School Enrolment 2022/2023


The Board of Management of Knockanean School requests parents seeking to enrol their child(ren) in the school, to return a completed enrolment application form for 2022/2023 (found below) or available from the school office. A completed enrolment application form should be returned to the school office. Completion of an enrolment application form, however early, does not confer an automatic right to a place in the school.

Indoor Plants and Window Boxes

We bought 18 window boxes and we filled them with soil. During one of our lunch breaks the Green Schools Committee and individual pods from the 2nd class worked on them. We layered the boxes with spring bulbs, soil, spring bulbs and on top we planted winter flowers. Members of the green school committee from 6th water them three times per week.

As a result of a project done by three 5th class girls for the Intel Mini Scientist in 2019 on plants that purify the air, we decided to buy some indoor plants for both buildings. The pupils think they are beautiful, it’s nice to see greenery inside and it cheers them up!

Active Schools

Every Friday we set up and teach Juniors, Seniors and 1st class, builders and bulldozers, lifesaver tag, ring toss, relay races and lots more. It’s a lot of fun to play with them and to teach them new games. The younger classes are really enjoying this and we can see them getting better from week to week. We hope the weather continues to be good so we can do this every Friday.
