Kilmac’s Got Talent

Congratulations to all the recent participants and finalists in this year’s KILMAC SCHOOL’S GOT TALENT 2019. The annual competition had singing, dancing, instrumental, magic, comedy and even gymnastics. The Senior winner was Kerry with a hauntingly beautiful rendition of Adele’s “When we were young” while the Junior prize was taken by Sarah Kate for her ballet dance to the accompaniment of the “Toy Story”theme song. Many thanks to Spar Supermarket, Millbridge, Coffee Time cafe and Sweeney’s Filling Station, Termon for their generous donation of prizes.

An Lá Spóirt

We recently held both our Junior and Senior Sports Day at Kilmacrennan NS. The children had a great time and enjoyed the fun and games.

Coastal Clean-Up

First and Second Class pupils partook in a coastal clean-up at Ards Strand recently. Many thanks to all at McGinley Motors who, in partnership with Volvo Car Ireland and Donegal County Council, organised the beach clean-up, helping to raise awareness and tackling the growing issue of marine plastic pollution.

Gardaí visit to School

Many thanks to our local Gardaí- Garda McConigley and Garda Sweeney – who visited our Junior & Senior Infant Classes recently. There was great excitement as the children tested garda sirens, examined batons and wore garda hats

Green School Flag

Kilmacrennan N.S. raised its fifth Green Flag at a recent in-school ceremony. The Flag was earned by the pupils for their on going work on Biodiversity. The honour of raising the Flag fell to Raymond McBride of the Kilmacrennan Men’s Shed, ably assisted by Gerald and hardworking Green-School Committee, under the watchful eye of Mrs Doherty & Master Gallagher. Clodagh of Sixth Class was Mistress of Ceremonies for the day
