Congratulations Girls – Excellent performance made an excellent game 😉

5th & 6th class girls played their neighbouring school Ballindaggin in the mini-7’s, semi-final this afternoon in Coolree pitch. Both teams gave an absolutely fantastic performance from the very second the whistle blew to the extent that we had to go into extra time not once, but twice! In the last few minutes of the game Kiltealy managed to get 3 more points , making them the overall winners of today’s semi-final. Both teams should be extremely proud of themselves as they really portrayed high levels of skill and determination throughout the entire game.

We would like to thank all the parents, friends and classmates who came to cheer us on.

We are due to play Horeswood in the final after Easter, and will keep you all updated of the date and time.

This is a fantastic achievement for the girls and we hope they have a very well deserved break during the Easter holidays.

Tá ” Seachtaine na Gaeilge” ar siúl anois timpeall na tíre agus go háirithe i Scoil Náisiunta Cill t-Síle.

Is í aidhm na Seachtaine ná an Ghaeilge agus cultúr Gaelach a chur chun cinn agus deis a thabhairt do dhaoine iad a bhlaiseadh.  Is féidir le gach duine úsáid a bhaint as an Ghaeilge agus as an gcultúr.

Tá ná páistí i Scoil Náisiunta Cill t-Síle ag déanamh sár- iarracht  gaeilge a labhairt i rith an lae. Beidh “Céili”  agus “Tráth na gCeist” againn an tseachtain seo chugainn agus beidh duaiseanna ar fáil do na buaiteoirí.

This week Ms Byrne’s Junior and Senior Infants are learning all about healthy lifestyles.

In SPHE we examined the food pyramid, we learned that getting plenty of sleep and exercise also helps us to stay healthy.

Today in Science, we had great fun making delicious healthy smoothies.  We made three different flavours , banana, strawberry and banana, strawberry and raspberry.

Not only did we cover being healthy as part of Science and SPHE, but we also covered ” Procedural Writing” in the English curriculum. Our steps were as follows:

1. Put the fruit in the blender.

2. Add milk and yogurt.

3. Turn on the blender.

4. Pour smoothie into a glass and enjoy 😉
