Hewetson National School

Millicent, Clane, Co. Kildare


Welcome to Hewetson National School

Hewetson National School is a co-educational school under Church of Ireland management standing on a three acre site about 1 kilometre outside Clane on the Millicent Road.

It was built on this site in 1805 after the closure of Betaghstown School when it amalgamated with the Church of Ireland School in Clane.

Our school has been remodelled to accommodate our pupils' modern educational needs. Classes go from Junior Infants to Sixth Class and pupils range in age from four to thirteen years. We have four Classroom Teachers and one Special Education Teacher.

Welcome to our website. Browsing around, you will see all the wonderful work we do here and find key information about Hewetson School which will give you a flavour of school life here. We hope you find it interesting and informative.

As we start a new year at Hewetson, many exciting things are happening!

It was lovely to see our Junior Infants and parents on 31st August and welcome new pupils for other classes in beautiful sunshine. Despite a very dry summer, our school garden flourished and we look forward to harvesting the crop and sampling soup and various buns and cakes from different vegetables courtesy of the staff. This will link with a Harvest Assembly by Luke Hawkins on 23rd September.

Our window boxes have been replanted and will make everything brighter.

We look forward to many exciting events this term.

Senior Infants have been busy settling back into their school routines again and we also welcomed 11 new Junior Infants into our classroom.

We have been busy exploring patterns and matching in our Maths and using peg boards to create some wonderful patterns. We have also been learning all about the letter A and S, while Senior Infants have a lovely new reader “My Day in School.”

We are looking forwards to lots more learning.

First and second have settled well into the new term and we have welcomed two new pupils to our classroom. We are watching our pumpkins grow with great interest in the school garden. We had a hairy caterpillar that turned into a cocoon and look forward to it emerging as a butterfly in spring. We are going to do some GAA sport during October, and we starting music lessons with Music generation soon.

3rd and 4th welcomed 3 new pupils to their class this year. They will also continue to learn Ukulele with Diarmuid from Music Generation.

5th/6th will represent the school at An Garda Síochána’s Centenary event at Clane Garda Station on 28th September. They will continue to learn guitar with Diarmuid from Music Generation.

We are so happy in our final year of school. Here are some things we are doing this year:

We are currently learning about Ancient Greece in History, Geography, English and Art.

We are also starting our class novel The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.

In Maths we are doing the Front – end strategy. We are to start working on the walls and garden. We are also learning about Hz, volume, and vibration in science.
