Killavullen NS
Educating in a joyful, positive and secure setting

Hurling and Gaelic Football is a passion for many in K.N.S and over the years we have had regular success and won many titles. In 2018 our senior girls won the Sciath na Scol Football title and our boys were beaten by the narrowest of margins, in the Mini-Sevens hurling semi-final.

Killavullen N.S. has a proud tradition of participation in G.A.A. inter-school activities.  After-school coaching in both hurling and football takes place every Monday delivered by Ms Dillon and Ms Daly down at the pitch. These take place mostly in Terms 1 and 3 but on occasion in the Community Hall in Term 2 also, when preparing for Indoor Hurling.

Additionally, all classes benefit from visiting coaches from the G.A.A., kindly funded by our local club.

Basketball coaching takes place every Tuesday from 3-4pm under the guidance of Mikey O’Sullivan of Mallow Basketball, Miss O’Keeffe and Susie Cavanan.  This activity has proven extremely popular with our pupils and it has been very exciting to see the children’s skills of shooting, rebounding, dribbling etc. go from strength to strength over this past year.  Our senior boys and girls teams compete in Cispheil na mBunscoil and it is thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

Orienteering

Orienteering is another prominent sport in our school that requires both quickness of mind and body and gets children out in the wilds of various parks and woods around the county. Our school teams have had regular success, from the Cork League all the way through to the All-Ireland, with our 5th class boys and girls teams, both receiving All-Ireland Bronze medals this year.
