Credit Union Art Competition

Well done to the children from our school who entered the Credit Union Art Competition. The development in children’s artistic skills were visible as they got older. Here is a selection of pictures from the senior room. Congratulations to Ronan who was a prize winner in the competition.

Reading Buddies

For the month of December, students from Senior Infants to Sixth Class participated in Reading Buddies. This initiative promoted enjoyment in reading. The children gained confidence during this project and become more motivated to read.


Science Week

To mark Science Week, children from 1st to 6th travelled to St. Anne’s N.S. in Rathkeale to attend a Science Show. This event was organised by the STEM Education Department of Mary Immaculate College. The show was great fun and children began to understand how temperatures can cause objects to change in the hot and cold experiments.


Well done to the children in 6th class who led the ten minute Zumba breaks each morning from September to November. It was great to see everybody get involved from Junior Infants to Sixth Class. 

Storm Ophelia Closure

The school will remain closed tomorrow October 17th as instructed by the Department of Education and Skills.

Christmas Greetings

Happy Christmas to you all.

Cappagh football trophies

The children from Croagh N.S. got a lovely surprise on Monday 21st December when the Cappagh football team and their trainer came to visit and they brought their trophies along. The children really enjoyed admiring the West Trophy, the County Trophy and the West League Trophy. Richarda past pupil of the school encouraged the children to do their best in all their sporting activities and that like their schoolwork, hard work will bring its rewards. Thanks to the boys for taking the time to visit us, and to Ms. Stokes for organising the visit. We wish the Cappagh football team and all the other local teams every success in the year ahead.
