|Scoil Naomh Fiachra is a small rural primary school in the parish of Lisdowney, in the north of Co. Kilkenny, Ireland.
We have 65 pupils and four teachers.
Although the school was renamed ‘Scoil Naomh Fiachra‘ several years ago the official name of the school is still Clontubrid Mixed N.S.
The school caters for pupils from four to twelve years old.
The theme of our website is “The Connected Community”.
We want it to be a point of contact for pupils, teachers, parents, the local community, local people abroad and the broader learning community.
1916 Centenary Celebrations
On Wednesday 13th of January Scoil Noamh Fiachra welcomed three members of the Irish Defence Forces to our school to present our school with The National Flag.
The presentation included a history of the national flag and the correct protocol for its use. The flag was then presented to Séan Dowling and the Proclamation was presented to Katie Brennan.The Defence Forces member also read part of the Proclamation assisted by Brandon in 5th class.
The children sang and played Amhrán na Bhfiann and Oró Se Do Bheatha Bhaile on the tin whistle. It was a really memorable day. Thanks to everyone involved.
On the 15th of March (Proclamation Day), every school in the country will raise their flags at 12 o’clock. Parents are invited into the school for this event and the children will perform a number of songs and tunes to mark the event.
