St.Kilian's JNS entered the Mission Possible Mental Health Competition at St.Patrick's University Hospital earlier this year. Our entry showcased all the initiatives and work undertaken by our staff in the area of positive mental health over the past three years. We are delighted to say that we were awarded first prize in the Primary School Category. Fergus Finley from Bernardos presented us with our award.

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you to our Parent's Association who entered us in the Image Masters Parents Association Competition and to Richard Carr, School Liaison for Image Masters Photography, who presented a cheque for €400 to us on Thursday 22nd March in the school hall.
Following our great success in the school over the past couple of years in the annual maths eyes competition, the money will be used to buy additional digital cameras for the children's use, and will ensure that every classroom has it's own camera.
Image Masters work with many schools for their photographic needs. Martin Carr from Image Masters has worked with St.Kilians JNS, photographing Junior Infants, First Holy Communion children and others, for many years. Their website is www.imagemasters.ie
