During this difficult time, the children of Kiltealy N.S. have been working very hard at home.
The staff want to say a huge well done to all the boys and girls for keeping up with their school work even though it must be a little challenging at times.
We have received lots of photos over the past few weeks and it is clear to see that the children of Kiltealy N.S. are so talented! We knew that anyway!
They have been doing their school work and their projects but they have also tried out certain activities that we wouldn’t get to do in school!
From Easter egg hunts to climbing mountains, from cooking dinner and baking to painting, gardening and DIY! They have learned lots of new skills at home that they will use throughout their lives so keep working hard, keep helping out at home and keep learning new things!
Have a look at what the boys and girls have been up to…

Under the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 every school in the country is required to have in place an Admission Policy. This policy must be sent to the school patron, in our case the Bishop of Ferns, by April 30th of this school year for their approval.
In formulating the admission policy the board of management is required to consult with parents, as well as school staff, for their feedback. To this effect please find below a link to a draft policy for our school. If you wish to you can read it and if you would like to give some feedback please email it to email@example.com

Bricks 4 Kidz came to our school during engineers week. Their workshops provide a unique opportunity for the pupils to learn about engineering.
Engineers Week is a week-long programme of nationwide events with the aim of celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. The week aims to create a positive awareness and spark enthusiasm about the engineering profession to people of all ages, especially students and their teachers and parents.
LEGO® based education programmes have proven to be a very effective method of introducing engineering concepts to school age children and a Bricks 4 Kidz engineering workshop provides children of all ages with a fun and educational wat to develop their understanding of engineering principles. Bricks 4 Kidz proprietary model builds, which have all been designed by engineers, are accompanied by lesson plans which explain the concept of engineering to the children.
These workshops enable our pupils to estimate, observe, predict, measure and record their findings during the model construction.
