Back to School



It is the time of the year again when young people in Carbury Parish and beyond return to school. Bless them as they start this new year with their friends and teachers. We wish the teachers, new students and those returning to St. Brigid’s National School Ticknevin, Scoil San Treasa National School Kilshanroe, St. Conleth’s National School Derrinturn and St. Oliver Plunkett National School Killina and to those attending Secondary School, all the best for the start of the new term.


Back to School Prayer


Lord, please bless all our students, teachers, friends and relatives as they make their way back to their classrooms for another year. Bless their school and keep them safe.
Be with them as they travel to and from school each day.

Help them to feel excitement and joy in the promise of a new start. 

Give them everything they need to start their classes.  Give them all they need all year.  Give them imagination and creativity, give them wisdom all year. 

Help their teachers have just the right words of encouragement for each student. 

Let this be a truly wonderful year for everyone involved in education.
