Some tasty dentures were the final product!

Some of the children in 5th and 6th class recently entered the Carlow Local History Competition. They had to research, write and design a project based on a piece of history about their local area or a person of interest. All the children produced excellent projects and their teacher Ms. Mc Closkey was very proud of the high standard in the class. There was one winner, Sophie Byrne who came 3rd and received a cash prize of 25euros. Well done Sophie and to all who entered!
Ms. McGeeney’s class prepared fact files all about the counties around Ireland. From the North to the South the children created excellent pieces of work which included county colours, facts and more. Take a look at their work..
We were very lucky here in St. Kevin’s. Late last year, in November, we received 8 chicken eggs in an incubator. We eagerly watched and waited for days to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet. Eventually we were pleasantly surprised to see seven out of our eight eggs hatch. They remained in the incubator until they were nice and fluffy and ready to be transferred into the coop. All the children looked after them for nearly two weeks and were so kind and gentle. Some of their names were Fuzzy Wuzzy and Chicken Nugget.
When the chicks were ready, one of our own SNAs Ann Marie, took them home to her farm to mind them and document them for us!
2nd and 3rd class have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. They did some creative writing and used hieroglyphs to really imagine what it was like to be an Egyptian. They learned all about Tutankhamen and the pyramids and did a fact file on them.
