Holy Family School celebrated the importance of reading for pleasure during the week.  The annual book fair took place during which children were give the opportunity to browse through and purchase books which appealed to them and in doing so helped to re-stock our central library.   

Activities during the week included trips to Kerry County Library to attend a workshop with author Alan Nolan, book reading in our own School Library with author Olive Mooney, favourite book spine competition and display, favourite book character selfies, viewing inspiring interactive films online by some amazing authors and illustratirs and of course on Thursday, which was World Book Day pupils and staff dressed up as their favourite book characters.

Maths week 2018 is being celebrated in Holy Family School this year with many activities planned for all classes.  The events of Maths Week were designed to present Maths as interesting, challenging and yet rewarding  -  and  yes even fun!

Our PE hall is transformed this week to ‘The Hall of Number’! All pupils have an opportunity to take part as there are activities for all mathematical abilities.

Principal Ed O’ Brien is very impressed by the enthusiasm that exists for Maths among the staff and pupils of Holy Family School.  Holy Family School is committed to the promotion of STEM and will also participate in the VEX Robotics Programme in the coming year.
