Quiz Team qualify for All Ireland Final!

Congratulations to our U-13 quiz team of Ronan, Eoghain, Thomas and Eilis who have qualified for the All Ireland Credit Union Quiz Final due to be held in the RDS in Dublin on Sunday, April 2nd.  The team battled their way through stiff competition in the Chapter Final in the Mt Errigal to claim a place in the final.

It is a great achievement when one considers the fact that 5,500 teams enter the Credit Union quiz annually.

World Book Day is celebrated in Kilmacrennan

World Book Day 2017  

We celebrated World Book Day in Kilmacrennan on March 2nd.  Fifth Class led the School Assembly on the day, reading excerpts from their favourite novels to all the pupils. Sixth Class pupils have been participating in the Read Dl initiative.  This involved children from various schools across Donegal reading ‘Breadwinner’ by Deborah Ellis.  The pupils really enjoyed the book and they attended the closing ceremony of Read DL in LYIT on the day. All classes participated in in-class events such as Art competitions based on their favourite literary/film/book characters with prizes awarded in each class.  We also took group photographs of participating classes.  These can be seen under the individual class dropbar on the main menuas well as on the Gallery drop-bar.
