Wednesday Newsletter November 29th 2017



Dear Parents and Guardians,

The countdown to Christmas is certainly beginning with all the decorations and fairy lights being put up in shops and houses throughout the land. It’ll be time to put them up in the school very soon!

It’s always great to start off with good news and congratulations must go to Ella Davies in 5th Class for her great victory last week in the Leinster Irish Dancing Championships’ Competition. She brought in her fabulous trophy to show everyone….fantastic, well done, Ella!

Congratulations go to the winners from the Infant Classes of the Colouring Competition organised by Catherine Henry from 6th Class who is fundraising for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Well done to Bryn Kelly from Mr Hurley’s Junior Infant Class and to Valentina Connelly from Ms McManamon’s Junior Infant Class as well to Kate Martin from Mrs King’s Senior Infant Class. It was very difficult to choose the winners. The winners from First and Second Classes will be announced in next week’s Wednesday Newsletter.

There are only a couple of weeks to go until the Christmas concerts take place in St. Mary’s Church, Enniskerry on December 16th and 17th at 7pm as fundraising events for our school Kilmacanogue National School. Tickets may be purchased from the school office.

I am sure that every one of us would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Mrs Triona Davenport, our First Class teacher, on the recent bereavement of her dear father, Tom McHugh, RIP. Christmas is always a particularly difficult time to suffer the loss of a loved one. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family and to anyone feeling sad or lonely at this time of the year.

Yours sincerely,

Niamh Murray (Principal)
