Fundraising Weekend

New School Building Fundraising Update

Kilcornan National School's fundraising weekend took place from 31st March-2nd April 2023. Several events were organised to raise much needed funds for the new school building.

The weekend began with a bang when the Easter disco had all the children dancing the night away, waving their glowsticks and consuming lots of sugar! Everyone had a brilliant time. On the Saturday night it was the turn of the adults who came out to enjoy live music courtesy of the wonderful Yvonne McCarthy. There was a super relaxed atmosphere as everyone caught up and enjoyed chatting with neighbours and friends.

The BIG event of the weekend was the Family Fun Day and Tractor Run held at Hollypark Stables. The weather was glorious and 88 tractors came along to the event from vintage models to state of the art tractors. They all enjoyed a scenic run through the countryside. The family fun day was a great success with the queue for face painting beating all records. The wheel of fortune never stopped spinning as the Kilcornan NS children were eager to win the much coveted homework passes! The Easter bunny was met by lots of families who also took part in the Easter quiz and colouring competition. The day was a resounding triumph and it was wonderful to see everyone enjoying the sunshine whilst raising money for the school.

The fundraising team are thrilled to announce that these events raised a whopping €11,645!

A HUGE thank you to everyone that came along and supported the weekend. It will allow the school to make fantastic facilities for your children to benefit from in the future. Additionally, Kilcornan National School and the Parents Council would like to thank everyone that was involved in organising and running this weekend. It took many hours of work to get these events off the ground and would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of the staff and wider school community.

There will be a few more fun events coming this term to keep the fundraising moving forward. Details will follow shortly.

Credit Union Art Competition

Kilcornan National School had five winners in the Credit Union Art Competition. Thank you to Patrick Ranahan from Cois Sionna Credit Union for visiting the school to present the winners with their prizes. Congratulations to everyone!

World Book Day

World Book Day was celebrated in Kilcornan National School during our Book Fair week. In order to celebrate the importance of reading and the amazing characters that take us into their lives when we read, pupils were invited to dress up as their favourite characters. The variety of costumes was incredible and thank you to the parents for working so hard on creating them. Pupils had a super day at school. See our photo gallery for more pictures of the day!

Christmas Hamper

Well done to our Christmas Hamper winners Kate and Muireann! A big thank you to our super secretary Lorraine for creating the beautiful large Christmas hamper to raise funds for the school. Thank you also to former teacher Jim Mc Grath for donating the second hamper to the school.
