End of Year Show

Once again, the huge amount of talent in our school was on display during our very entertaining end of year show and play ‘The Jungle Book’. Thanks to Nikki our new addition who took over from Katharine Mannion for the beautiful music, to Susan Shaughnessy for the wonderful Irish dancing routine and finally to Sarah Griffin, our drama teacher, for all her hard work and excellent drama classes throughout the year. Well done to our all our students who were excellent on stage and did us all proud:-). Hope everyone enjoyed the show as much as we did!!   IMG_1201   IMG_1212 IMG_1203IMG_1200IMG_1216 IMG_1219 IMG_1223 IMG_1232 IMG_1212 IMG_1214IMG_1204 IMG_1235 IMG_1242 IMG_1247 IMG_1249 IMG_1254 IMG_1259 IMG_1266 IMG_1267 IMG_1269 IMG_1273 IMG_1277 IMG_1281

Basketball Fun!

Huge thanks to Ms. Murphy who organised for Mike Murray from Basketball Ireland to visit our school on Monday the 22nd. It was a superb day of skills, drills, tips and fun. The children from 3rd to 6th thoroughly enjoyed the day especially the intensely competitive games we played at the end:-).

Great Sporting Year!!

A huge congratulations to our girls and boys’ football teams who along with children from Annaghill National School won the Patricia Kelly and Nicholson Cup. Their excellent skills and determination saw them through 3 tough finals and the wins were greatly deserved.

The winning of the Cups concludes a great sporting year for Crumlin N.S. with our girl’s camogie team and boy’s football team reaching the Cumann na mBunscol Finals. Congrats to all involved.

Abbert River Visit

5th & 6th class were lucky to have a visit to the Abbert river where Kevin Crowley from Inland Fisheries showed us all the abundant life found in the river. He caught some young trout, salmon and stickleback fish for the classes to see. It was an extremely informative and interesting visit and a rare opportunity to appreciate the beautiful river and it’s habitat. Many thanks to Kevin and Inland Fisheries.

Bake Sale for Nepal & Tanzania

On the 28th of May C.N.S held a bake sale in aid of the victims of the Nepal earthquake disaster. Proceeds from the bake sale will also go towards a local school in Tanzania where the Rose of Abbey, Éilis Conroy, will be volunteering. We were delighted to have Éilis visit our school and we gave her lots of workbooks and reading books to take with her to Tanzania. We hope the children in Tanzania enjoy them and we wish Éilis the very best on her trip there.

Thanks to 6th class who helped organise the bake sale. They did a great job:-) .
