We were delighted to be joined by David Hyland (Kildare GAA captain) today to help us raise our Active Renewal Flag. We are thrilled to have our new flag flying proudly to highlight that our school is one where physical activity is valued, promoted and enjoyed by all! #activeschoolflag Well done to all our pupils and staff who work so hard to keep Kilberry NS fit and active.
The new school term will begin on Tuesday, August 31st 2021 for all pupils.
As per Department of Education guidelines issued recently, our school’s Covid-19 Response Plan which was in operation during the last academic year will continue for the foreseeable.
Our Covid plan is available to view on this website. Please familiarise yourself with this plan to ensure the safety and welfare of all in our school community.
School begins at 9am for all pupils. Pupils will be admitted to their classrooms from 8.50am onwards to facilitate social distancing and a smooth drop off. We ask parents not to drop their child before this time as children will not be supervised.
Junior Infant pupils will finish school at 12pm until Friday 10th September and should be collected from their classroom door. Senior Infants finish at 1.40pm, 1st and 2nd Class finish at 2.30pm and all other classes at 2.40pm.
We look forward to seeing all our pupils back on Tuesday 31st as we hope for an uninterrupted year of fun and learning ahead.
Our school has been working towards achieving a second Active Flag (the Renewal Flag) since Sept. 2020 as part of our School Self Evaluation process. Extra success criteria apply in order to achieve the Renewal Flag and we were thrilled to receive word that our application has been successful and we have been awarded the flag! A super well done to all our pupils, staff and parents who have worked so hard to keep our school active over the years and a special thank you to Ms. Lacey who put together our submission portfolio and meticulously maintained all the paper work for accreditation.. Here is just a tiny sample of the work submitted.. we can’t wait to fly our flag!

Everyday should start with some Yoga, Pilates and Mindfulness Exercises… With the sun shining, the birds singing and music playing, it created a wonderful atmosphere to have fun and be active!
We are delighted to begin the phased re-opening of our school for in-person learning on Monday, 1st March. Junior and Senior Infants, and First and Second Class will return on Monday. Parents, please ensure that you complete the Return to School Declaration forms on Aladdin before your child returns to school. These will be available via the Aladdin app from Sunday.

Our School’s Covid Response Plan will continue to be fully implemented. Please continue to follow all the public health guidelines in order to keep our school as safe as possible for pupils, parents and staff, and to enable the safe return of third-sixth classes from Monday 15th March.
