We have been very busy here in Broadford N.S. since returning to school in September.

We welcomed 7 new junior infants who have all settled very well into their new school, thanks to their new buddies in senior infants and the rest of the children in the older classes. We are very lucky to have such caring children in our school.

We were very excited when we heard the news that our school and small village of Broadford would be featuring on a television programme called 'Kildare Matters'. The programme highlights the many beautiful natural features we have surrounding us every day. As the saying goes... 'Good things come in small packages' - both our school and village are proof of this.

Our school was very proud to receive the Proclamation and Irish flag as part of the 1916 celebrations. It was a very memorable occassion for the children, staff and many locals who attended the ceremony. The children performed Irish songs, played the tin whistle and danced, much to the delight of all our visitors.

Our girls under 11 football team reached the semi-final of  the Cumann na mBunscoil Autumn League. They played some very tough games against Robertstown, Killina, Athgarvan and Kilmeade. Our girls showed fantastic skills and determination and most definitely did our school very proud each day they lined out in Maroon and White! We look forward to seeing this team out again later in the year in other competitions such as the mini 7s and under 13 league.  A huge thanks to our supportive parents who were always at hand to give lifts to and from games.

Last week, Paddy Madden came to visit us and provided the children with very engaging lessons on nature. He came equipped with many wonderful resources to allow the children to explore further. All children and teachers had great fun.

We are looking forward to welcoming Fred the Joker this Friday morning. Fred has been coming to our school for a number of years and continues to excite and provide a magical show.

We wish you all a very Happy Halloween!
