Extension to Kilrickle National School Highly Commended

We are delighted that our new school extension was Highly Commended in the Best Educational Building section at the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland or RIAI Awards recently. Not only that but the project received a special mention in the Architectural Association of Ireland Awards (AAI) 2017 too. Our school's project even features in the current issue of Architectural Ireland. This new addition to our school received international attention also; being a featured piece on some important architectural websites focusing on the educational setting. Please click on the links below to find out more. Many thanks must once again be given to all those involved in making this project a reality. It is a great source of pride for our school and one which generations of children attending Kilrickle National School will benefit from for years to come.

Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

Today, Ms. Maura Larkin; local representative of Team Hope collected Christmas Shoe Boxes full of treats and goodies for children less fortunate in foreign countries. These shoe boxes were kindly donated by the pupils of Kilrickle NS. This is a fantastic project and offers a great opportunity to spread the Christmas cheer. It's a reminder of how blessed and fortunate we are while also receiving the gift of giving and bringing the joy of Christmas to children elsewhere. To find out more about where our shoe boxes go please visit Team Hope's website by clicking on the following link: Stories from Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal
Thank You Certificate from Team Hope sent to our school. Míle Buíochas!
