Vegetable Garden

Compost  Miss Kathy Ryan is working with 5th & 6th Class setting up our very own vegetable garden. Kilkenny County Council have very kindly sponsored a compost bin and work is underway to get the garden set up. The pupils have signed up for Sow and Grow and were delighted when we were one of the 500 schools selected to receive free seeds, growing cups and wall charts. Please watch this space for further photos and updates!

O’ Duffy Cup Visits

There was great excitement around the school on Friday when Kilkenny camogie star Claire Phelan brought the O’ Duffy Cup to the school. Claire plays in the backs and was on the Kilkenny team that won the All-Ireland Final in September after a long 22 year wait. Well Done Claire. We hope we will be seeing this cup around the school more often over the next few years!
