Pupils had a blast growing their own rainbow, making butter and experimenting with skittles

Green Schools Committee at work

Friendship Week

‘Friendship’ was the theme of our Anti-bullying Week

Science Week – 5th B & 6th Class

Brains were buzzing using hoists and pulleys to create fantastic experimental models.

Junior & Senior Infants getting busy

Our new Junior Infants are settling in well to ‘big school’. There have been lots of singing, building, exploring and just having fun. Our Senior Infants are doing a great job of showing their classmates the ropes and leading by example.

Back to the Stone Age!

Ms Blaney’s 2nd & 3rd Class time travelled back in history to the Stone age. These hunter-gatherers fought for survival and our pupils really got into the fighting spirit of these nomadic people.

First Holy Communion

What a lovely day for our Third Class who finally got to celebrate their First Holy Communion. Thanks Ms Keogh and Ms Blaney and Fr Prendiville for making it such a special day.

Sports Day

We had perfect weather for Sports Day - not too hot and thankfully not wet either! All day long the pupils rotated between sporting disciplines - hurdles, sprints, relay, javeline, dodge ball with lots of fun in between hoola hooping, sack racing, skipping and water...

6th Class Hike in Glendalough

6th Class had a wonderful day in Glendalough hiking in aid of Barretstown and a Buddy Bench for our School. They raised over €2,000 for which Barretstown and the school are extremely grateful. We'll miss you all!

OUR SCHOOL/

Ár scoil

Scoil Chaoimhín Naofa/Hollywood National School nestles in the hills of Wicklow just off the N81 at Hollywood Cross. Hollywood derives its name from Killendeyvin or from the Irish Cillín Chaoimhín meaning Kevin’s Little Church. St Kevin studied at a monastery in Kilnamanagh near Tallaght and after some years went to live as a hermit in Glendalough. Some claim  that he set up a religious settlement at Hollywood or Holy Wood. Hollywood was later to become a staging point for pilgrims on their way to Glendalough.
