6th Class

Congratulation to our pupils who are going to represent us in the Garda School Quiz County finals in the coming weeks!

Our under 13s came second after they were narrowly defeated in a tie breaker in the Credit Union Table Quiz 2023!

A final farewell to our six class students of 2023. We wish you all the best in your new schools. The Future is Bright!

The 6th class students in Scoil Cholmcille, Kilmacrennan visited the Energia Windfarm at Meenadrein in Donegal recently along with three members of staff from the school, Mel O’Donnell (class teacher), Annmarie Ferry (teacher) and Anne O’Donnell (school secretary). The class have been learning all about renewable energy in class so it was a great opportunity to visit the windfarm to gain a valuable insight into how they work. We were made very welcome by both Jason Doherty and Brendan McGlinchey who facilitated our visit and gave us an educational seminar on how the whole process works. The students really enjoyed themselves and were overjoyed getting the goodie bags along with sweets and treats. Many thanks once again to everyone involved in Energia for facilitating our trip.

CONFIRMATION LETTER FROM FR DUNNE

Dear Parent/ Guardian,
It has been decided to hold our Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, 28th August, in St. Columba’s Church, Kilmacrennan. Following the strict Government guidelines and protocols, it is necessary to have two separate ceremonies. The first will be at 11am and the second at 12.30pm.

The candidates for Confirmation will be invited to attend the ceremonies in alphabetical order according to their class list. There will be fifteen candidates attending each session. The seats will be marked with the candidates name on them. You are allowed to have two parents/guardians, and your sponsor. This means you are only able to have a pod of four altogether. This includes the young adult for confirmation.


The ceremony will comprise of the Rite of Confirmation without Mass (Sacrament of the Eucharist). The readings and prayers will be led by the class teacher and others. You are asked to arrive at least ten minutes early to park and find your allocated seat. Photographs are to be taken outside the Church before or after the ceremony. You are kindly asked not to take group photographs in the church to keep everyone safe, and to adhere to the social distancing guidelines.


It is not necessary to wear the school uniform to the ceremony. You can come in smart casual clothes. The bishop has requested that any celebrations afterwards be kept strictly to family pods to keep everyone safe.

If you feel uncomfortable, or are unable to attend the ceremonies, please contact Fr. Dunne, and he can facilitate you to receive the sacrament at a regular mass in the future.

Below are the names for each ceremony. We apologise that we have to split the two groups but we have no choice with the guidelines and doing our best to  keep everyone safe under the protocols.

First Ceremony  11am
Sean B, Aoibhin B, Stephen B, Jake B,  John C, Ciara C, Brendan , Ronan ,  Salvatorie , Olivia , Oisin , Tori Lee , Rose , Charlie Gall, Charlie Gor.

We look forward to seeing you on your special day. God bless you all.
