We were delighted to welcome John Hayes to our school in September during the Rugby World Cup. John spoke to all the children and visited them in their classrooms, where he took lots of photographs and signed autographs. Children made a huge effort with flags, jerseys and posters.  The proceeds of the jersey day amounted to 250 euro and this has been sent to UNICEF. Click on the thumbnails to view the entire images.

High Nelly Bike Exhibition

We are delighted to host a display of vintage bikes in the school this week. Pupils have taken on the role of researcher and gathered information from the owners of High Nelly bikes. Some of their stories are published on this website.

Science Exhibition

Pupils from all classes took part in a science exhibition and had great fun showing their experiments to their friends and lots of visitors at Croagh N.S. on Wednesday April 2nd. The experiments included examining plants, searching soil for mini beasts, creating sound, writing using mirrors, making reflections, guessing which objects would float and sink, increasing heart rate, making electrical circuits, looking at microbes, investigating magnetism, examining finger-prints, measuring lung capacity, searching for effective cleaning agents and lots lots more. Thanks to everybody who came along and encouraged the pupils, asked questions and took part in the experiments.


The exhibition is one component of the Discover Primary Science and Maths programme. Other aspects of the programme include observing and recording signs of spring in Ireland.  A nurse also visited the school to explain to the children how science and technology are used in hospitals.


School Walk

The Board of Management would like to thank all those who helped to make the school walk a success this year, those who attended on the day, those who helped out and all who contributed generously. 1,588 euro has been collected.

Go raibh maith agaibh!

Míle buíochas to everybody who supported our Colours Day on October 25th. €280 euro was collected in aid of The Diabetes Centre at Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Colours Day

A colours day will take place on Friday October 25th 2013 in aid of ‘The Diabetes Centre’ at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. Children will swop their uniforms for colourful clothes and raise some money for this worthy cause.


As a result of the fundraiser, children throughout the whole school are becoming competent in the use of technology and enjoying  using the ipads to learn. Infants are using them for literacy and numeracy activities while senior pupils are using them to edit their writing, to broaden their geographical knowledge and to research an array of topics.

Science Exhibition

A science exhibition will take place in the school on March 29th. All classes will be involved in the demonstrations. This is the first time that the junior classes will take responsibility for showing and explaining the experiments that they have investigated during the year. Further information and invitations will be issued in the coming days.
