Sallins National School

A blog by students…for students!


As part of World Book Day 2022, we were delighted to link up with Petra from CLEVERFOXBOOKS.COM, a local Sallins based online bookshop.


Petra of CLEVERFOX BOOKS came to our school on Wednesday 23rd March and kindly facilitated an exchange of World Book Day tokens for new books. This allowed every child in our school to use their free World Book Day token to get a brand new book of their choice!

The excitement and the joy was evident as each child in each class arrived into the PE hall and selected their own book.

World Book Day is all about encouraging everyone to read more and to enjoy reading.

We would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to Petra and everyone at CLEVERFOXBOOKS.COM for giving us a full day of their time and giving every pupil the chance to take home a lovely new book to read.

Sporting Success for Past Pupils

St. Patrick’s week brought great success for some of our past pupils.

On a sunny Lá Fhéile Pádraig in Croke Park; Colm Dalton, Seán McDonnell and Stephen Kelly took to the field with Naas CBS as they looked to win their first Hogan Cup. The Hogan Cup is the All Ireland Competition for Secondary Schools’ Boys Senior football teams.

Naas CBS beat St. Brendan’s of Killarney in a brilliantly competitive and skillful game of football.

All of us here in Sallins NS, would like to congratulate the boys on their wonderful achievement of securing an All-Ireland medal!

Just a few days later on Sunday 20th March, the Ireland Under 20’s Rugby team took on Scotland in Musgrave Park. Their convincing win secured them a Grand Slam win for their Six Nations Championship.

Past pupil, Diarmuid Mangan is part of the team and we would like to congratulate him on the great achievement of representing his country and on a brilliant Championship win!

We are delighted that, like many of our past pupils, they have continued to develop their skills in sport and most importantly, that they continue to keep active and enjoy their games.

Comhgairdeachas daoibh, Diarmuid, Stephen, Seán agus Colm!!
