On Thursday 26th and Friday 27th November last, Kilberry National School celebrated 50 years in our new school building. This was a momentous occasion for staff, pupils and past pupils alike. The school was opened up both days from noon for past pupils and members of the local community to visit. The whole school community were busy for weeks compiling artwork and displays which included photographs from school years gone by. The children entertained everybody with music, songs and poems from 1965 with ‘Echoes from the Past’, our theme.
Each class put together a selection of artwork, stories and photographs to add to our time capsule, which was formally closed on Friday.

Our wonderful Parent’s Council were, as always, on hand to provide the refreshments, and the atmosphere was one of merriment and enjoyment as even more stories and memories from the past 50 years were shared by everyone over a cup of tea and some cake!

The children have been busy over the past few weeks researching the school’s history with help from parents and grandparents and they have put together some wonderful displays and projects for the occasion.
