Active Week 2017

As part of Scoil Cholmcille’s Active Week 2017, we spent Monday afternoon in the sunshine enjoying a variety of activities. Check out the gallery below!


Look at the American  Civil Rights projects completed by Mrs Dunleavy’s 6th Class before Easter.  This term we have chosen a theme of our own and will be using the laptops to complete projects on a subject that interests us.


I have a dream!

Mrs. Dunleavy’s class have been learning about Martin Luther King JR. We listened to his famous “I have a dream” speech. We then reimagined this speech for 2017 based on the issue of homelessness. Have a listen to some of them here.

The Appliance of Science 

The pupils in Mrs Dunleavy’s Class have been using their knowledge of electrical circuits to create working gadgets. They planned their projects, collected the materials and constructed their appliances. We had fun testing them out and fixing any issues that arose.  We are the engineers of the future! Look at the lighthouses and steady hand games below.


Our outing to Arena 7 on February 20th.


Congratulations to our 6th Class pupils who had their Ceremony of Light this evening in St Eunans Cathedral. It was a very special occasion as the boys and their sponsors and families joined together and passed on the light of faith. The boys did a fantastic job.  We would like to thank Fr Kemmy for the lovely ceremony, Mrs Donaghy for her help in preparing the music and Mr Crossan for playing his guitar and speaking to us about the pledge.

We now look forward to February 18th.  Please continue to support your son’s preparation at home as he completes his Confirmation Workbook, practices for the Ceremony and prays the prayer given to each boy by Fr Kemmy.



Mr Kavanagh’s Class and Mrs Dunleavy’s Class are busy preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation which takes place on Saturday 18th February.

Our Ceremony of Light will take place on Tuesday 24th January in St Eunans Cathedral after 7.30pm Mass. All boys making their Confirmation are required to attend in full school uniform with their sponsor or a parent/guardian. If you are not attending Mass, please arrive at the Cathedral by 8pm.

Pupils should bring their Baptismal Candle to school this week.

Pupils should be spending time at home working on their Confirmation Workbook and practicing readings and prayers for the Ceremony.

We thank you for all your help in preparing the boys for this very special day.
