Migratory Birds

Children in the Senior Room in Killusty N.S. collaborated with the local Community on environmental education. They participated in a bio-diversity project - Migrating Birds in our local area. The children drew pictures and created stories about migrating birds. 


They embraced the opportunity to think about Biodiversity and observe our visiting nature from other parts of the world.

Green Schools
We did it again!

Killusty N.S.  is a proud participant of the Green-schools programme. The aim of the programme is to make environmental awareness and action, part of the life and ethos of the school.​

In 2021 we built on the success of our First Green Flag for Litter and Waste and were proudly awarded our second green flag for Energy and Global Citizenship.  Check out our Project Focus below.

We are conserving energy as best we can by turning off our lights and computers when not in use. Our main area of focus was researching the fashion industry and identifying ways of how we can be more sustainable with our fashion choices. 

The clothing & textile industry is the second largest contributor to global pollution. The process of making textiles is both energy-demanding and pollutant-intensive, involving huge amounts of water, energy, chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.

To combat this we can REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE AND REPAIR our clothes!

Congratulations to the The children in the senior room were recently awarded their Blue Star Flag and certificates for their hard work in completing the programme for the school year 2020/2021.

The Blue Star Programme teaches primary school pupils about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which complement the national primary curriculum.

The idea is simple: to foster better understanding and knowledge of Europe and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among Irish primary pupils in a curriculum friendly manner.

The Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP) is a 12-16 week entrepreneurial education programme for primary school children. Developed in Ireland, this innovative programme opens the minds of pupils to the joy of entrepreneurship while developing a number of skills including  writing, presentation, drawing, technology, research skills, numeracy, financial, consumer awareness, creative thinking, problem solving, team building and collaboration skills.

During the programme the children taking part propose a number of ideas, with one of these being chosen as a class business.

The programme also has a significant impact on building confidence, self-awareness and self-esteem, and an appreciation of individual skills and talents of each child.

Here are some photos from our JEP project in 2019/2020.
