Sacraments:First Eucharist and Penance,Confirmation

Children in 2nd  and 6th classes  prepare to receive the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation each year. Watch the rolling news and our school blog for updates on dates of ceremonies and meetings..

Presentation Day

To honour Nano Nagle each year, we hold a special assembly on November 21.
Each year pupils produce a short play about Nano’s dedication to children and their education.
Everybody sings the school’s anthem, “One Step Beyond.”
Pupils read the story of Nano at this time, and learn what the symbols in her special icon mean. They recite Nano’s prayer.


Nano's Prayer:
O God, who filled the heart of your friend, Nano Nagle with your love and a longing to do what You wanted, in any part of the world, we ask that we may also love You and make You much loved. If it pleases You, we also ask that she may one day become a saint in heaven, through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Catholic Schools Week

This takes place in January. To mark Catholic Schools Week, all pupils and teachers join together to pray, reflect on what it means to be a Catholic School and to celebrate St Bridget..

Attendance awards at end of year

Good attendance is strongly encouraged in school, and pupils who have achieved full attendance are recognised at the end-of-year assembly, and are awarded a special certificate.

Graduation and farewell to First class boys

Boys attend from Junior Infants to the end of 1st class. Before they leave our school to move into 2nd class, they get a fond farewell from the staff and the other pupils. We wish them the best of luck in their next school. The 6th class girls look forward to secondary school and reflect on their time in primary, with their graduation ceremony held in June. This is a celebration with song, stories, prayers and refreshments!

Friday assembly

Each week, an assembly is held to reward excellent behaviour in class and in the playground. One pupil is selected from each class, by their class teacher. The special certificate may be awarded for outstanding work in class, a marked improvement in work, or for co-operative, supportive behaviour in class. The teachers are always watching out for good behaviour!

Lenten Projects

This year’s Lenten campaign is in aid of the Society of St Vincent de Paul. Pupils contribute towards a whole-schoolcollection for a specific group of items during each week of Lent. For example, the collection in week one is for non – perishables, and in week two, we collect toiletries and cleaning products. We are helping a local organisation and can see the collection grow.

Liam McCarthy Cup

We’re lucky in Castlecomer! The Cup visits us almost every Autumn! In October 2012, Hurling heroes Henry Shefflin, Eoin Larkin, Brian Hogan, Tommy Walsh, Conor Fogarty and Tom Breen, brought the cup in to the gym following the astonishing All Ireland Hurling Final replay. Cill Chainnigh Abú!
