Spirit of 6th Class 2020
An amazing poem written by 6th class pupil Éabha Mc Dowall to mark the occasion of Confirmation which unfortunately could not take place this weekend. This beautiful poem really reflects the resilience and positive attitude shown by the 6th class in these very difficult times. It has been so disappointing for them to have had their final year in Primary School cut short, but no doubt this wonderful bunch of boys and girls will carry this spirit forward with them to the next chapter of their lives, along with some fond memories of their time in Killeen N.S. Well done Éabha!
A Word of Congratulations
Congratulations to 4th class student Juliet O’Brien on the publication of her story in the Sunday Independent. Here is Juliet’s story about her pet dog Coco (people in 3rd and 4th class will be familiar with the series!!!) which I found in the Sunday Independent!!
My Pet: High-speed Bichon buzz is all the rage

HI! My name is Coco and I am a Bichon Frise. I live in Tipperary, and I am two years old which is three years younger than my frenemy Fluffy the cat. From the first day I arrived, she disliked me and my owner was scared that Fluffy would hurt me – but luckily she is used to me by now. Sometimes, if I go too close to her, she’ll give me a tap on the nose but I don’t really mind. At least I’m comfy inside with my teddy called Grandad and she’s happy sitting on the windowsill outside.
My Daddy is a farmer, and when he comes home, I love licking the mud from his boots but my owner doesn’t like this because it gives me bad breath. My favourite place at home is sitting in my Daddy’s chair in the sitting room. I like sitting there, admiring the three rosettes I’ve won at the Iverk Show in Piltown.
My Daddy has two other dogs and they are Border Collies. They work on the farm and they are called Jack and Jill. I like talking to them sometimes, but one day I escaped into the field where the cows were grazing. I got super excited and did the Bichon buzz. The Bichon buzz is a phenomenon that happens when Bichons run around in circles at high speed. Anyway, the cows got tired of me eventually and I headed home.
It’s busy on the farm at the moment as all the cows are having their calves. I’ve recently met the calves and my favourite ones are twin calves called Molly and Holly. I like them because they are both quite small like me.
When I’m not on the farm I love climbing mountains. I’ve climbed the Kinnitty and the Comeragh mountains. Next stop Everest.
Anyway, at the end of the day, I always have to go to bed and I do not like going to bed. So sometimes I hide under the kitchen table, but my owner finds me, picks me up and into bed I go.
I know my owner loves me, because last Easter when my tail got stuck in the go-kart wheel she minded me and made me better by putting cream on my tail and the best part was that I got doggie treats for a whole week. Now my tail is back to normal and I can wag it till the cows come home.
Finest hour: Victory at the Iverk Show
Likes: Licking mud or climbing mountains!
Dislikes: Going to bed
School Closure: Covid-19
