Athletics in UCD

Today our 5th and 6th classes were represented by 28 classmates who took part at the Cumann na mBunscoile athletics event in UCD.

The team travelled by bus accompanied by Mr. Lowery and Ms.O’Brien and what a day they had!

Early in the afternoon, we were delighted to hear the great news that the U14 boys’ relay team had come 1st overall and were bringing home the cup for the first time in TEN years.

When the team returned to school they were greeted at the gate by all the 5th and 6th classes who clapped and cheered them home. We were all dazzled by the number of medals they were wearing!

In addition to those five medals of the U4 relay team, all of our relay teams reached the finals with the U12 girls’ team achieving medals for 3rd place.

In the individual sprints, Sadie Meade ran the race of her life to finish 2nd and Cathal Joyce and Ali Woods both won 3rd place medals.

Well done to all the athletes who gave it their very best today and a huge thanks to the organisers, Mr. Lowery and Ms. O’Brien who couldn’t stop smiling all afternoon.

Castleknock Tidy Towns Information

Castleknock’s entry for the 2023 SuperValu TidyTowns National competition has recently been submitted. We are asking that local residents help us out where they can by having the area outside where they live kept free of litter and looking well – thank you.

We are always inviting people to volunteer with us, to join the Saturday Clean-Ups. We operate on a ‘Take part when you can’ policy, so you don’t have to attend every week, just when it suits you. We meet at Myos car park every Saturday morning at 10 am. We return to Myos again at 12 noon for a welcome cuppa and a chat. Email us at to connect, and then just turn up. We provide high-vis bibs, gloves and all the equipment needed. We’d be delighted to have you onboard.

Holy Communions

Ms. Mc Gann, Ms. Corry classes made their communion on Saturday in a beautiful reverent ceremony. The PTA then  treated them to a little party while their families had refreshments in the hall.

Good News for Parents and Guardians.

Back in October, our PTA held a very successful uniform recycling event. We hope to hold another in JUNE, so please don’t discard any uniforms your children have outgrown. We will post further details later in the term.

We are also delighted that the government has provided funding for us to purchase books, workbooks and copies, so parents will only need to fill a pencil case for their children in September.

Both of these initiatives will be  a huge benefit to all our families with the expense of returning to school nest September.



5th Camogie

The 5th class camogie team were playing again yesterday. They met stiff opposition in St. Enda’s and were delighted to win with a 5.3 to 2.0 scoreline. Well done, girls on your second win this season.
