Monday the 13th of May witnessed a very wet start to Active Schools Week in Killusty N.S. Despite the weather we soldiered on and made the most of our active events. In the end, a great week of sport, activity and fun was enjoyed by all. 

Primary Schools Cross-Country Clonmel 

Well done to all our Runners. On a very wet October 11th, Children from third to sixth class took part in the cross-country running competition in Clonmel.  Our 3rd/4th class boys team and our 5th/6th class girls team topped the score board in their division. Great success.

Our Local Heroes 

It was wonderful to welcome back some of our past pupils in early October 2023. Not one GAA county final but two! What  a bunch of women.
