Biodiversity at Nagle-Rice-“Save the Bees”

Nov 24 2022

Great news for Nagle-Rice Biodiversity. Resulting from our schools involvement in last year’s ‘Save the Bees’ programme we were delighted to be presented with two apple trees from Mr. Peter Keane of Keane’s Supervalu , Killorglin. A big thank-you to all the pupils, families and staff members who got involved in the ‘Save the Bees’ activities. These two apple trees are a great addition to our growing on-site tree count and our overall on-site biodiversity. They are to be planted in our school sensory garden and will be a great source of scientific investigation and learning for many years to come and so a big thank you to Mr.Keane.

We Celebrate Presentation Day

Nov 21 2022

Today November 21st we celebrate ‘Presentation Day’. We remember Nano Nagle and Edmund Rice. They were the founders of the ‘Presentation Order’ of Sisters and Brothers. In Milltown it was this order that set up the boys and  girls schools known as the ‘Convent’ and ‘Monastery’ national schools. It was when these two schools joined together that our school ‘Nagle-Rice’ was formed. We recall and celebrate the wonderful work done by Nano Nagle for the poor and sick. She cared for and educated children during the Penal Law times when Catholic children were forbidden to go to school. She was known as ‘The Lady of the Lantern’. It is this guiding light that still shines through in the ethos and education of the children in our school. Today we remember all those Sisters and Brothers who contributed so much to the education of all in our community. We would like to thank Fr. Danny Broderick for his lovely prayer service with the children today. Thanks also to the Presentation Sisters for their kindness and generosity to all the children and staff.

‘Our Ocean Our Future’ Programme

Oct 21 2022

Recently our 6th classes in Nagle Rice had the fun task of taking care of some Native Sea Animals. Both classes were giving a lesson about Marine Life from Marine Biologist Conor Hinchcliffe from Sea Synergy, Waterville. Each class were tasked with looking after an aquarium for 10 days. We had Shore Crabs, several Gastropods, Prawn, Sea Anemone, Shanny fish(common Blenny) and the STAR of the show (pic 3) Common Starfish. While we observed and recorded to our hearts content we also took time to show off our precious creatures to all the classes in the school. (pic 4,5 and 6) On Conor’s return the pupils showcased their group projects which had been worked on over the 10 days. This was a wonderful start to our Green school theme for this school year, Global Citizenship – Marine Environment. Mr. F.

Thank You Mr. Fell

Jun 23 2022

It has been a very busy few weeks here at Nagle-Rice since Mr. Fell announced his retirement. We were blessed to have such a humble and caring man at the helm for the past 16 years. This week we have been celebrating Mr. Fell with a wonderful week of songs, poems, music, ice-cream van, parties and more. Special thanks to Gina and all our Parent’s Association who have done an unbelievable job behind the scenes preparing the party bags for all pupils, balloon displays and for the fabulous food display the gave to the staff during the week. They have gone above and beyond. We really appreciate it.

Each class has been busy with art displays honouring our wonderful leader. We will miss you so much Mr. Fell. We thank you for all you have done at Nagle-Rice.  Go n-éirí leat. “Look back with graciousness and thanks on all your great and quiet achievements”-(John O’Donoghue)
