Thank You!!!
The pupils of Liscarroll NS were busy over the past week packing shoe boxes for children less fortunate than themselves.  Every year the pupils of our school respond overwhelmingly to this appeal.  A sincere thank you to all children and their parents for their wonderful support.  We've no doubt that these shoe boxes will make some children smile when they open them.

A Busy June for our Health Promoting School

Liscarroll National School has had a very healthy (and delicious!) June having organised Fruity Fridays and Walk a Mile with a Smile as part of our Health Promoting Schools Membership.

All four Fruity Fridays were very kindly sponsored by Twohig’s Supervalu Kanturk who provided one piece of fruit for every child!!! A massive thank you to them from all at Liscarroll NS!

We could not have had better weather for our Walk a Mile with a Smile having the sun beating down on us as we walked to the Donkey Sanctuary and back.

And to top it all off we got our 2017-2018 Health Promoting Schools Certificate in June as well!!

Light it up Blue Week 2018.

We had great fun celebrating Autism Awareness this year! 
Nora, our talented SNA, created a mural to decorate the walls of Lios Curam. Each class contributed towards its creation. We then held a motto competition and each student worked diligently to think of an appropriate motto that would suit it.
The Parents' Council held a coffee morning in the hall, where we showcased some some fantastic pieces of art; all on the theme of light it up blue. Many parents did some lovely baking for everybody to enjoy. 
On another day, all staff and pupils wore something blue, bought some very stylish autism awareness wrist bands and participated in a whole school Yoga Assembly, led by Laura, another talented SNA.
On the last day, all pupils took part in our "Walk a Mile with a Smile" activity. 
Everybody had a great time and we certainly raised alot of awareness!

Green Schools Committee

posted 23 May 2018, 06:00 by Caitriona OFlynn

Liscarroll National School had a busy two years working towards achieving their Green Schools flag. The theme for this flag was "travel".Each class carried out surveys to find out what was the most common method of transport to school "Car" was the most popular. We looked at ways of trying to change this, but because the school is in a rural setting it was difficult to change the outcome. Different competitions were held throughout the school years to create awareness to ensure the 7 steps had been carried out to achieve the flag. At the beginning of May some of the committee members attended a ceremony in Cork to receive the Green flag. Well done to everyone on this great achievement.
