Stem Excellence

Kinvara N.S. has been awarded the Plaque of STEM Excellence by Science Foundation Ireland for the 6th year running. The Discover Primary Science and Maths Award aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public. The award is co-ordinated across the school by Ms. Marie Kelly.  The hard work and preparation by teachers means that the children can experience science experiments in their own classrooms. Children at Kinvara N.S. have the opportunity to engage in activities and events run at a national and European level. We participate in Science Week, Maths Week, EU Code Week, Engineering Week and Space Week as well as many more. We often have visitors to the school who hold workshops for individual classes and every year our Sixth Class present a STEM Showcase to the whole school.

For the past two years we have presented our Log of Evidence by creating a website. You can view our past entries by clicking the links below:

Active School Flag

We are delighted here in St. Joseph’s NS to have been awarded our Active Schools Flag after a very busy school year of lots of activities and hard work. The Active School Flag (ASF) is awarded to schools that strive to achieve a physically educated and physically active school community. The process aims to get more schools, more active, more often. We will continue to maintain our high standards and continue to focus on being active. We had lots of fun throughout the whole process and engaged in a variety of initiatives; Run around Europe, Climb the Heights Skipping Challenge. Active School Week, Sports Day, Tennis lessons, National Fitness Day, Christmas Dance, Halloween Disco, Playground Leaders and many other exciting activities.
