Ms. Claire O Shea for accompanying us on the harp. We are so lucky to have such talent in our school.

This is a very special 11 year old boy from 5th class in Scoil Naomh Eltin who sets Lego time aside every day to build his very own Lego creations. During this time he builds the best funfair designs we have ever seen. His accuracy, imagination and precision is so impressive. His first design is called 'Air fly', it is the tallest ride out of the three, it is the only ride with a sign. Can you see it? It is a fully moving ride and has gondalas for seats. The second is a picture called 'jetfire', It is a mondial top scan and the first ride he ever built. The last ride is called freakspin and he reckons it sounds better written as one word. It is an inverted enterprise and lifts up to 45 degrees. You can also see a picture of this boy with his other creations, a dragon, a mystery wheel and a wind turbine! We are so proud of you and look forward to seeing many more creations!

On Tuesday 12th of June the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run came to Kinsale. Taking place over the 4 days leading up to Opening Ceremony in Tallaght Stadium on Thursday 14th, the Flame of Hope makes it's way around Ireland visiting primary schools and service centres across 15 counties.
Rang 2 and Rang 4 made their way to the Garda station in Kinsale to witness the torch and celebrate in this wonderful occasion. Some lucky pupils even got an ice-lolly to enjoy on the walk back to the school!
