CORK CITY MARATHON

By | 2018-05-29T16:03:16+00:00 May 29th, 2018|School News|0 Comments

We have a number of teams running in the Cork City Marathon in aid of Knockavilla National School on Sunday 3rd June 2018.  In support of them, we are asking if every family or child could bring €2 sponsorship to school on THURSDAY 31ST MAY.   Children will be allowed to ‘dress down’ and wear sport clothing on Thursday 31st May.  This is a great opportunity to encourage and highlight exercise and keeping fit with our children.  Thank you for your support.

We are really excited to announce that Jacobs Engineering will be sponsoring our school to take part in the Engineering in a Box Initiative next year in conjunction with the Tyndall Institute in UCC.  Our school took part in the protect last year and it was a tremendous success!
