The Restaurant

This month we have been exploring the theme of 'The Restaurant' in Aistear. We set up our own restaurant where we played the roles of waiters, chefs and customers.

We made some delicious looking food at our Play Dough Station...

...And got creative making our own menus

In 'Small World' we made our own restaurants. Everyone worked really hard and we made great use of our imaginations. We had car parks, play areas and outdoor seating areas for customers. Some of us even made our own B&B so that our customers could stay the night!

Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal 2019

Many thanks to all the children of Kilrickle NS who once again gave very generously this year to the Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal. These boxes will be delivered straight into the hands of some of the world's most vulnerable children- many of whom will receive no other gift this Christmas.

Many thanks also to our Parent's Association for once again helping organise for very worthy Christmas charity.  

For more information about where our school boxes go please watch the following video:

Our ALDI's Play Rugby Competition Entry

Today we sent our schools's completed ALDI Play Rugby Posters in the post. Parents and children have been collecting ALDI Play Rugby stickers since September with the result that this year we collected well over 600 stickers allowing us to fill two posters. A massive thank you to everyone who collected. We are now in with a chance of winning €50,000 for our school's playing facilities ... so fingers crossed 🤞🤞🤞

Jaydyn's Winning Credit Union Art Competition Entry

Well done to our very own Jaydyn in 5th class who came third in her category in this year's Credit Union Art Competition. The theme of this year's competition was 'The Walk Of Life'. The standard was very high this year with all schools in the Loughrea Credit Union Chapter area taking part. Jaydyn visited St Brendan's Credit Union Loughrea recently to collect her prize. Well done Jaydyn 👌

Baboró 2019

Our school travelled again this year to Babóro’s Children’s Arts Festival in Galway on Friday, October 18th. The junior and senior infants along with first class went to see ‘I Say, You Say’ in Nun’s Island Theatre, while the second to sixth class experienced ‘Baba Yaga’ in the Town Hall Theatre.

For more information on both shows please click: 

Pupils brough a small snack with them and afterwards enjoyed the Millennium Children’s Playground and Skate Park near Galway Cathedral. They really enjoyed the day.
