Cobh Art Competition

The boys and girls in W.N.S. recently took part in Cobh Art Competition. Using their imaginations they drew a picture themed “Cobh at Christmas Time”.

This competition was a great opportunity for the children to work on their artistic skills and we were really impressed with their drawings, use of colour and attention to detail.

St. Colman’s Cathedral, Belvelly Castle and the “Deck of Cards” were just some of the places that featured in the childrens’ artwork.

Congratulations to all the boys and girls and especially to Ella Kennedy, 3rd class, who won in the 7-8 year old category!

Hallowe’en at Walterstown NS

Spooky, Hallowe’en vibes could be felt in Walterstown NS today as the children arrived to school dressed up in their costumes. Witches, goblins, princesses and cheerleaders were just some of the characters who we welcomed in the door!

The girls and boys had lots of fun and spent the day taking part in scary Hallowe’en activities, arts and crafts and pumpkin hunts. We all enjoyed the Hallowe’en atmosphere in the school and loved seeing all the different, colourful costumes and giving our teachers a fright! Well done to everyone for making such a fantastic effort and we hope you have a spooktacular Hallowe’en!!!

Junior Infants 2022/2023

We would like to welcome our new Junior Infants to Walterstown National School. Since their first day they have really impressed us with their behaviour, manners and enthusiasm! We are looking forward to creating many happy memories with them in the years to come!

Junior Infants have been painting hedgehogs, making rainbow fish and learning new games on the playground. They have been busy during Aistear, building houses from polydrons and lego. They have enjoyed story time at the library, gone on a few nature walks and made lots of new friends!

Creative Schools Week Art Competition

The children based their projects on many different forms of art including painting, drawing, sculpture, gardening, installation, literature, knitting, baking, junk art, architecture, lego, jewellery, film making and many more.

Each piece of art was original and creative and the children enjoyed admiring and appreciating each others work. We were blown away by the standard of the artwork and by the amount of talent and creativity which we have in our school!


The children in 4th, 5th and 6th class were treated to this dark yet funny tale which involved a cookery demonstration!

We would like to give a massive thank you to Alice whose performance we thoroughly enjoyed! If you would like to see another of Alice’s shows please check out the poster above with details of her upcoming performance of Liv which is suitable for 13 year olds +.
